ArtFairCalendar.com Newsletter Reaches 10,000 Subscribers

October 15, 2008

Yesterday was certainly a day for good news. Over 9000 for the Dow and ArtFairCalendar.com which reached a milestone today–10,000 subscribers to its’ newsletter! Thank you!

You have been a wonderful audience and I truly appreciate the great letters, good questions, compliments, suggestions and sometimes crabby (but always helpful) emails.

I’m so grateful that the rise of the Internet has allowed me to take my years of experience at art fairs (since l979) and turn them into a venue that allows me to share my expertise with the art fair community and stay in touch with all all of my friends.

Bringing patrons to art fairs to meet my old friends and exposing new artists to this business has been a great pleasure. Thanks to each and everyone of you!
