Comments from participating artists:

  • In this age when most art shows think they can "improve" their shows by bringing in carnivals and petting zoos, Krasl has not forgotten that it i1930.jpg?width=300s about the artists and kept their focus on that.
  • Congratulations to your and your team for putting on a wonderful event. I especially appreciated the standards committee and the easy load in/load out.  I had a great show!
  • A guy who visited my booth about five times at your show was really interested in one of my large paintings. I knew he was really close, but just couldn't commit. Late last week he emailed me and he bought two of them.  That put me just a little behind last year's good show and Krasl is my second best show of the year behind Cherry Creek!!
