Need to replace my Toyota Sienna XLE AWD

Hi Friends,I walked away from a rollover car crash two months ago - my 2006 Toyota Sienna XLE AWD saved my life...gotta love those side air curtains. I ended up upside down hanging by the seatbelts until the paramedics came but I walked away and am just dealing with residual whiplash issues.  Unfortunately, my van was totaled.  I've been on a search to replace it since my insurance settled with me but can't find what I need.  Here's the list if any of you have one you'd like to sell or knows…See More

"p.s.  I've been to some very expensive shows (Sausalito for example), who don't give you an extra inch beyond the 10 x 10."

"No need for a different set-up.  This is bonus space for you and your neighbors - give thanks that the show organizers were so thoughtful as to lay out the show this way!"

"I'll bet Honey was sweet.  Beagles have their own niche in the dog world.  Ours was Ralph, and he was a bit of a rogue.  He and Honey probably would have hit it off."

C.C. Barton replied to Pamela Wiggins's discussion Print Racks
"If you use propanels, they make them in different sizes.  I realize even the small one is fairly wide, but they offer a divider that separates the width, which might work for you."

What are the best things about art fairs
$$$$$
Seeing old friends
The kindness of strangers
Best show ever and why
Saint Louis Art Fair - Clayton ...several years ago - Most money and fastest sales...pure art show nirvana.
Worst show ever and why
I have a mental block about this, so the name of the show eludes me...but it was a small show in east Texas many years ago and was so hot and humid I thought I would pass out...and of course there were no buyers out for that kind of punishment. Nada...zip.

I never had to leave a show...for any reason.

Anyone have lodging recommendations for Lakefront in Milwaukee?

Posted on January 25, 2018 at 11:48am 2 Comments

I've done this wonderful show in the past and was really happy to have received my invitation for this year.  In the past I've stayed at County Clare Inn & Pub because of its close proximity to the show and also, very importantly, because of the restaurant within. It's a great place to stay, but pricey.

Because I'm doing very few shows at this time (rotator cuff surgery upcoming later this year) I thought I'd ask around for less expensive lodging suggestions from people who've…

Where to get Tru Vue Framing Glass in Santa Fe, NM

Posted on November 1, 2017 at 5:15pm 20 Comments

I've just relocated to Santa Fe from Colorado and no longer have delivery of framing glass to my studio in Santa Fe.  This is critical for me as I frame my own work for sale and to ship to galleries.

The only vendor listed on the Tru Vue website in my area was Larson-Juhl, but they don't create accounts if you're not a brick and mortar storefront.

If any of you New Mexico artists who also frame work know of a resource for Tru Vue framing glass, I would appreciate you…

2015 Bellevue Art Museum July show - Review wanted for 2D

Posted on February 8, 2016 at 6:15pm 10 Comments

I've done the BAM show several years running in the past, but was juried out in 2015.  The last time I did it was 2014 and the energy, especially in the evening, was way down.  They don't sell beer and wine for customers to walk around with and the music they provided was inexplicably placed inside the shopping mall with chairs for people to sit in there and listen to the music!  This was, of course, of no benefit to the artists.  

I just received my acceptance for 2016 and…

Does anyone have any experience with Queeny Park in St Louis?

Posted on May 16, 2012 at 12:19pm 2 Comments

I've been on the hunt for a few good indoor or panels-only shows to do.  I came across the Queeny Park show in St Louis - apparently they have one in the Spring and one in the Fall.  I'd never heard of it, but have always done well at shows in the St Louis area and wondered if anyone has done this show or has information from anyone they know who's done it.  Thanks!
