West Coast Recommendations?

Looking for feedback for best west coast venues for fine artists? I'm looking hard at the Boulder City Art in the Park fair coming up Oct. 2,3. Any sales forecasts? Opinions on quality of presentation for the price? (Over 500 samoleans at this late date) Also: Indian Wells Fine Art and Fine Craft Fair, Palm Springs, and Boulder City Fine Art Fine Craft Fair, both in April.

  • Thanks Michael.
    Reno area. Yep, can be hot in the southern parts, but we usually get a shot of snow in late April, early May in these parts.
    RE BC and parts south: Thanks, that's the kind of feedback I need. I've been selling my work, primarily commissions for years, but I'm a Newbie as a full-time artist, and also to the fair circuit.
    I've heard good things now about Mammoth next summer, and I'm looking at some fairs, one in San Diego for this Christmas, and a little closer to home in Sacramento next year.
  • I don't know where you're coming from, but Boulder City has two massive art shows - over 400 artists - and the Las Vegas economy has been hit very hard by the Recession. Sales tend toward low end craft items. Indian Wells gets a 15% commission + a high booth fee + too many artists for the area - Indio is a poor cousin next to La Quinta and many people who come to the Indian Wells (aka Southwest A&C festival) want to know if you'll be at the La Quinta show. I'm going to try out Palm Springs in '11 (if I get in), but I'm tying into a show in the Scottsdale area in Jan. FYI - April in Nevada can be bloody hot!
