Rant from a Friend - Life at the Fairs

Email from a friend after we asked him for some show information:

As to show reviews, I'm uncomfortable about writing anything about an art fair on the internet. I cringe at the idea of a show director reading a bad review with my name attached. Getting into shows in the last decade of my career is so hard. I just don't trust the system enough to put my name on anything.



As to sharing what shows I do, I pass out thousands of card each…
