Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Bayou City is moving on with its plans for an even better festival in Memorial Park March 27 & 28.
A recent visit to their website shows a new director and art fair contact.
Susan Fowler, former executive director, was terminated at the end of the year. She had implemented the board's decision to expand the show to 450 artists last winter when a shortfall in the budget needed to be met. Kelly Kindred, the former executive director and most recently art fair director who had worked for the Art Colony Association (parent of the show) for seven years, was also laid off at that time.
This was the board's decision as they continue to meet the financial needs of the organization. The new executive director is Joseph Plumbar, the chair of the board of directors.
Kelly will be missed as she sincerely worked hard for the organization and always was there with the artists needs foremost.
