                    ARTS ON THE RIVER 2017 IS NOW IN THE HISTORY BOOKS (figuratively
speaking).  We had fewer artists than usual, but stuck to our guidelines and kept the show limited
to fine art only..  The weather was gorgeous, and but for a few little glitches, everything went well.  
There were a lot of artists from out of town, and some doing their first public art show.  Winners
and photos are listed on the
2017 winners page.  Audience was good, and more dogs are
making appearances.  We did not have entertainment this year due to budgetary restrictions, but
crowds were still pretty good.  A lot of the winners were from out of town, and were quite impressed
with Columbus.  They are looking at our city in a new light, as a destination for other things.

“Try It Out” Adult Pottery
YOU CAN LEARN A LOT FROM YOUR CUSTOMERS!  Pay attention to what people
say, and get a feel for what they want.  
ART DOESN'T HAVE TO MATCH THE SOFA!
There are subtle ways to make a painting fit in, such as a mat or frame.  Sometimes it's
the contrast that calls attention to a piece of art.  If it's something they really like,
encourage them (gently) to consider a purchase.
TRAVELING WITH YOUR ART

Simplicity makes it easier.  If you want to paint plein aire, get a French easel and a small box
on wheels.  A guerrilla box is nice to have, but terribly expensive.  You can make one with
items from the craft store just as easily.  Take only the necessities, and a few emergency
items like bug spray, sun screen, etc.  To do a show, get some bubble wrap envelopes to
protect your frames, learn to stack carefully.  It usually takes a couple trips to get it right --
don't give up!
