After the Super Bowl

 

continued

Ann Arbor painter Carolyn Garay, twenty-seven, is in her second Guild Art Fair, having moved off the wait list into the 2011 fair. She sees Ann Arbor as a step toward very ambitious dreams: "to sell my personal art for a living, traveling, and showing at galleries, participating in fairs around the country, or even the world." But she also sees herself teaching painting or life drawing to undergraduates, modeling herself after her EMU professor, Richard Washington.

And much as they miss the Super Bowl era, even many veterans ultimately remain optimistic. Customers know that "there is a handful of shows that, if you want to see the cream of the crop, go there and be ready to buy," Howell says. "Ann Arbor is one of them."

"People always complain at shows, but someone always does well," Griffith says. "Real art and craft buyers are going to buy. They are like football fans--the economy does not bother them. They keep buying tickets."    (end of article)
