Good Things about this Art Fair: Professional logistics, friendly staff, professional regard for artists. Solid youth art program with awards. Good layout. Good quality, though I think show may be suffering because there is a large repetition of artists from year to year

Bad Things about this Art Fair:
* Judged by the same judge year after year after year...he is much more highly regarded by the promoter than by nearly anyone else in the industry.
* Mall restrooms are not very close to the show. Show literature invites you to use Dunkin Donuts, which is adjacent to show but the lines are interminable.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
* Two-thirds mile hike (minimum) from artist parking to the show, with no sidewalks and traffic. Strictly enforced by security, especially on Saturday. Risky for jewelers, I would think.

Additional Commentary on this Show:Unseasonably hot and humid weather killed the 2013 version of this show. By Sunday afternoon it was Zombietown. Older crowd, even for SW FL. There was no buying energy whatsoever, and no one I talked to (about 15 artists) had anything better than mediocre results.

Good Things about this Art Fair: Perfect weather. Staff was exceptional, very helpful and accommodating. Director came over on Friday during set up to welcome us. Friday set up all day and drive to your booth for unloading. Ample space on sides and alot of space behind booth. Nice continental breakfast Sunday A.M., coffee both mornings and water delivered frequently both days to our booth. Good crowds both days. Overnight security was very good. Smooth teardown on Sunday. Mostly high quality art. Entertainment near us was considerate with volume. Small enough show so had numerous be-backs.

Bad Things about this Art Fair: Had to use Dunkin Donut restroom and frequently waited in a line. Judge did not appear to have knowledge of my medium. Lots of jewelry, about 30%. Artist parking was along hike.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show: Bring bigger pieces, as they do sell here. Bring a bike or scooter to go back and forth to artist parking.

Additional Commentary on this Show (or about this form): Easy access from Interstate I75.
