    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.

     The power of Art / Art as a weapon

    Sol is a artist with a vision, therefore he is a visual artist. He prides himself as being one that pushes the envelope as it pertains to the traditional sense of what a artist should or should not be. He pushes the envelope on what a artist should or should not do as well. Under the fold of the EyEcOnOgRaPhY movement Sol specializes in creative imagery, mixed media art, collages, street photography, graffiti art, and custom portrait framed artwork with a twist. At the very core of his work is the ability to enhance and recapture the moving parts, the pulse, the heartbeat of vintage antique images. Family images, loved ones, lost ones, not necessarily the "celebrity" but the EyEcOnS of your own lineage. To find greatness one only has to travel as far as that old worn family photo album located in the closet, basement, or garage collecting dust. We are all EyEcOnS for we are all direct descendants of EyEcOnS. With that being the case, BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY! Join Us as we welcome special guest Sol Ra El Bey to our radio show as he expounds on why and how art is a weapon. Call in at 323-870-3897 or login at www.blogtalkradio.com/usot

    Whitney Rose Live

    in Military

    Join us this week as we welcome Vintage Country Pop music singer songwriter, Whitney Rose. Hailing from Charlottetown,PE.CA., Whitney stormed onto the Toronto singer-songwriter scene in 2011 and has endeared herself to just about everyone with her powerful voice, immense personal charm, and throwback style influenced by Patsy Cline, Kitty Wells and, gender-be-damned, the likes of Tom T. Hall and George Jones. Whitney Rose is in the throes of album-birth with her sophomore effort “Heartbreaker of the Year.” The record was released in Canada on April 21st through Cameron House Records to much acclaim, and Rose has been busy supporting it with constant touring across the country. The album will be released in the United States and rest of world late August 2015 through Redeye Worldwide. "Heartbreaker Of The Year" was mixed at Capitol Records by Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Keith Richards, Rod Stewart). Rose describes her music as 'vintage-pop-infused-neo-traditional-country,' usually with a chuckle, and admits "The record is a little weird, it's a little quirky, but so am I. I went out and made a record that was true to me, not one with its singular purpose being its viability on country music radio.” Whitney may be young, but don’t let that fool you. There’s an ancient appeal to her. "Heartbreaker Of The Year" is available Now worldwide at all better digital outlets. We will talk to Whitney about her upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at her music, feature her latest songs, and ask her to share her message for the troops. Please be sure to visit Whitney Rose at http://whitneyrosemusic.com/ and spread the word. As always we will give shout outs to our deployed military listeners. Be sure to join us, Sunday 10/11/2015 at 4 PM EDT! Our message to the troops: WE do what we do, because YOU do what you do.
