Kudos from Diane Allison

Amdur has been instrumental in getting me started and I really appreciate the webinars and feedback. Thank you for all you do, especially for the individual help which has been part of my journey since I started glass back in 2019. The Chicago shows I was part of in 2020 were the first art shows I had ever done and you made the process easy.
Thank you,
Diane Allison

I turned 77 today.

Thought I would write a great blog.

This is going to be one of my last four blogs.

I am retiring from blogging after 10 years doing it.

Will you miss me?

This is an Amy Amdur show held on Labor Day weekend in a great location.

The Third Ward is right downtown. Full of happening retail and bars and restaurants. Lots of young people everywhere.

My best bud, Jim Wilbat--outstanding glass artist-- has done the show for about three years. So I tried it for the first time.

A welcome addition to my show schedule.

We were able to park in a lot and dolly right to our booths.

Friday setup with weekend show.

Held on street pavement, plenty of storage space behind.

The Amdur team are pros, everything flowed smoothly.

We actually had nippy weather both days, I was in a long sleeve pullover both days.
Small shows, well under 130 artists.

Noticed I said artists, not vendors. Enough said.

Lots of well dressed patrons, and they spent money on art, what a concept.

Saturday was a Lowend day, barely did $1.5 K. Mostly prints out of the bins.

Sunday was different. Sold lots of framed work. Saw lots of others float by my booth.

People were very engaged. Got asked lots of questions about my work, how refreshing.

The show is a winner, will gladly do it again.

Hello Amy Amdur and Team,
I just wanted to take a minute to say how blown away I was with your team and event this past weekend. To say it was an honor would be an understatement. The level of professionalism and kindness while putting together an AMAZING show that I could be a part of gives me chills!
The whole Amdur team was stellar with communication, clear direction and support throughout the entire weekend. I am so very proud to have worked with all of you and especially for all the advice and guidance for this first time artist!
From the Bottom of my heart, Thank you very very much!
I am excited to take the expert advise given to me by Amy and put it to good use so that I can present and sell even better next year! I look forward to many more shows with you and thank you again for all your hard work, energy and time! You should all be very very proud!!
