Here I am wondering why my tent is so darned empty of customers!

    Every once in a while I do manage to get out of the studio, and bring along a few samples of my art and 'zines to art festivals and conventions around the country. Below is a list of the upcoming events I'm confirmed to appear at, with links to their sites for more information, where available. As well, if you're interested in a more historical perspective, you can click here for information on past shows, with photos and other nifty stuff.
    If you would like to receive an email notice when I will be at an event in your own neck of the woods, just go to the Contact Info and Mail List page. Note in the comment field you'd like to get an email notice of such events, and make sure to at the very least give me your name, email address , state and zip code. We'll use the state and zip code to help us know when we will be nearby, and send you an update note when we know we'll be there. You can then either come and visit in person, or will at least be warned to avoid that area should you wish!

Deep Ellum Arts Festival
September 10 - 12 / 2021
Deep Ellum Arts Festival
Dallas, TX     —    www.deepellumartsfestival.com
Juried Arts Festival
   This is one of my favorite art festivals here in Dallas, have been showing my art here since they started a couple of decades ago. I missed it a few times in past years, and of course, lots or rescheduling and delays for 2020, but we'll both be back again for 2021, though this time it's being held in the fall instead of the usual spring dates. I'll have a few new things for you to check out, as well. From their site: "Six blocks of Main Street in the Deep Ellum entertainment district will be transformed into one enormous street festival featuring, 200 top-notch juried decorative and visual artists, 100 original bands, singer/songwriters and performance artists performing from five different stages, the renowned Pet Parade, and copious food and drink. Festival attendees can stroll through displays of cutting-edge decorative arts and admire, commission, and purchase the art of sculptors, muralists, jewelers, painters, and fine artists; some of whom will be creating pieces on the spot."

FenCon XVI
September 17 - 19 / 2021
Irving, TX     —    www.fencon.org/
Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention
   FenCon is back, baby! Will have the usual artworks old and new, a selection of interesting books, and maybe even a couple more toy robots for your consideration. As usual, if that is not enough (and it should be!), they will again be bringing in a slate of writers, artists, musicians, and all kinds of creative folks as guests. Lots to do, lots to see-- and, at least at my dealer's table, lots to purchase and take home, to treasure forever!

Denton Arts & Jazz Festival
October 1 - 3 / 2021
Denton Arts & Jazz Festival
Denton, TX     —    www.dentonjazzfest.com
Juried Music and Arts Festival
   Like so many shows, they had to cancel completely in 2020. Then had to push back from the usual Spring dates, but looks like we are solid for a 2021 Denton Arts and Jazz, even if it will be in the Fall this time. I've been showing up in Denton for this celebration of music and art for over two decades now, and no intention of ever quitting. Always a great show, with multiple stages of music all around huge park, a good mix of arts and crafts, it's always just fun. Once more we'll be holding court just inside the main doorway of the Civic Center building (because I'm old now, and prefer to be indoors than outside, fighting the weather, thank you very much.) Around 160 artists and crafters offer a wide range of art and styles to pick from. Plus there's a large outdoor kids section, food everywhere, and tons of music all day and into the night. Check out their website for more information on the headliner acts they'll be bringing in!

South Street Art Festival
October 8 - 10 / 2021
South Street Art Festival
Arlington, TX     —    www.southstreetartfest.com
Juried Arts Festival
   This Arlington show is closing in on finishing off the first decade of events, and even the Coronavirus couldn't stop it! I'll be heading back to Arlington for the Sourth Street Art Festival- won't you join me? There was lots of construction in the area the last couple of years, but we think the worst of that is over and the layout and roads are opening back up. Always worth coming by to check out the artists, wander around with a glass of wine and enjoy the fall season. Tons of free parking all around the site, free admission to the event, a variety of arts to ooh and ahh over, plus music, food, wine tasting: how can you go wrong for a Fall weekend out?

Armadillocon 43
October 15 - 17, 2021
Armadillocon 43
Austin, TX     —    www.armadillocon.org
Science Fiction Convention
    Armadillocon has shifted from it's usual summer timeslot to a mid-Fall, and looks like it is fitting nicely into a slot in our surprisingly very tight show schedule. Which is great, because it has been way too long since we've seen must of these great people in person, and we can't wait to get back there. We're also still trying to find homes for lots of books that no longer fit into the new smaller place, so come on by for some book bargains as well as to add to your Foster art collection!

Pancakes & Booze Art Show logo
October 30 / 2021
Pancakes & Booze Art Show
Dallas, TX     —    www.pancakesandbooze.com/dallas
One Day Art Event
    Had such a great time doing this last summer, time to have a cooler fall edition-- kind of a pre-Halloween fest! It's a great evening of viewing art from a range of cool local Dallas artists, all in a club atmosphere of music, booze, and, of course, those free pancakes! Once again will be at the Deep Ellum Art Co, with both indoor and outdoor exchibit space, and the doors will open to the public that evening at 8:00 PM, and it will run to late-night at least 1:00 AM. Crawling the club-scene in Deep Ellum? Drop on in. This is a 21+ event, with tickets going for $7 in advance, or $10 at the door. (and free pancakes!)

Funky Finds: A Holiday Shopping Experience
November 20, 21 / 2021
Funky Finds A Holiday Shopping Experience
Ft. Worth, TX     —    funkyfinds.com/holiday.html
A Handmade Arts and Crafts Event
    After almost two years of bouncing around on dates and locations, the Holiday show settles back in for 2021! I like their slogan: "Dedicated to promoting indie artists, crafters & designers worldwide". Very different from the usual "big-painting" street festivals, I like the mix of stuff that all the exhibitors bring to this, and am pleased to be a small part of it with my own artwork. Setting up around 200 crafters and artists in two of the long Small Exhibits Building on the grounds of the Will Rogers Memorial Center. Best to check out their website for more details as they add links to the artists, and fill you in more of the free giveaways and such that will also be offered. Come on by and you are sure to find a unique Christmas gift for someone that you will know they do not already have!

Grapevine Library Holiday Art Show
December 4, 5 / 2021
Grapevine Library Holiday Art Show
Grapevine, TX     —    www.ci.grapevine.tx.us/index.aspx?NID=312
art & crafts fair
    We didn't get to do this last year, but they will start us up again for the end of 2021. And my understanding is, instead of being in one small room, the artists might be spread all aroudn the library. Cool- art among the books! This is a small, but very "cozy" show, and how many art shows do you get to attend that are not only indoors, but have carpet under your feet, too? Come out and pick up a few gifts for friends and loved ones- or drag them along with you, and show them the pieces that you want them to get for you. When you're done, browse the library, and check out a few books to enjoy over the holidays as well. It's a win-win all around!
