Good Things about this Art Fair: Good art, good attendance, well organized, good sales.

Bad Things about this Art Fair: Drunk fraternities around the show. I heard of at least 5 artists having things stolen or destroyed.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show: If you have pottery, request a flat space.

Additional Commentary on this Show (or about this form): Friday was a fantastic sales day. However, Saturday and Sunday were not. Just a lot of lookers. They tell you you should take your work with you each night. But we all know that that is too much work! The streets on which the show is held have many fraternities and sororities. We saw many drunk kids and suspect the stolen and damaged work was caused by these kids.
