I hope you enjoyed the art show.
Actually no, we didn't
John was one of the exhibitors. The weather did us in. When we arrived it was sunny, pleasant, low 80F temps. By the time we set up for the show it was in the 50's. The day the show opened, it started drizzling, miserably. And he's a freelance oil painter - all original works on canvas, no prints, hence it's expensive. Many are quite large. Examples from some shows we did in 2005 can be seen here:
The Edina show, while entitled, "Fall into the Arts", was more of a "crafts fair". You know the type, people selling tie-dyed or batik'd clothing, cute little purses, beaded jewelry, stuff like that. Even if the weather had been fantastic
there wasn't anyone in that crowd who would have purchased artwork like his. Heck, even the crafters were complaining about how bad the show was.
We still had a good time in the area, just not while working at the show
