Fine Art Shows

The White Tent

The Jury is In

All of the fine art/fine craft shows I participate in with my textile art are juried. That means I need to submit photos of my work and my booth and wait for acceptance to be in the event. The reason for all this is to ensure the artwork shown at the event is actually made by the artist, who must be present. In addition, there are frequently more applicants than there are spaces allotted to artists. So, the jury sometimes has to make decisions on who to include and who is not included. Sometimes, we are put on a waiting list.

If you wish to contact me regarding an art show event, the best way is to email Or, you may leave a message at my studio via phone: 863-874-4316. 

My “category” may be fiber art or mixed media. 

Following is a list of shows where my art will be exhibited and offered for sale. 

I add shows in order by date with the last ones at the top, going in backwards order.


Fine Art & Fine Craft Shows for Fall 2019 & 2020

I have not yet applied to fall 2019 and 2020 shows.
Tentatively, I can report that I plan one art show for November 2019.
This is when I enjoy presenting all my new art and get feedback.
That feedback helps me decide what to work on in December.

I am trying to decide which winter shows to apply to: one in January, two in February, two in March (Leesburg is likely).
I want to participate in one show on the Atlantic coast north of Daytona and one over by the Gulf, maybe Sarasota.
And, maybe I should look into an art show up in north Florida.

If it looks like I am doing fewer shows next year, you would be correct.

2016 and prior

Getting started was a learning process. Beginning in 2015 as I participated in local exhibits I learned that not all art shows are alike and to be selective in where to exhibit my particular brand of creativity. Humorously, I learned to avoid art exhibits as a feature of a music venue with wine tasting, car show, craft show or flea market.  I have done all these.
