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!!!!!!!

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!!

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.

Kudos from Jon Juron, Wrigleyville Art Market Artist

Much thanks to you all for helping me with The Wrigleyville Art Fest!

Thank you Caitlin for extending me the invitation to participate and your help with cropping and leveling my photos and the application process.

Thank you Noel for helping me erect the tent, securing the weights and installing the Pro Panels.

Thank you Amy for your guidance on booth presentation.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!! You’re a great team and a perfect outlet for artists to show their crafts, be it Birkenstock and tee shirt artists or a suit and tie guy like me.

Thank You from Whitefish Bay!

Amy,
I wanted to thank you and your team for putting on a amazing, kick butt event. Our expectations were exceeded and we are very happy and tired, like you and your team I’m guessing.

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.
I look forward to doing this again in 2020. We did see a great number of visitors and made some new friends.

Gold Coast from Kathleen Murphy Willer

GOLD COAST was a very nice show! The attendees were qualified and art knowledgeable! I loved seeing the banners on the lampposts around Chicago. Thank you for the nice security presence too.

We had a blast and it is a perfect setting with the best skyline views you will find anywhere! A great weekend all around!
Ps: I sold 15 paintings a Gold Coast with a couple still deciding!!

Thank you and everyone else at Amdur for the Barrington show last weekend. I was so excited by the response to my jewelry, actually had my highest grossing show ever! Everyone at Amdur was so nice and helpful.
