The Palms Springs Art Festival, Palms Springs, CA
This annual juried event which featured 175 artists showing and selling a wide arrange of art in a wide arrange of mediums, is the focal point of this entry. Having been selected by the events coordinator, during the Native American Art show at the Gene Atury National Center back in november of 2010, I was looking forward to showing and selling for the first time in Palm Springs word out on the streets is the Palm Springinites live a luxurious life style out in that california desert. But let me tell you brothers and sisters, it was a tough show, sales were modest, the weather was a bit foul, crowds were sparce, but all in all it was a good time. Chatted and met a few of the other artists and spent my evenings at a charming little pub called the Palm Springs Tavern, a fine establishment indeed. Being an outdoor event, luckily when it rained and it did, it rained during the evening and early morning hours, leaving the days partly cloudy with a chilly wind blowing through the festival grounds, not to mention the snow covered mountains were just spectacular. However come to think of it when the sun shined its bright rays of light at times it actually became a bit warm. All in all it was a decent show, it was organized and the staff were friendly and courteous, perhaps next year will be a better year, with better weather, but never a dull moment in the exciting world of art.
