Sweet Caitlin, would you please Amy two things, first, of all the director pep talks I've ever heard, hers this year was the most moving!! thank her, and the breakfast was quite fine too !! Second, of all the shows I've done in the greater Chicago area, 2019 Port Clinton surpassed them all!! 40%more than last year!!!!!!! Thank you all!!!!!!!

Artist Roger Mathews
Port Clinton Art Festival

I wanted to say hello and thank you and the rest of the Amdur team for organizing a wonderful show last weekend. Amdur shows are always well organized, but handling a show that size is a challenge. And the extra space between the booths was fantastic!!

Terri Hickey
Joan Michlin & Port Clinton

Thanks for a stellar Port Clinton !
The stars - and weather -aligned for a great show, with many long term Collectors and new folks .
Love the new layout . It seemed to create more continuity and a great flow.
Just wanted to take a moment and thank ALL of you at Team Amdur for being the most professional in the Biz!
Good luck with the remainder of your 2019 Events !

Joan Michlin
Jayne Colwill
Thanks from Artist!

I just wanted to thank you & Amy once again for the boot camps which helped me prepare so well for Glencoe. Plus, Glencoe was by far the best organized fair I’ve done to date.

Good Morning, I want to thank you and your staff for how professional and courteous they were. Amy is a gem and I loved working with this group.

Thank You Art Fest Boot Camp!

My name is Edie Kasten and I attended Saturday's "Boot Camp" and just loved it.
(I have the hand knitting business) I learned SO much and you really helped me figure out a path for what I want to do!
The event was fun and filled with so much interesting information.
I will apply for some shows... I hope what I do will fit.
But no matter, I learned things that will be valuable for life in general!

Thank You from Heather Hambrecht!

The Deer Park Art Show is a sweet little gem for the Amdur season...with an intimate number of artists & a nice flow of art patrons..the clientele attending the show are genuinely supporting the artists & interacting amidst the festivities...with an incredibly easy load-in & load out, this show makes for a lovely weekend.

Thank You for the Deer Park Art Show

It's (Deer Park Town Center) a great location centered around a gazebo Garden, and has all the organization of other Amdur shows but is smaller and has a more laid-back feel. Super easy unloading and packing up and excellent and helpful staff as always. Located in the Mall Complex customers already know where to go and go there often even if they didn't know about the show. Thanks for everything again Caitlin.

Thank You from Camille Carr about Deer Park Art Show

The Deer Park art show is a perfect and peaceful collection of artists and shoppers. The space is beautiful and broad, not cramped and crazy. And the shoppers come out to find stuff! They all seem to be looking for something to surprise them, something they haven’t seen before. And they find it! I really love the customer there. They seem genuinely excited to be there and see all the fabulous art....not just on their way somewhere else. So, the combination of the space itself and the customers really looking for treasures is so fun. And of course Amy and her crew make it such a pleasure from your load in to load out and every minute in between! Oh! And this was my very first Amdur show!! It’s still my favorite one! The vibe is just so calm and stress free and before you know it you’ve sold half your inventory! love it!

Thank you so much for letting me participate in the youth section in your art fairs last summer. I have grow a lot since then. Now I sell my jewelry at Amita health’s two gift shops and am working on a website. I am who I am now because you gave me the amazing opportunity of being in an art fair. Thank you so much. I hope to be able to participate again next summer.
