Review of 2023
After every arts event I do for #Cafdgg I ask the exhibitors for their review of the event, and to be as outspoken as they feel able.
There is a measure of trust, as some artists may feel if they are critical then they will not be invited back to exhibit at #Cafdgg, however in all cases I am thankful for their comments as I view them as a learning point for me – I don’t know the experience of exhibiting with us, I only know what it is like to curate the event – two very different processes!
It is my hope that each year #Cafdgg is easier for every exhibitor to attend, where they can relax knowing that all they need to get into the Town Hall is ready with helping hands, setting up their displays is simple with hooks. loops. perlons, table, chair and backing display board ready and waiting for them and to enjoy the process of exhibiting with us.
The reviews were welcome and pleased that so many artists sold well, booked places on their workshops, took on commissions and leads from the fair.
The applications are open from January 5th 2024
It was a joy to be able to support new artists and returning artists from nine years of events, all part of the #Cafdgg community.
