I had a major art fair this last weekend so I'm a little late to posting for the week. Next weekend will be the same. I know, I could have posted from my phone, but I would rather do it from home.
Last weekend was Lakefront Festival of Art in Milwaukee, WI. It's a three day show and the first day (Friday) was from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. I was, to say the least, skeptical that I would have any sales from 6 p.m. on. I was astounded at how much business I got, and Friday was my best day. On the whole, it's an awesome show. As you can see, the whole affair is either under a huge tent or inside of the Milwaukee Art Museum. The best part of that is the weather has less of an effect on the crowd.
I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend, made decent sales, and hope to do it again next year, if they will have me.
Next weekend: Spring Green Art and Craft Show in Spring Green, WI.
I have five more days before Milwaukee's Lakefront Festival of Art on the grounds of Milwaukee Art Museum. I haven't put much thought into this week's blog post. I have been a little pre-occupied. This is the first year I am a participant of this particular show, so I'm a little nervous.
Of course, you will hear me say the same thing about Madison's Art Fair on the Square, also a first for me.
Just ignore me. I have to get back to work! See you in Milwaukee, I hope.
Quite a lot has happened in the last week, or well. to say I have accomplished a lot. Last Saturday I printed four new linocuts, one of which is posted above. Today I am hand coloring them. Hopefully tomorrow I can start cutting mats, getting the prints ready to mat and/or frame. I have a little less than two weeks to be ready for Milwaukee Art Museum's Lakefront Festival of Art.
And I'm both excited and nervous! This will be the first time doing this show and it's a big deal! Between it and Madison's Art Fair on the Square (which I will also be exhibiting) I have a lot to do. Of course, ask any art fair artist if they're ready for an upcoming art fair and they will most likely say "no." The fear of not having enough stock is almost as great as the fear of not selling anything.
So, here I go, back to work! Milwaukee Art Museum's Lakefront Festival of Art runs from June 15 to June 17 on the grounds of the Milwaukee Art Museum. For more details, click on the link.
