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!
