Good Things about this Art Fair:
Location: beautiful park like setting surrounded by mountains. Good space between booths.

Excellent booth layout. Very high quality of art. Extremely well juried. Absolutely no production pieces here.

Very well organized. Working with the organizer was very easy. She was professional, friendly and very accommodating.

Load in/out very well organized. Artist parking two blocks away.

Bad Things about this Art Fair:
Attendance was not as good as I thought it should be, for such a high-end show.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
Tough getting into. Quality of art displayed very excellent. You are going to need a very strong and unique product to get juried in. If you are picked as an alternate, don't despair, you could get called up. I did.

Promote your ability to SHIP art. Many people are in the area on vacation and don't live locally.

Be prepared for summer thunderstorms.

Additional Commentary on this Show:
For being labeled as such a high-end show, and actually seeing that with my own eyes, I am surprised at the turnout. Sure, most of the people who showed up, were fairly savvy art buyers, but I was really expecting more people, given its prestige.

Good lord, what a beautiful location!
