"Basically the idea is," says producer Dirk Miller, "to have an art and music show that is 'for the artist.' There will be a chef cooking food, artfully, and passing out cards. Similarly, Wine Country will be having artistic tastings. A minumum % will be charged to visual artists for their sales to keep the show running. A dozen musical acts will perform and push merch, while we take 0% of their sales. Artists are encouraged to try and get deals going, somehow."
It is a networking opportunity for formal as well as snaky artists. Miller says "It also focuses on the artists being in charge of their own show. We don't tell them where to put things or how to make it look, or even suggest a price."
"Last time we did the show we were on Morning Edition with Adam Giblin and we were on the cover of the "Preview" section of the Shreveport Times. We had over 300 people there and the show was a great success. We hope to get much more attention this time." Miller may still be open to proposals. See below, please.
