Mark W McGinnis Small Gallery

This Spring I decided to start doing some local art festivals to try to reach a different audience for my new work. Here is the results:

Festival 1 — Uhaul manager over slept and we had over an hour delay in getting our van — we had a mad rush to get the display set up in time

Festival 2 — got the van but my storage unit would not open the gate so we could not get my canopy and most of the artwork for the display — we gleaned enough stuff from my studio for an adequate display

Festival 3 — got the van and all my stuff and set up on time — after 2 hours a horrible wind storm came up and blew over all my easels and nearly flew away my canopy (no major damage to the art)– the wind continued and a mad rush ensued by all the exhibitors to pack up and get out of there

Now with all this you might surmise that I am ready to throw in the towel but I am not. I had many wonderful discussions with people and even an unexpected large sale. So,wiser from experience I will continue, mainly next year.

Below are some images — before the storm!

  1. Beautiful work and can empathize with the hassles of setting up, coexisting with the elements, and ultimate reward after all the headache. Glad you will continue to persevere!
