Wow the weekend was a whirlwind! I had a two day show in New Harmony, Indiana called Arts in Harmony. It rained, rained, rained. And then it rained some more. Besides being pretty damp and down right cold, I had a great time and made some sales and I expect a commission or two to come from it. I met a lot of new artists, some that are local to me, and that is always a huge perk of being in art shows. Plus, the people that made it out to the show were all super nice. Did I mention it rained?
Above here is my table that held prints. I had forgotten my tablecloth but luckily my booth neighbor and friend had an extra cloth I was able to borrow.
This being an inside show, I didn’t have any problem with my walls. But just this week I applied for another outside show in which these walls will probably not cut it since it will be on grass and the terrain is not level. I’m already looking at a website with a display system that will trump this one. It’s called Graphic Display Systems. I like that I can buy just a few pieces at a time and build on as I have the need. I heard about this place by a new and talented artist friend, T.J. Byrd. She has lovely photography and creates amazing montages.
So I always learn a lot at shows and this one was no exception. I’ll study my notes and keep plugging away. And with that I remember an appropriate quote by Winston Churchill:
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal:
it is the courage to continue that counts.”
