What are the best things about art fairs
great art, interesting people, and travel
Best show ever and why
Many of the top events
Worst show ever and why
A show held in an open field, actually a cow pasture where the committee had to rake “cow chips” from the booth areas. Awful. One and done! Fortunately, I experienced many classy art shows.
