Art Fair Rage Syndrome, etc.

Off to Ann Arbor last week in the 100 degree heat, but we're tough, aren't we? We know how to dress and be prepared for all kinds of weather. I visited all of Main Street and Liberty up to State after arriving at 5 pm. Met friends for dinner, got lots of cold water bottles handed to me (many thanks to Nels Johnson, my first rescuer), met many of the members here (hello to Ray…

How do you like this Booth? (I made it myself)

Attending the Krasl Art Fair in St. Joseph, MI, last weekend I gave myself a photo assignment: find booths where the artists are not using standardized setups such as Pro Panels and see if I can find some that were designed by the exhibitors. Frankly I had trouble getting good shots -- way too many people in these booths :)

Fever Pitch: Off to Ann Arbor - July 20-23

Just in case you didn't know the art fair business reaches its zenith next week with the presentation of the Ann Arbor Art Fairs - July 20-23.

I went to the Krasl Art Fair and what I learned there... and who I met

July 9 I was in St. Joseph, MI, to do the "street jurying" for the Krasl Art Fair. The jurying was for awards and for reinvitations for the 2012 show.

Why You Should "Click" on Facebook Likes...

From the fwiw department:

Ever wonder why we keep asking you to click on the Facebook like "Likes"?

Actually I wasn't even sure myself but now have the answer. Hint: it makes the item go "viral" and put that post on other sites, insuring that if you are doing some publicity ("I'm going to be at the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts this week," e.g.,),…
