Art Shows 2016

April 12, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

It’s here soon!  Art show season 2016 is about to begin.  This coming weekend (April 16 – 17) I will be in Arlington, Virginia for the 4th Annual Arlington Festival of the Arts.  The following weekend (April 23 – 24) I return to Fairfax Corner for the Fairfax Corner Art Festival.  It is under a new promoter this year so it will be interesting to see what has changed.  I haven’t been to Fairfax Corner since 2013 so I am looking forward to it.

The following weekend (April 30 – May 1) I return to Richmond Art in the Park in my same location booth 81.  Then I get a week of rest and catching up before I go to Greenville, South Carolina for Artisphere (May 13 – 15).  I’m really excited for my first visit to Artisphere.  This is a really hard show to get into and also the furthest I have gone from home for a show since I moved to Virginia.

I haven’t heard from Art in the Park at Gypsy Hill in Staunton yet but I’m hoping to be there over Memorial Day weekend (May 28 – 29).  Next up is my first visit to Arts in the Middle in Urbanna, Virginia (June 4 – 5).

I get a couple weekends off and then I am off to Virginia Beach (June 16 – 19).  I both love and hate this show.  The setup is awful if it is hot and every year on Wednesday when I set up I wonder – why did I do this to myself again?  But visitors and artists come from all over for this show and I get a chance to see and catch up with people I haven’t seen since the year before.  Last year I found a great place that has all you can eat crab legs and I’m looking forward to visiting again.

I have a couple applications out for July but my next confirmed show is August 13 in Blowing Rock, North Carolina.  And then I go to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for the first time to the Shadyside Art Festival on Walnut St. (Aug 27 – 28)

There will be a lot more shows added for September and October but since I won an award at the Virginia Fall Foliage Art Festival (Oct 8 – 9) I will definitely be there.

I’ll keep you posted as shows get added.
