The Feria was quite an experience. It was held at the Instituto Allende. It is some big and famous Art School in San Miguel and it was full of Art – all kinds of art.
I had to have the sign translated by someone from the Translation Gang as I didn’t know what it meant at all
Inside are booths staffed by Artists.
What was amazing was the range of Artists – from jewellers, to painters, to rug weavers, to salmon and agave syrup sellers. I think selling Salmon would be a lot easier than making art. You don’t make the salmon just sell it – sort of like an art middleperson. No is going to ask you if you made the salmon but they are going to ask you if you made the art.
So I walked around a bit and found several galleries and began to fantasize about having my own show
I saw this picture the other day on one of those Art Walls all restaurants have.
They only wanted $95 and I thought that was a high price but imagine getting 50 times more in a gallery.
So I won’t be selling my paintings in a restaurant but only in a gallery but if you want to buy Art then I would suggest a restaurant.
