Saturday had just PERFECT weather and people seemed super enthusiastic, I mostly sold small to medium things, but I sold a lot of them. It was the best show I've had in a while and I dont even think i was on the busiest side of the…


can anyone recommend some good spring texas shows?

Posted on December 15, 2014 at 7:53pm 5 Comments

Ive been waitlisted at the big ones, bayou, woodlands.  Are there any other decent shows for painters in texas or nearby in the spring. I'm either leaving florida to go to texas in late march for bayou city if i get in, or april then to the midwest for the summer. I travel full time so I'm flexible.  I've applied to many, but havent gotten a good schedule sorted out as of yet. 
So ya, looking for some recommendations, I havent done any in texas yet.

palm harbor seafood and art fest

this show sucks, and for some bizarre reason they decided to start charging admission this year so the returning artists said attendance was down 80%.  My neighbor at the show was in my opinion a complete art show genius, she does gem stones and dumped like 5000 of them out on a table so people could pick though and she didnt get an opportunity to sit down all day she was so busy. I think it was definitely difficult for me to sell high end paintings next to 5$ stones, but shoot, she's got…

Hi, Megan!  I did not do Zona Rosa because it was so poorly organized and I didn't see that they'd advertised the art at all.  I did see a customer after the show who said she went for the music, not realizing there was art, and saw the few artists sitting there doing nothing.  Sounded pretty dismal.  I would not try it.  Plus, when I asked for my booth fee back because of the lack of communication and advertising, they refused.
