I found an invitation to exhibit at an art fair (similar to SUPERMARKET ) this morning. It was actually sent a few days ago, but having several email addresses and not knowing what day it is half the time, I only just found it.
Normally I’d shy aware from these things, especially as there is a cost, but it is run by one of the Stockholm exhibitors and they seemed to be reliable.
SUPERMARKET was incredibly rewarding, we met a lot of artists, saw a lot of really interesting art and of course it was fun!
I was sort of winding down the group I went to Sweden with because I didn’t want to be tied down with lots more admin, but I am seriously considering this.
Anyone out there interested? ( or more importantly – anyone out there see any major flaws ? )
Copy of email sent…
