I love doing art shows, they are the primary means in which I get to personally introduce my photography to my customers. I enjoy the interaction and seeing people's reactions to my work. I also love hearing people's stories when they can relate to a particular photo.
In 2014 my intentions are to continue to participate at the Riverside Arts Market (RAM) in Jacksonville FL as well as show at other art shows around Florida.
Please check my 'Schedule' page for an updated listing of events and promotions.
As of this writing, Jan 2014, I am looking to participate in the following:
Riverside Arts Market (RAM), Jacksonville FL - This is a weekly show held on Saturdays from 10am-4pm in downtown Jacksonville FL. The main season begins in March though there is a smaller version of the market starting Jan 11 from 10am-1pm throughout January and February. I'm planning on showing for a couple of these winter markets but nothing is set just yet.
New Smyrna Beach Art Fiesta, New Smyrna Beach FL - This is a long-held art show during the weekend of February 15-16 in downtown New Smyrna Beach. I'll post more information on this show once I confirm that I'm attending.
New Smyrna Beach Hot Air Balloon & Sky Fest, New Smyrna Beach, FL - This is a great event held this year the weekend of March 28-30 at the New Smyrna Beach Airport. All sorts of activities are held at this event. The main draw is the Hot Air Balloon flights early in the morning and a balloon glow in the evening, an air show during the day, a night air show, a large vendor area and a big children's carnival activities area. There are static displays as well so you can get up close to some of these incredible aircraft.
Again I'll add more information once I know more about my participation.
Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival, Fernandina Beach FL - This is the 51st year of this outstanding event held along Centre Street and waterfront in historic downtown Fernandina Beach FL May 2-4.
