We visited this show today. Gail and I have never attended or participated in a Howard Alan show and we were curious how his first entry into the St Louis market would do.

The art was all very good and a lot of it is new to the St Louis area. It did remind us a lot of the Amy Amdur shows, with which we have several years of experience. Several of the same artists and much the same overall 'look' to the show.

The heat was pretty devastating to attendance. It only got up to 93 today, but it felt much hotter on the Galleria parking lot. I guess we are fortunate since it is supposed to be up to 99 later this week. By the time we were on the last row of artists, I was no longer looking at the art and was ready to get back to the air conditioned car.

The artists we talked to seemed to do okay, not great by any means, but I think enough to do the show again. Probably not bad considering the weather and the fact that it's a first time show.

I don't understand, though, why the tents were oriented the way they were, with the backside of the booths out towards the public areas. Entering the show the way we went, it looked pretty trashy. The backside of the booths themselves weren't all that bad, but they had storage for construction barricades and other junk just laying around that looked pretty bad. The backside of the booths also faced the main thoroughfare, Brentwood Blvd. Why wouldn't you want that side of the show to look its best is beyond me.

I drove by the show 2x that weekend. Unfortunately, I was too busy to actually stop. I saw the tents from Brentwood Blvd and must agree about the weird orientation. The backs of the tents probably did nothing to bring in more traffic. If I hadn't known about the show, I would have had no idea what was going on there.
