Hotel Fair

Each year, for several years now, there is an event at the 7th International Encaustic Conference in Provincetown called the Hotel Fair. The idea behind the Fair is that the artists who attend the three-day conference can share their own art by exhibiting from their hotel room.  These exhibits are impromptu, informal, often cleverly designed, and immediate. The artists show recent work, trade business cards, share techniques, and arrange for sales.  For the first session, one-half of the group gets to host and the other half visits. In the second session, the visitors become the hosts. It's a delightful way to meet other artists and see what everyone else is doing in their studio.

Here are pictures from the 2013 Hotel Fair. I couldn't get to every room (and didn't get every artist's name), so can't show you every artist's display, but I'll share what I did get to photograph:
