My feeling is just tell it like it was what was it like from your point of view as an artist

Oh - I want to do an artist review on Art on the Mall at the University of Toledo. I know EriK Gable did a visitors perspective but I was an artist at the event.

Thanks for support. I agree 100%. It is fun

Once you do one they become fun and easy. After all the site is called "Insiders" and if there is no "inside information" we all loose in the long run. Also there is always some interesting story about a personal experience(s) at shows that are fun to share. I think we all learn from the nuts and bolts too.

Well, some of us have to be encouraged, maybe, to feel qualified to do a "review." It's a good starting point, anyway.

It is indeed helpful--especially for those of us who are clueless as to how to blog.

A show review is actually pretty easy to do.

Think about it this way.

You are talking to a friend, maybe an artist, and you want to tell them about your recent experience at an art show.

Just write it like a conversation.  It will flow.

Otherwise, there is the template to use--which frankly is the Sunshine Artist Magazine model.  Personally, I find their approach a little too cold and un-furfilling.

But, that is just me.

Thanks again for taking the time to find that old article and post it.  Nels.
