"Thanks Rita, maybe I'll meet you and your husband at one of the shows down the road. Heard about you both from other Photographers. I was helping Bernie learn to paint he'd thought about going down a new path. Mike"

Fairhope 2013

Thought I'd give my 2 cents to this festival being a newbie to the show. IMy booth was right at the end of the chamber part and the beginning of the Arts center show, yes there is two different events butted up to each other. Very interesting talking to artist on both sides you seem to get a lot of different reasons for why who has choosen the show their in. I still didn't see the difference other than the way the booth layout was. On the chamber side all the artist had a corner so that was…

San Marco Art Festival in Jacksonville Nov. 17, 19th Howard Alan Event

Posted on June 20, 2012 at 10:07am 0 Comments

Just asked about one show in Florida and this the other one I thought about trying out in the Jacksonville area. It's also a Howard Alan Event and I've not yet done one of his shows, don't even know if I can get in. Again I didn't find any comments about the show and if anyone has any like to hear about it. I do have friends in Jax so I wouldn't have hotel expenses which is a plus. Thanks Mike
