    Participation in the Scituate Art Festival, N. Scituate, RI

    Hi All,

    If anyone is interested, I will be participating in the Scituate Art Festival this coming Columbus Day Weekend- October 7-9. This is one of the largest Art Festivals in New England and draws somewhere on the order of 150,000.

    I will be displaying somewhere around 20 color images of Nature, Landscape and Wildlife printed from transparencies by a Chromira Machine. Images displayed will range from 11" x 14" to 30" x 371/2" with the bulk of the images either 16" x 24" (or 19" x 24") or 20" x 30" (or 24" x 30"). 2 images will be printed as 30" x 371/2" in Cyro AR OP3 (Abrasive Resistant Optically pure Acrylic), and one piece (24" x 30") in Museum Glass. The images displayed will have been shot on Leica 35mm SLR R series cameras and Linhof (primarily Technikardan 45S) cameras. I almost forgot to include that the photos will be displayed in custom made wooden frames.

    I would welcome any APUGers to visit the show.

    Thanks

    Rich

    Hi Rich, I sure wish I could, but I'll be on the other side of the world that day. I do wish you the best of luck, and I hope you sell every piece you take with you.

    Hi Robert,

    Thanks for the kind thoughts. I know in your case that you are on your way to Australia/NZ so I certainly wouldn't expect your attendance. Let us weigh this: a photo trip to Australia and NZ or go to an Art Show in RI. I know given the option I would take the photo shoot. But for me, it is generally one of my most consistent and biggest money making events of the year especially if we get at least 2 out of the 3 days with good weather.

    In any case, I was thinking more in terms of those living in the RI, MA, and CT areas that may wish to stop by. That is why I also posted the announcement in the New England Regional Group as well.

    Rich,
    I wish I could come by but it's sort of a long drive for me. I would love to be able to see some of these prints you have. Take a quick snap of your display and post it so we can all see. Good luck with sales.

    Gee Derek,

    I'll say that would be a long drive from Colorado. Thanks for comments for luck.

    I probably will not get a booth shot, but I may post an indoor booth shot of my 10 x 15 booth that is 1 or so years old.

    Hi Rory,

    Thanks for the well wishes. This show normally suffers at least one of the three with rain. Frequently 2. Last year was uncharacteristic and we had 3 days of rain. As a result, sales suffered dramatically and crowds were down from normal. The 2 previous years Columbus Day Monday was beautiful weather and sales were great. I hope though as you mentioned that the Weather God's give us good weather, not only for analog Photography but for all the other exhibitors of Art, Craft, and Antiques.

    Hi Drew,

    If you can stop by it would be great to meet you and your family. If you do come though, be prepared for the potentially huge crowd. If weather is good the crowds can almost to be too large. But the people art hearty, they appreciate Art Work (more traditional). I do have a following at this point and the public seems to appreciate Photography. Just hope for at least 2 good days of weather.

    Rich--It's not necessary to post in multiple forums, because all the new threads appear in the "New Posts" view, so I am merging these threads in the forum where they seem to be getting the most views.
