Good Things about this Art Fair: Always great sales, always wish I had more inventory. We are treated very well by the show, especially with the preview show food. The quality of work is so good that "everybody" feels intimidated by everyone else. (I am not really speaking for anybody here, it's just that this comment came up a lot while talking to other artists. And I feel intimidated too.)

Bad Things about this Art Fair:
Expensive to do, but with big indoor shows like this, it's kind of the norm. I also live far away, but it's worth it. Long days, and many days (5), but I love sleeping in on three of them. Can't think of many bad things.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
Bring a lot of inventory, make your booth look really nice. It's an impressive show. But I find that even here, smaller stuff (under $100) still sells best. So I try to cover the whole range.
