    2014 Winners - Best Art Fairs in America!

    in Business

    ArtFairCalendar.com has just finished its 2nd annual "America's Best Art Fairs" survey and we announce the winners. This is the only national online survey of the country's juried art fairs and craft shows, designed to reward the festivals that create opportunities connecting artists and communities to celebrate the arts.


    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 20 question survey and the answers were both expected and intriguing. 


    Not surprisingly: people love to attend art fairs and many travel long distances to do so. The overall conclusion is: Art is Alive and Well in America and attendance at the nation's shows is proof of that.


    Listen to find out what the Top 50 shows in the country are as voted on by the people who attend them and collect art. Find out which they have chosen as 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
    how art fair goers find out about shows to attend
    why they don't attend shows they used to love
    how far they travel to art fairs
    their suggestions for show organizers


    Laura Berarducci from the Ann Arbor Convention & Visitors Bureau also reports on the economic impact of the Ann Arbor Art Fairs in that community. 


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

    in Spirituality

    Jpin Host Ashley Davene as she hosts this episode solo discussing a super important topic: Depression & Mental Health. Ashley will share from her own experience in battling and rising above depression.. though there may not be a "cure" we can find ways to over come and positively recreate. The realm of spirituality and Ashley's work creating "Art of Love" an interactive guide book to expressing your heart and creating a space of health and self love is more directly tied to the mental and emotional bodies then you might think. We will also be talking about awareness on the topic and attempting to lift some of the taboo/stigmata as millions silently suffer daily because they feel ashamed.

    We talk about:



    the role of the show promoter and why they do it
    choosing a location to host a show and starting a new show
    building and implementing a marketing plan
    the good part of being a show promoter
    the bad part and the worst part

    Film, Oil & Water David Poritz & Fair Trade Oil

    in Lifestyle

    Mitchell’s guest this evening is a young man whose story was one of two told in the film Oil & Water, David Poritz, about the devastation of large swaths of the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest, right in the middle of Indian tribal lands inhabited by the indigenous people for generations.  The film was featured on Progressive Film Hour on March 3, on which Mitchell interviewed one of the filmmakers, Francine Strickwerda and the other young man whose story was told in the film, Hugo Lucitante.


    Both controversial and with impassioned, environmentalist emotions set aside, today’s guest, David Poritz, is creating a novel and really desperately needed protection of indigenously-populated lands through the ranking/rating system of safety and what need to be eco-sensitive practices by the oil industry, just as we have fair-trade certification for coffee, diamonds and other commodities often originating in the highly-exploited “Global South”.


    Oil and Water will be the featured film for the matinee showing at the Paradigm Shifts Music and Film Festival on Sunday, March 29 at 3pm. For more information and tickets, go to: http://abetterworld.tv/a-music-and-film-festival-march-19-29/
