Good Things about this Art Fair:
Lovely setting with the trees. Tents are set up in a logical and accessible layout with broad walkways. Good amenities for the artists. An easy going atmosphere.

Bad Things about this Art Fair:
Work at the show is far from consistent -- a range of higher priced good art to some real funky stuff. I know that the Lubeznik Art Center wants to continue to "upgrade" this show, but they will have to be stricter in their judging.

I don't understand the judging categories as 2-D is one category, and photography is another, and all the rest of the pottery, glass, metal, and woodwork is thrown together in fine craft. So there was a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in photography i.e. winners in photography no matter what, which seems a bit much.

This is an easy show to participate in, but it just does not get the volume of informed customers to make it a really good show.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
Carefully consider whether this show is really worth driving a distance to attend.

Additional Commentary on this Show):
The judging really needs to be revamped in this show.
