Good Things about this Art Fair:
It's Laguna Beach

What could this Art Fair have done better?:
Advertise the event. Redesign the venue, reduce the number of exhibitors, enlarge the booth size, lower the costs, instead of a ten week show reduce it.

Move to another venue away from Sawdust Festival.

Advice to Other Artists Considering this Show:
A word of caution if you are considering being an exhibitor: The promoters are not honest, stated attendance is 4-60k for the ten week duration of the show. this is NOT true. The attendance is less than 20,000, that comes out to 2000 per week.

The venue is small, no air conditioning. Sales are a huge disappointment.
