    At the WPSAF last weekend I tried to take a picture with my cell phone and the artist comes rushing up to me saying he did not allow people to take "shitty pictures" of his art and spread them around. He even had no photography signs (which I didn't see cause I was looking at his art) He said these were his works and they are for sale. I get his point to a certain degree but I would think a starving artist would value any possible social media buzz that could be created. Exposure is key.

      I got into a long discussion about this with and orlando artist. Who is the artist marketing too? Everything in orlando seems to be about vanity and status. just drive through orlando and you see club vain club vanity.

    It was fun although we did not get to hook up with anyone and the rain closed things down. The wood fire pizza was a delicious lunch.

      We did not see you Ron, If you ever go to an event late and want to find us just call. Glad u had fun. The festival def has a good vibe every artist I talked to was great. We caught the soundcheck for Mindi Abair. Too bad for that horrible weather. The show is also today.

    Where is the designated meeting spot? How about near the fountain in the courtyard area? Or in front of the Italian restaurant... It would be a good idea to clarify this before hand maybe since it will be loud and difficult to find people with so much action and chaos.

      Geez. Just asking.

      Im looking for us all to meetup at the entrance on the back side of amc theater. I have no idea where the fountain your talking about is or the italian restauraunt because im not a local. Its fairly simple to park behind amc and walk in and it seems to be a fairly centralized entrance ( by that i mean everyone that parks behind amc can only come in one way). I would suggest calling when you arrive if you need help finding us. [masked] 2174. I will more than likely be there first and post updates on the meetup page saying specifically where we are at. Laura I can definately call you. steve everytime i try to call it seems like your numbers different. If either of you 2 wants to be listed as an event organizer a use your specific spot let me know, ill let you edit the posting. It would be nice to have some co organizers who members can reach out to or call for directions. Ill have to find you when i get there though.

    Not that I take a lot of pics at art shows but that's the first time any artist has said anything and respectfully I still don't get it.

    Not to be a Debbie Downer... but... I went to this event last year and was very disappointed with the attitude of many of the artists. They don't want you to admire their art, they want you to buy it, period. I heard several, at different times/intervals, bitc... complaining... to each other that they had wasted their time participating because they weren't making sales. I finally just left, because I went to enjoy the art and the atmosphere, not to buy anything.

      I agree with Joe. The show is worth it, but fine artist's need to learn to make a personal connection with their audience/potential customers, just like a musician does with his. All art is about finding that personal connection. When it happens, then the audience wants to take that experience home and buys the art.

      Some people are snobs and clearly take themselves far too seriously.
