Preparing for Art in the Park

I had my one and only art fair experience two years ago at our local Art in the Park. People really seemed to like my work - and I was awarded the $100 2-D prize - but I only made a couple sales. Most of the work I had was priced at $100 or more, so I'm trying something different this year (as I really like to support our local Civic Art Center and this is one of their events). I have over 35 small works to display and will hang a few framed larger pieces just for fun. The smaller pieces are in the $25 - $45 range, so I'm hoping they will wing their way to new homes. I've had a lot of fun making "concise statements" with the small canvases, but I am ready to take on some larger canvases in the near future. If you're in Galesburg this weekend, stop by the Standish Park Arboretum from 9am - 4pm on Sept 12th. My booth will be on the northeast side of the park, near the courthouse.
