What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
The people I meet and the interchange of ideas.
Best show ever and why
The Fairhope Grand Festival of Art 2012 was my first show after moving to Fairhope. The weather, the people and the lovely small town made the show charming and lucrative!
Worst show ever and why
I won't name the show - that seems wrong. Tomato/tomato you know. It could have the best show for someone else. But suffice to say it was 100 degrees in the shade (and there wasn't any shade), 100% humidity, and the recession was in full swing.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
I came across a UTube interview with Connie Mettler while I was looking for used mesh panels.
