On a personal note, last year was my first atempt at being part of this event. I brrowed a 10x10 display tent from a friend, rented a U-Haul bc my husband's jeep wasn't enough space, and with loads of help from my husband I was able to get everything there and displayed. I went overboard- my paintings are huge, and the tent was small, but it was a nice day and my designated spot was at the bottom of a hill in front of a house, so I displayed my paintings up the hill so they could be seen from across the road as you went by. There were no conservative restrictions, so I was able to display ALL my paintings- nudes and all! We finished setting up early, then realized we forgot breakfast. When the cart across the road opened, we got crappy bad-for-us food. I was able to walk around and see everyone else's art, and even bought myself a necklace from the lady in the tent next to mine. (I love shiny things!) It was wonderful- and this is where I met Peter- until I got very, very sick. I had an intestinal blockage, and was trying to go to the porta-potty repeatedly, sweating a cold sweat, cramping miserably, dizzy etc. Sometimes I would have to wait in line at the porta-potty, and couldn't hold myself up. I was so dizzy and in pain I had a hard time finding my way back to my tent. Apparently I was very pale, and nearly passed out afte reach wave of cramps. Someone found a nurse, who called 911 and had me taken to the hospital in an ambulance. Since they had closed the road off for the event, this was a horrible spectacle. I was at the hospital for three days- and somehow my husband was able to pack all my paintings back up and return the U-haul.
Despite this, I am going to try again this year!! I am going to have one tent for Fowler High School students (my daily life is as their high school teacher) and one tent I will share with the other two high school teachers for our personal art. Not sure how that will work, as my paintings are so large, but maybe we will get a hill again! And of course, I wouldn't be on this site at all if I hadn't been there that morning last year!
