What if they gave an art fair and nobody came? You'd have Arts and Riverwoods. Why is it the show with the highest booth fee had the fewest visitors? I'll refrain from analyzing this and other questions in this space. The show organizers were tireless and the committee may have raised a lot of money from the Preview Night, but we artists were lonely standing at our booths listening to the blaring PA system that night. Most of the rest of the weekend, there were more vendors than customers in the big tent. I'll stop now.
The official art fair season is over for me. I've decided not to pursue the "Holiday" shows. They're mostly for gifts, decorative or practical, and most shoppers aren't looking for fine art. However, if you're interested, you know where to find me!
