Two things have been taking most of my time lately: Hikes in the forest, and prepping for my first Art Fair. Last fall I decided that I wanted to dip my toe into the art fair world, and I was accepted as an “emerging artist” into the Salem Art Fair & Festival July 18 – 20 at Bush’s Pasture Park in Salem, Oregon.
So… lots of work to do. I’ve been spending a lot of time getting work ready to sell as well as planning my booth. I did my first test run setting up my canopy in the driveway a couple of weeks ago, to see how all of the elements in my head would come together in the real world. Not too bad so far!
Can you envision framed work filling the walls? Matted work and greeting cards nicely displayed in baskets on the tables? Me there, smiling and greeting you? I can! Setting up the canopy made it that much more real, along with the realization that now it’s June, and the fair is NEXT MONTH! Oh my, lots more prep work to do!
If you’re in the Salem area in July, come visit the fair and see all of the amazing art from 200+ artists. You will find me and my art in Booth #50.
