Your name for this show isn't quite accurate: Should be: Sanibel Rotary Arts & Crafts Fair.

There is another show, same location, exactly one month later, put on by the Sanibel LIONS Club. It's not nearly as well attended and the quality of work is much lower. Artists won't want to confuse the two. :-)

Good Things about this Art Fair:
A very good, helpful crew managed everything - they were every where during the show. I am not positive, but I think they added a whole new area - with wait-list exhibitors.

The art we saw was top notch. Sunday was typical with lookers. Unfortunately, they have huge tables inside the bldg where they sell jewelry & accessories made in Guatemala very, very cheaply benefiting the Rotary
Club & the Guatemalans!

What could this Art Fair have done better?:
Cease to add more exhibitors - cutting the pie smaller & smaller - as most shows have been doing.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
Extremely difficult to navigate the island because of the traffic. There's a toll to get on the island - but none to get off. Traffic just crawls.
