Coronado Art Walk hosts artists with very high quality work. Courtnay McGowan is the coordinator and did a beautiful job of taking care of us. There was a refreshment booth for artists and volunteers to give breaks, and help with loading and unloading booths.
I was honored to be named one of the "Featured Artists" at this show. There were a handful of us. The other honors came from people attending the show and fellow artists who complimented my work with such words as "museum quality, stunning and unique work, beautiful use of color, and never seen anything like it!" How encouraging for someone who is really isolated in the studio much of the time. Most of the time it is my own opinion I must rely on. Such feedback is so good for an artist.
Thanks to everyone who came by to visit, shop and give me advice about booth set up.
|Day One. My booth tent was low and closed in on three sides.|
|Day Two. Nice flow through set up and a great view!|
|Looking through my booth. A very sunny day.|

Three of my dear girlfriends made it possible to set up and tear down this 10' X 10' booth. Shirley, whom I have known since the 4th grade came to my aid on Friday evening. We set up the tent, grids and tables. Then Sunday, Carmen and Rose showed up to pack it all up and load the car. I couldn't have done it without you. My gratitude is great. It is really hard work.
I hope to participate in Coronado Art Walk again next year. The only change I would make is to have easier display walls. The grids are really heavy and I had fifteen of them! I have designs rolling around in my head for a lighter and much more efficient set up.
