Many thanks to these members who your votes chose as the most helpful and generous members at Art
Fair Insiders this month. These three, plus all the rest of you who contribute to this web site, are bringing transparency to our business. Your willingness to share the "good, the bad, and the ugly" at the art fairs on the streets of America is making Art Fair Insiders THE place to be online.
Many thanks to:
for her consistent upbeat approach to the nation's art fairs and for shopping at the shows! Geri is an art collector who covers the fairs in Florida and the Midwest - member since November 9, 2008! (isn't that the day we started the site?)
for his straightforward helpful attitude. A man who gets down to business and tells it like it is. Count on Phil to explain it to you clearly - member since September 2009.
for her thoughtful writing and sharing of her art fair stories. Pat has been through the art fair wars and is willing to share her tales with the rest and lend a hand to the newbie - member since April 2009.
Please stop by their pages and congratulate them and thank them for their contributions to this website. Without their help we would be nowhere.
There were great nominations this month. Luckily former "Art Stars" continue to contribute volumes of helpful information. Many thanks to all of them.
Keep your reports and questions and answers coming.
Today we are almost 3000 members strong, hosting 6279 photos and the discussions are about all aspects of the business in over 600 topics and 1000 blog posts.
Who knew we could do this? I am so psyched every time I visit the site -- I love the show review posts from this past weekend. They are about art fairs in Illinois, Indiana, Arizona, Virginia, New Jersey, California, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Kansas and Maryland.
The news continues to pour out -- who knew Amy Amdur rocked at Cantigny? A person who almost singlehandedly built the nation's great craft markets, Carol Sedestrom Ross, died from a heart attack last week.
