Years in the Art Fair Business
First show ever
I started an art market in Houston - without any prior experience with shows.
What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
The community that evolves around them. The creative energy at the good ones!
Best show ever and why
Well, I'm rather fond of mine. I love the Bayou City Art Festival in Memorial Park. It's relaxing and so easy to get around. The art looks better I think in a natural setting like a park.
Worst show ever and why
One of my own- the Texas Democratic Convention in 2004. They asked me to setup an art market area in the vendor hall. The organizers did not communicate and had the food moved so far away from the vendors that you could hear a pin drop in our exhibit space.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
I think I found you on my own.
What is one fun fact about yourself?
Never leave me alone with a marker in a room with white walls.
