Art Fair Insiders

Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

Holding our breath in Ann Arbor, Columbus too

People in my part of the country have had their ears perked up for any news that the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair (the original) has hired retired director Shary Brown's replacement for quite some time now. I talked with Karen Delhey at the Street Fair last week and she told me the Board was still interviewing.

A couple of days later I received a little more insider information. My informant (and I) have been keeping tabs on the job search since last Fall when Shary announced she'd be retiring after the 50th art fair in July '09. This person told me he/she had applied for the job early on, well before the deadline. The deadline passed in the Spring then the Board decided they wanted to see more applicants so they extended the deadline (sound familiar?) and posted the position for a nationwide search. My informant applied again. Months went by. Then a phone interview. Weeks went by. Then an actual interview. Weeks went by. All references were called, more time went by. Phone calls were not returned. But, lo and behold, it is looking like a choice is coming forth soon. Stay tuned! You'll be the first to know.

Actually, speaking of new show directors, can anyone give me any information about the departure of Katie Lucas from the Columbus Arts Festival in Columbus, OH? Katie, are you out there?

This festival is also interviewing candidates for their big adventure that takes place in early June. Does anyone have any inside line on this one?
