New CEO of Cherry Creek Arts Festival

Lots of us have been waiting to hear this. Who will (or possibly even can) replace Terry Adams as the CEO of the Cherry Creek Arts Festival in Denver? When Terry took over 14 years ago the organization was in very rough financial shape. An event of this scope needs a strong fiscally smart and responsible manager.

We were wondering if the job would go to Tara Brickell, the Associate Director, who has been acting CEO since Terry…

Midwest becomes a Rain Forest; Art Fairs pretty damp

The awaited Spring/Summer art fair season in the upper Midwest seems to be succumbing to extensive storms. My weather info for the coming week is thunderstorms every day! and there is mold and mildew crawling up my house. It seems we are living in a rain forest rather than an arboreal forest.

So how goes it at the shows? Hope you all are prepared with good strong tents and weights as well as insurance.

Many members were in Columbus, OH, this weekend for the big show. Columbus…
