Here's an update on the Brandywine Arts Festival first reported here on August 18
It seems as though the second site at St. Anthony in the Hills is NOT going to be the site for the 20,000 visitor event coming up in two weeks, September 12 and 13, reports the Delaware News Journal in its DelawareOnline.com.
Okay, art festivals get cancelled, but the event which advertises 230 exhibitors has cashed all the applicants checks at around a hefty $350 apiece. Just do the math on that! Artists are scratching their heads and holding their collective breath as they await word from the organizers about the location.
As you all know the booth fee isn't the only expense incurred by the artists, most have also bought materials and produced artwork with expectations of earning at the event. A friend recently told me that if she had a $400 booth fee she would have to sell $4000 worth of goods to break even. Food for thought?
