Good Things about this Art Fair:
It is hard to know how many people actually came to the show since it is spread out throughout a park. Certainly more than 10,000, but not sure after that.

This show, which has been a fine craft show, has now hired Jerry Dale McFadden, director of the 4-Bridges show to transition it into a Fine Art show. For this to be the first year, I was surprised at the sales.

Located in the heart of the west end of Nashville, it brought many locals and many out of town buyers as well who were visiting Nashville on business or as tourists.

I think this show is one to watch, since Nashville has not had a fine art festival in the past.

Bad Things about this Art Fair:
-mixed quality, but to be expected given transition period ( still many quality artists )
