So many artists so few galleries

There was a time when I said I will never, EVER sign up to show my artwork in anything resembling a line of pop up tents or simply a line of tables. I imagined all the worst weather situations, or schlepping my work and having nothing but bored people file by.

The first time I tried it at a Rachel Carson festival it was a howling rainstorm, pretty much what I expected though loved the place (at the house in Springdale).

Time went by and I decided to try it again this time with Carrie Nardini and her various IMI venues. I got over my resistance and learned so much about facing the public and coming up with display formats all with lots of support from other arts vendors and from Carrie. There is no doubt that appearing in public is very important. While I have been in solo shows and group shows and gotten recognition and some awards there are never enough galleries to get your work I front of eyeballs. This is another way, a different way but a very valid way. You connect with an audience who like art but often don't go to galleries anyway.
