This show is local for me and do over 10k each year. This past year was stellar. High caliber work wins the sales and you can not find a show that treats the artists better. Hot breakfast and lunch for everyone and Saturday night dinner with drinks. Great prize money. All in all a great experience.

I did this show last Nov. and it was not very good for me (mixed media). I did it 2 years ago with better sales. It has good prize money but not a lot of good buyers. I agree with most of the previous review but sales: 1

Good Things about this Art Fair:
Well-run show with outstanding artist amenities. You can't beat the hospitality on this one. But the sales are still there. Great location, easy in/out.

What could this Art Fair have done better?:
I'm a big fan of this show, so I don't have much to criticize.

The judges seemed to favor clay artists. At least half of the awards went to clay artists...only one photographer won an award, for example. Seemed a little fishy.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
This is a great show in a great location. It prides itself on artist hospitality and it certainly delivers in that regard!

It's well advertised (I'm a local) and well attended. Saturday was definitely better than Sunday, though.

Additional Commentary on this Show:
They extended the footprint of the show one block this year (the block I was on), and it was across a street that was still open, so it was awkward. We seemed a bit disconnected from the rest of the show.
