The networking thing is kind of fun! It seems this year I need to work even harder on creating this kind of connection. Several of the art fairs in Pittsburgh seem to work through crafting and artists guilds. This is a great idea, promoting one another. But it's a little tough as I haven't worked with any of these groups yet. We live, we work, we learn...
If you're looking for small events to attend- The Heritage market at the Pumphouse in the Waterfront complex in Homestead is happening again on June 26th. We'll be there, outside and hopefully this will be a recurring event through the summer. I'm excited to have a regular spot in Pittsburgh to meet people and show my art.
Classes are a great opportunity to meet new people. My new friend AR also has a shop on Artfire- Satorious Designs! The other people in my class are also to be seen at art events all over Pittsburgh.
