I love shows put on by artists organizations as this show is. The location is lovely, bathrooms are close, clean and air conditioned. The last of which was really appreciated this past weekend when it was once again, overly toasty out for my taste.
Breakfast was served both mornings with fresh fruit, spinach quiche and more. Even Lox on Sunday!
Lot's of nice work I haven't seen before. Seemed to be quite a few locals with day jobs mixed among us as well.
It's a hard set-up because you have to schlep everything in from a distance but it is over cement which helps. Thank you to Jon and Pat for a very easy take down, getting me to the ferry in plenty of time.
So why didn't it work for many there? The heat and humidity? The PGA Golf Tournament nearby? Maybe for my media it was the 29 jewelers out of 140 booths??? At a time when jewelers are fighting out of sight material costs (gold over $1200 @ ounce), why do shows insist on overloading with jewelers???
Whatever the reason, the show didn't work for me this year, even though I enjoyed it. Try something new next year I guess...
