Good Things about this Art Fair: Easy setup, Easy teardown, Artists were friendly and helpful, hall where show was was well lit. Carpet on the floor, Ample electrical outlets as well as could have plenty of lights if you so desired. Art work at this show was excellent, well juried. Only 81 artists no buy/sell. Promoter easy to work with, sent ample amount of emails before the show.

Bad Things about this Art Fair:
Sound after the fashion show was extremely loud, not able to talk to customers. I suppose people were buying but did not see any bags in peoples hands. There were 18+ metal booths.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
You have to have recycled art, if i were to do it again stay close to conv. center and take advantage of the hotel deals, then you do not have to worry about parking, bring lights and extension cords.
Do not expect huge crowds.

Additional Commentary on this Show:
this show was very professionally well run. The art was fantastic.

We have done this show for the past 6 years and love it. It is very well juried and the management is responsive to artists. The quality of the art/craft is high and Santa Fe turns out for art. The Santa Fe Convention center, where the show is set, is gorgeous with lovely carpeting, great lighting and cool ambience for the arts. Cost of show is also very reasonable and the ratio of cost to sales is very good to excellent.
