Indie Craft Parade 2011
The Indie Craft Parade in Greenville SC has come and gone...5,000 people came out to browse & buy lots of handmade goods from the local artists. It was my first experience participating as a vendor and I really loved it. Dad built the shelves for my table and brought them down from Ohio. Standing at my booth, I interacted with the public as they looked at my artwork & got a great response to the new pieces. There was such a wonderful creative energy there & I connected with some lovely artists who made the weekend even better.
I also found that my mom is the perfect spokeswoman for my art! I am going to hire her as my assistant full time and we shall tour the country's art festivals and become a great success...
I had a great location in the fair on the corner, so my shoppers (and me) had some breathing room with a wonderful view of the Reedy River out the window. I am grateful to my friend & gallery owner/curator Teresa for introducing me to this event. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported local art!
