some nice work as well. Plus, a bagel from Essa Bagel in
I also was sent that ArtExpo link by someone else, and
wondered about the difference in the two shows.
I would just like to go to something like this, and see how the
language is for digital printing. And to see how the prices seem
to compare to silver prints. And to see if there's an
"embarrassment factor" by showing inkjet/digital. In that
highbrow world, I think you could learn a lot in one place.It also
would be interesting to exactly what type of work actually SELLS.

From original Picasso prints to Grandma's doilies
glued on colored matt board.
Booths are rented by galleries, print distributors
(publishers) and individual artists and craftsman.
The show sells to the public but
is designed for "the trade" which
in this case is "frameshops and print galleries"
I went 2 years ago and there were
a few iris prints, and a few photo displays...
and lots of "commerical" high art.
Think: craft fair goes to the big city
in search of a new identity.
There will be something there thats nice
besides all the other...
