This past Saturday was the annual Currituck Art Extravaganza. This is a small indoor show put on by the Currituck County, N.C., Arts Council. The show was just 5 hours long, but they had a steady stream of visitors, and I saw a lot of work being carried out the door. The Arts Council does a great job with this smaller show. They have a good balance of styles and just the right amount of Artists. Last year this show was my best one day show, and topped several two day shows I did. This year my sales weren't that great, but I'll definitely be back in 2011.
The Arts Council sets up large A-Frame displays for the artists, so we don't have to set up display racks. You get your choice of an A-Frame or a table spot (I took one of each). The really great thing about the show is the support they get from the local people, and the large number of volunteers. The Boy Scouts were there in force to help us unload and carry stuff into the school. When the show was over, the volunteers had the room cleared of tables and A-Frames almost before the artists had their stuff packed up!
The Currituck Arts Council definitely deserves a big "Job Well Done" from the artist community. It's one of those shows that's a pleasure to do, even without big sales.
