Any info on the Historic Shaw Art Show near St Louis MO - It's in early October - anybody have a comment that they would like to throw out about it. Is it well attended?

Thanks for the welcome. I have not been on here much. Been busy making jewelry and my man & I also ride for BACA (Bikers Against Child Abuse.)
Look forward to meeting some new artists.

Hi Tom- thanks for your coment,. I been earning my living as a visual artist for 25 years but I have never done an art fair or festival by myself, so I am looking forward to give it a try.

Haven't had a chance to look it over much, been pretty busy. Goin' to the Mushroom Festival in Mansfield, In. tomorrow. Don't know how it will work out. Sunday, Barb and I are working the WTVP auction (settin' up the items to show on air). Things will be a little more normal Monday.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for friending me and making me feel welcome! I stumbled across this site and it looks great! I'm a newbie with shows. Applied for a lot of 1 day shows close to my area in South Bend and Michigan and am waiting anxiously for my letter of acceptance...:-)
I'm a lampworker!
