Good Things about this Art Fair:
The Workhouse Arts Center is a great location for a show. Easy load in and load out. Breakfast and lunch provided for artists.

Bad Things about this Art Fair:
Saturday was a brutally hot day (heat index over 100 all day). The show ran until 7:30 on Saturday, which was a little too long, especially in the heat.

Attendance was very low, which we all attributed to the heat, but Sunday's weather was much better and the attendance wasn't.

Better marketing and advertising is needed to make this show work.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
It was a relatively easy show to do, but the attendance was so poor that I won't be doing it again.
