Just found out I will be doing Ann Arbor this year! To say I'm excited is an understatement. Who else is doing one of the fairs. We should meet up.

Jury Photos

Hello everyone. I'm a bit of a lurker here and rarely post but I wanted to share with you all. I have been busy applying to shows for next spring and summer. This year I decided to enlist the help of Larry Berman to photograph my jury images. I am so glad I did. Mr Berman is a wealth of knowledge and his work is second to none. Every time I apply to a show I am just as thrilled to see my photos as I was when he sent them to me. If you have considered upping your game do yourself a favor and…See More

Hi Scotty,

Wow, cool looking page!  Welcome to Art Fair Insiders and thanks for jumping right in.  We're delighted to have you joining us and hope you'll take advantage of all the information to be found here. I'm a fiber artist too (knit/felt), what do you do?  Any pictures?  Thanks and continued success.

I hand knit and then felt (hot water shrinking process) hats, handbags, pins, etc.  I've been doing it for about 15 years now and mostly do indoor shows in my area.  I also sell in upscale shops and galleries.  Your work sounds really cool, would love to see some pix sometime...welcome aboard!
