One of my specialties is the work of San Diego area painters and local collectors of such material often manage to find me there.
Unfortunately the show was canceled in November for not having enough dealers and it looks like the April show is in danger now as well.
We have 31 dealers at last count, we need 45 for the promoter to break even.
If we lose the next show, chances are that we never have one again. Once they are gone... This is a very sad turn of affairs. If you know a dealer that might want to show there, please let me know and I will give you Dolphin's contact info. We have lost all the shows in Los Angeles, San Francisco is hanging on.
Are people more happy sitting in their cubicle and manning their keyboard than they are having a walk around a building and checking out the wares in real life? It is very sad, brick and mortar and tangible goods are apparently so passe.
If every dealer could bring one other dealer in, the problem would be solved. Cross your fingers...
