Our Next Art Fair

We’ve been silent for a little bit, but it’s because we’ve been gearing up for our next art fair . . . and it’s nearly here!

The last weekend in July (30 & 31) is the 32nd year for the Downtown Alameda Art and Wine Faire, and we’re excited to be a part of it again this year!

2016 Park St Art & Wine Faire

When we began planning to join art fairs, we learned that brand recognition is key for making sales.  That it takes anywhere from 3-7 times for someone to hear or see your brand before they really feel like they know you.  That’s part of why we were happy to be allowed back this year.

The other part is that it’s great to walk the event and see what the other artists have to offer.  Last year there were a few photographers, but there were lots and lots of other handmade crafts and hang-able art.  Craig and I would each take turns leaving our booth to check out what else was available, and we can tell you there’s LOTS of cool stuff to come see, not just our art.

For those of you who have visited our booth in the past, stop on by this year, because–in addition to our fan favorites–we’ve got some new pieces available.  We’ve also got a few surprises up our sleeves this time around.

So, if you’re going to be anywhere near the San Francisco Bay area next weekend, head on over to the Park Street Art and Wine Faire in Alameda, and be sure to look for our booth.  We’ll be giving away another free print from this event, and we’d love to see some friendly faces.

See you there!

Alameda Spring Arts Festival

Alameda Spring FestivalDowntown Alameda’s Spring Festival
May 7 & 8, 2016

Well, our first art fair of the year is almost upon us, and Craig and I are busy with all the preparations.  We’ve got our tent, panels, inventory (including some new stuff), and water . . . you need plenty of water!

We really enjoyed our first art fair last July (which we’ll do again this year), but this Spring Arts Festival promises to be a lot of fun, too.
Situated on one of the main streets in Alameda (Park St), there will be TONS of great food on offer (restaurants as well as booths).  There are two stages where you can hear lots of great music.  Kids will have plenty of things to keep them occupied as well.  In addition to all of that, many Alameda businesses will be offering discounts on their classes and merchandise.And last, but not least, are the amazing arts and crafts you can purchase . . .As I mentioned above, Craig and I will be offering some new inventory.  We’ve added more prints (including some of his stipple art), and even a new item for us – greeting card sets.  To keep with the theme of the Spring Festival, these greeting card sets will be lovely flowers that I’ve captured through the years . . . some of which were even taken here in Alameda!So mark your calendars and bring your mom down to Alameda for the Spring Festival!  And stop on by our booth to see our new items, or even to just say “Hi!”
