    Winners! 2015 "Best Art Fairs in America" Survey

    in Business

    ArtFairCalendar.com has just finished its 3rd annual "America's Best Art Fairs" survey and we announce the winners. Our survey is the only national online look at the country's juried art fairs and craft shows, designed to reward the festivals that create opportunities connecting artists and communities.

    We asked our mailing list of over 50,000 art fair patrons what was the best art fair in the country and had an amazing nationwide response. Nearly 90% of the respondents completed the lengthy 25 question survey and the answers were both expected and intriguing. 

    Listen to find out what the Top 50 shows in the country are as voted on by the people who attend them. Discover their choices for the best regional fairs, best urban fair, best small market show and the best cities for art fairs.

    We'll share the survey answers on:

    what makes a show "Best"
    why people say they attend an art fair
    why they don't attend shows they used to love
    suggestions for show organizers

    Lynn Smith, vice chair of the Old Town Art Fair in Chicago, will give her insights on how the fair garners so much enthusiasm throughout the greater metropolitan area, making it a "must attend" event. Art buyers from Florida and Ohio will also join us to tell us why they attend art fairs and buy art.

    ArtFairCalendar.com's mission is to promote the American tradition of art fairs by showcasing events where art collectors find hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind fine work and encourage the interaction of client and creator.

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Christian de Mesones & Drew Davidsen!

    in Music

    Get ready - this may be a LIVELY show!  We are getting full-tilt boogie into the holiday season with a show that kicks off DECEMBER!  It starts at TWO p.m. Eastern - so that we can have plenty of time in case more "guests" can join us :)

    Christian de Mesones (aka "Big New York") is the Ring Leader of an event coming up SOON that merits attention.  It's a Smooth and Funky Christmas Celebration - at Bethesda Blues and Jazz - in the shadow of Washington, D.C.  Starring in this artistic endeavor: Eddie Baccus, Jr. - Elliot Levine - Keith Anderson - Rob Maletick - Willie Bradley - and (confirmed for "Hybrid Jazz" on 12/1): Drew Davidsen!

    Drew has been a contemporary Jazz favorite for a while now - an ace guitarist with awesome songs that have landed him on the charts.  He'll be swinging by after Christian's short but significant visit.  Now, if you don't know a lot about BNY, you need to understand that he has been playing bass for over thirty years.  He graduated at the age of 18 from the Bass Institute of Technology in Hollywood, California - where he studied with greats like Abe Laboriel, Steve Morse and Ray Brown.  Christian has been involved in multiple genres for so many years that folks know him in ALL areas of the country. He was in a Hard Rock cover band in Hawaii; a crowd-pleaser in his stomping grounds of New York City with his own Metal group, "Twice Shy."  He became immersed in Hip Hop, Urban, Latin Jazz and Gospel when he moved to Virginia.  One of the ensembles in his adopted state was SO popular that folks still buzz about "Big Patt & Legion."  

    Bassist, composer, teacher, clinician, and mentor - this beautiful bear of a man put together some AWESOME talent for this upcoming show.  And we'll play a track from EACH artist!  Join us on 12/1: at two p.m. Eastern!

    The Art of Balancing Life Show

    in Spirituality

    Do you ever feel like you deserted yourself a long time ago due to your inner fears of not measuring up to your true potential? The Soul always lets the body know when it doesn’t feel as though you are living up to its potential, because the Soul is limitless and bountiful, so being anything other than that gives the Soul pain and that quickly becomes the pain body that we talk so much about on this show. This is where balance comes in. After many years of going through my depression and mental pain for about a decade, in fact, for me it is more like my entire life—from birth, LITERALLY! I realized that balancing life really is an art form. Life requires energy to manifest whatever it is that you desire to create in your life and balancing things like work, playing with your pet, time for your hobbies, favorite TV programs, time with friends and family all takes knowing the art of BALANCE. In this show, we will discuss how to balance your life, from the physical to the metaphysical to the emotional. We will ask the question: ‘When can I know when there is too much on my plate?’ in regards to everyday life, as well as the question: ‘Can the brain get overloaded with too much information, and how can we ease the mind from overdoing it?’ We will also go into the reason we are here on this Earth—to create—and as creative beings, when is the right time/how much time do we need for rest and relaxation in order to stabilize our bodies in order to go back to creating in our every day experiences. Finally, we will discuss various ways in which to balance our spiritual needs with our physical needs in order to continue ascending into the light that is where our true Home is—and ultimately where our Soul dwells in eternity. I hope you join me for what I believe will be an amazing show....
