2009 Art Shows & Festivals

Because of the economy I will be reducing the number of shows that require a great deal of travel expenses. In fact I'm finding that some of the annual events have been canceled this year (including my own home town's Art in the Park).

One fortunate thing that that is likely to occur is my participation in some local (Greenville, SC) weekend markets. I'm exploring those opportunities at the moment and will add those dates as soon as I know for certain when and where they will be.

All shows marked in red are confirmed. Dates marked with an asterisk are weekends Ben & the rest of the family plan on attending!

I wish I lived closer cause I would love to come to a show.

Looks like a busy season though, even if some of your shows are canceled. Hopefully you won't have the problems like you did last season. Whatever happened with that anyways?

and I agree with Gretchen, great pic of you!
