Princeton Art Bazaar 2023 Recap

Hello, world. This is Ella (Genevieve’s cat). Genevieve was so busy preparing for and tidying up after the art fair that I thought I’d help by writing about it for her.

It was more than a year since her last fair, so she decided to test everything again. One day all the furniture began to move, and my whole upstairs changed.

Where are my chairs? What’s this net for? Yummy fishies?

Since my chairs are gone, I’ll lie on this. (Art portfolio.)

Oh, she hangs pictures on the fishnet. She was very happy to discover she can fold up the tent and store it in its bag with the net still attached. She can save set-up time in the future!

Yay, I found some of my chairs. One side is just as good as the other.

Is this table sturdy enough? I’ll test it.

Seems okay. I’ll check the other side.

It’s good! I apply the stretchy seal of approval.

Genevieve kept putting all this stuff on the floor & moving it around. I guess to figure out how it should look.

After coming up with the setup, she put the tables away, but she still wasn’t done. She had to figure out spring cleaning clearance pricing and groupings. We looked at lots of pictures together.

The beach? I think you’ll sell that one. (She did.)

The shoe? Maybe you shouldn’t bring that. (She didn’t.)

An open bin! Is it big enough? Did you pack everything? Can I fit?

She did not let me go outside while she packed the car, so she’ll take over writing the post now.

Thank you, Ella. As you can see, art fairs always take a lot of time to prepare, but gratefully everything carried off without a hitch. What’s more, I have settled on a booth layout that I like and will keep, so I don’t have to repeat the furniture and tent escapades.

The bazaar went very well. The weather was beautiful (especially after a week of rain), there was a good turn-out, and I am satisfied on the sales front. I’m pleased to have sold 3 somewhat larger paintings and several smaller items (and to have a little bit more storage space). More important than the sales, though, are the good conversations I had with people who perused my booth, even if they didn’t buy anything. It is interesting and fulfilling to hear what people find meaningful and special about the artwork.

Princeton Art Bazaar 2023

I am pleased to announce I will have a booth at Princeton Art Bazaar the first weekend in May. The community event is Saturday, May 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Paul Robeson Place, by the Arts Council of Princeton’s building and the back of the public library. The rain date is Sunday, May 7 (same hours). Entry is free.

About 80 artists, craftsmen, and vendors from the area will have work and goods on display. A humble selection of my artwork and cards, including Pandagrams, will be available. The Arts Council does not allow books at the bazaar, so Racing Pajamas and Cartage will not be offered at this sale, but you can always contact me separately about them any time.

If you are in town, please stop by, say hi, and have a look.

This weekend, The Leaves, a Christian Science nursing facility in Texas, is hosting a virtual meet-and-greet with the artists prior to the art auction on October 2 & 3. (I am curious how much of it will be interactive; we artists recorded short videos to keep things from running too long.) Registration for the Zoom event this Saturday is required; sign up here. Visit to learn more about the events and to see the artwork.

Sunday, September 12, 11 am–4 pm, Seminary Ave., Hopewell, NJ

In two weeks, I will have a booth at Handmade Hopewell, a little local arts & crafts fair in a charming New Jersey town. The fair went digital in the spring of 2020 and is back to being outdoors this year.

On October 2 & 3, 2021, The Leaves, a Christian Science nursing facility in Texas, will have an art auction in conjunction with its annual meeting. Two of my paintings will be available for bidding in this online fundraiser.

Also, last week, I finished adding music links to Art Walk 2. Some new/bonus content is interspersed. If you’re interested, go back and have a listen. Quick links:
