Setting the Schedule

The 2018 Show Schedule is going to be lighter than in previous years. Two shows in Florida to start off the season, and more local shows with less travelling this year is the way it's shaping up.

Getting into shows is much more involved than most people think. We, as artists, apply yearly to most of the shows we do. After filling out an application, sending in our slides and a check, a jury looks over our work and passes judgement as to whether or not we get to come back again this year.

Once we've been accepted, we pay a booth fee for the space at the show. If we're lucky, the show staff is helpful, friendly and cares about the artists. Everything else we bring with us -- the tents, the display panels, the bins, and most importantly, the work.

So when you see me at the next show you attend, say hi, and stop in for an eyeful of this year's fantastic new work. When you can't get to a show, know that you can always come to my virtual show, here online!
