         Not sure if they were aware of the program – but some
          children bought things.
         Mostly adults wanted to purchase from CAPP.
         Not many people knew about it                                         We are actively promoting it.
         Sold $40                                                              Good!

This year we had 68 artists open early for the Patron Early Preview. (9-10AM Saturday only)
Did you have Patrons spend gift certificates at your booth?                                                          YES 24      NO 78
This year we had over $3,000 pledged by Patrons. Do you have suggestions for growing Patron support?

         Is $3,000 really enough money to open early?                          Hopefully it will be more next year, we are trying hard to ‘grow’ it.
         I really didn’t have any/many early shoppers, and no patrons
         Try to get local businesses – if they pledge of X dollars, they
          get their logo like a sponsor.
         List of artists accepted mailed to them prior to event, viewable      This is a good idea; we do have artists listed on our web site.
          art online prior, and offer go-cart transit for early shoppers if
          they only want a specific artist.
         Work with another charity (heart, cancer, etc)
         It’s a good program                                                   Thank you.
          Good if first year but could be $20,000! Watch for my                 Can’t wait!!!

          I only met 2 judges
          Loved the quality control – Thanks!
          Last two judges at 5:55. It was rushed and hard to cover so
          many artists (a couple people a said similar things)
          All judges stopped by
          I think they should ask questions                                     They are encouraged to do so if they don’t understand the work esp.
          Only 3 jurors introduced themselves
          Only saw/met 2 judges, talked to only 1
          Too many judges


          Jurors should feel free to give constructive criticism to artist if
          not busy with costumers.
          10 foot reproduction rule: not fair!! How does this apply to          We are using a suggested standard “A Fair & Reasonable Reproduction
          photographers? Painters do try to stock booth with originals,         Policy”.
          but when they are sold, reproductions are all that is left to sell.
          If labeled clearly what is wrong? Not everyone can afford
          originals, especially in today’s economy.
          Nice to meet the judges.
          One problem is the # of digital artist – it’s truly just
          photography (no matter how they present it) computerized. It

                                                                                                                                                        2

           makes it difficult to compete for true artists with original
           work. They can put it on a canvas or any other “presentation”
           but it is really just mass produced on a digital printer.
           More disclosure on who judges are and their qualifications.         I would be glad to do this. Will try to secure them to list on application.
           It was our first time here, and we would have liked to hear         Your score will be included in your after jury letter.
           how we did.
           I think the jurying has improved since the last time we did the     Thank you
           show (3 years ago).
           I liked that they introduced themselves & talked to us
           Although last 2 judges had to hurry due to time constraints
           Not every juror said hello- some looked harried
           A couple of jurors really didn’t even stop, plus one sticker was
           not on our sign
           Maybe have half the jurors judge each half of the categories to     I would like to do this, it takes more time to find the best judge for the

           have knowledge of.
           A comment about categories – possibly benchmark with how            The reason is 2 fold: Having some of the categories divided, i.e. clay
           Cherry Creek, St Louis, Plaza Kansas City, Lakefront,               gives artists a better chance to be accepted, more options than one

           because some of yours seem odd. Most of these top shows I           receive the $100 prize. However, this is not written in stone and would
           listed A) have fewer total categories and B) combine clay as        be a good question to ask artists their preference.
           one group instead of separating functional and non-functional.
           I think it’s OK to want your show to offer a good mix of both
           but you can ask that in your application and just list “clay” in
           your program.
We used Zapplication for the 2nd time this year. We are very pleased with the overall process.
Did this new system work well for you?                                                                              YES 46       NO 2

          It was helpful, but computer access is limited during summer
           due to travel from art fair to art fair.
          Could be condensed.                                                 Yes, we will continue to do better with this.
          Try not to overload our mail boxes, we get correspondence           Good to know, thanks!
           from over 20 shows
          Please do not send tons of emails as some shows are doing
Do you have any names of possible experienced and qualified jurors for 2010? Prospective jurors are interviewed, and they are paid an
honorarium. (We use the same judges for both the digital judging and the on-site jurying when possible).
Note: They need to live within driving distance of the St. Joseph area. Naming a person without contact information is insufficient.

           This was my first time at this show, but I was extremely                    Thank you, we work really hard on this.
            impressed with all the community support and marketing, and
            all the amazing staff and volunteers.
           You should allow more reproductions in today’s economy                      See above
           More than expected/as expected- But less than last year
           As expected- based on last year
           More than expected- $4000. Used to be what I expected, I
            didn’t expect it in this economy. It is mainly due to one large
            painting that sold for $2600. The rest of my sales were small
            matted originals.
           Less than expected- there was a tremendous amount of people.
            The marketing seems to be great; I think the economy affected
            the customers.
           Just a little less

          Have preview party night just for patrons.                           We invited the patron club participates this year to artist reception.
          Loved your billboard near Chicago! Hand-out in rest area/State       Thanks! We do have all our marketing materials at the Mi Welcome
           welcome Center, State College. (PA does that)                        Center in New Buffalo on I-94.
          The publicity seems to be very good. Other than expensive TV
           advertising in Chicago I can’t think of any
          Ask exhibitors to share the names of their 2009 customer to add      This would be great!
           to your mailing list.
          Smaller, high-quality show and no corporate sponsors                 This is the Krasl’s largest fundraiser, so we need sponsors!
          Billboards, preview party for patrons and select artists (Fort
           Meyers does this)
          Downtown banners (2 comments)
          Team up with local NPR/PBS and turn Friday night into a
           benefit dinner/gala
          I think as St. Joseph revitalizes its tourism with the park, the     We hope this happens.
           show will grow also. Marketing the park will also bring
           awareness to St. Joseph.


Booth Space
We continue to make adjustments to spaces in the park in response to a changing park landscape such as:
    This year we added a new space (#46) which changed all the numbers till #94.
    The city added 5 new maritime markers to the landscape.
    We do our best to give you the space that you request.
Did your space work well for you?                                                                               YES 91             NO 5
If your space did not work well please let us know why & what booth # so that we can address the problem. What, if any, changes would you
suggest for next year?

          It was moved away from the bluff – last years spot where I lost      You are welcome.
           so many pots to a nice protected spot that worked so well.
           Thank you!
          On cement worked well for us. The cannon pad was                     We know, this is something we can’t control.
           troublesome with children (unattended) climbers.
          Saw some that “tilt” too much for most booths – maybe
           sculptures would be better there
          #68 – booth had light pole – It worked, but needed to move           Corrected this for next year.
           1 foot into sidewalk, and no back shade/awning.
          #82 – I like the location but it sloped – these spaces are hard      We know they are a challenge, but we need the booth space.
           for artists with shelves and pedestals.
          It is great to have extra space between booths
          I asked for shade and drive-up, which I got, but I didn’t think to   Sorry about that! Have to use the spaces too.
                                                                                                                                                         5

        ask for a level area.
       Okay, but really sloped and patrons kept tripping on exposed       Would like to know which # as have tried to avoid exposed roots.
        tree roots.
       Not enough traffic on the far end of show (1 and 2)                We do our best to invite patrons to the very end.
       #18 – love my space                                                Great!
       #172 – because I was tucked back from the sidewalk, it             We have looked at this before & have tried to ensure a good traffic
        seemed as if a lot of people stayed on the sidewalk and            flow.
        didn’t venture back to these booths
       Nice tree. Thanks for keeping the spaces nice & large!
Parking
We are in our 4th year of a color coded parking system. Did the color coded parking lot work for you?      YES 90              NO 1

Do you have any comments or suggestions for next year?

       Wonderfully close
       Being able to park nearby is highly helpful to artists
                                                                           Not sure what is meant here, as unloading/loading Lake Blvd is open.
       Drop off at both ends of the festival and pick up as well
                                                                           Thanks..

       Show not my best for sales, but a keeper because of ease of set
        up, big booth, all artist amenities
       It makes a HUGE difference to have closest parking –
        especially because I am alone
                                                                           Thanks is our plan.
       Please do not shuttle artist to far away from parking – please
        keep parking the same as is now
                                                                           I am very sorry to hear this. This is not the case, artists are allowed to
       We were told (very rudely) by a volunteer on Sat. 6:20PM           do this after the show closes. I will make sure this info gets
        that we were not allowed to pull our vehicle on to Lake Blvd. to   communicated to volunteers. This will not happen again!
        load up expensive art work for the night. If this was the case,
        we would have appreciated advanced notice.

       Parking and set up was perfect. However, during the fair, my       merchants know about the shuttle.
        booth sitter’s sister visited a business that was experiencing
        their regular costumers’ dissatisfaction with get to
        appointment because of limited parking. Possible dialogue
        with business owners on shuttle availability and sharing of
        service could be an opportunity for all parties (nail salon
        had to reschedule appointments and change their normal
        business hours)
                                                                           Trailers are to park in our RV parking lot, unless that is the one vehicle
       On Friday it was difficult finding parking. Pulling a trailer      you will be using for your one spot in the parking lot.
        it was extremely difficult to get into the lot – but understand
        your space limitations
                                                                           I appreciate your concern. This is not up to us, it is from the city and it
       I witnessed severe parking waste. The authorities have gone        will not change. We met with the city for our wrap-up meeting where
        out of their way to reduce available parking rather than           this concern was approached and it is a safety issue that is written in
        increase it. This is defeating economic gain. In other venue,      stone. We will have to do the best we can with PR, etc
        streets are turned in to one-way streets to increase parking,
        not taking available parking in the name of safety. If not
        addressed, this practice will slowly but surely kill
        attendance and the event’s appeal.
                                                                           Thank you. As far as the food from our sponsor, The Bistro on the

We have a total of 3 shuttles for the public. Parking is very limited downtown, we did a survey 4 yrs. ago about shuttling artists from another
location, the majority were against that option & for the option to park as close to the Fair as possible. We are doing our best to accommodate artists
& patrons with the limited parking in our downtown area.

                                                                                                                nd
               out here. Only a few shows can see how a double booth In my 14 years, this is only the 2 time someone has complained of
               can impact artists in the surround area – generally          this issue. Of the 34, 10 were photographers, 11 in the painting,
               speaking, they are mostly photographers that benefits,       drawing/pastel. This is the second year that we made a distinction
               and painters certainly do not. Not only are they selling     for the larger size $275 (once several years ago). We do not plan to
               pseudo paintings (photos on canvas) but can press a          raise our booth fee anytime soon. We think our fees are reasonable.
               button on a printer and voila – out comes an original! I As for the other issue you raise about photographers, reproductions
               wonder how I can do that with pastel – any                   and pastels, well I don’t have an answer other than we allow
               suggestions?                                                 reproductions. I do hear your frustration and would be happy to talk
                                                                            with you further about this. Call me.
           Collette Fortin – a little buy/sell in art mix, economy (ps – We want to know about any art that you know is buy.sell.
               showing work at Signature Automotive brought in a sale,
               good ideal!)
           Great show as visual – the best this year! Whoever              Thanks, and I give the credit to my church, ‘praying Presbyterians”!
               ordered the weather, congrats!
           Thanks for taking artist input and implementing it
           My problem this year was plenty of bodies, very few
               buyers – not Krasl’s fault in this economy
           Survey is only helpful to you                                   I am sorry to hear that. We share our survey results with many
                                                                            groups.
           Need earlier availability of Coffee/Caffeine                    We do open artist hospitality 7am on Sat, due to winds, etc. we ran
                                                                            late, sorry about that!
           Please continue to allow reproductions                          We have no plans to change this policy.
           Show needs to be smaller with better jurying. Lots of           We won’t get bigger, but the KAF is the biggest fund raiser for the
               questionable work. Too much paper work and survey            Krasl Art Center. So reducing anything that brings in revenue is not
               is the same! Concentrate on smaller show, higher             likely. Our on-site sponsors are important to us, their financial
               quality. No corporate sponsors. Focus on high quality        support is crucial to our fundraising efforts. We try to do it in the
               ART and Artists will be happier with sales. This is          best way possible to not detract from the artists. We strive to have
               about art and artists – not Toyotas!                         the best juors, and highest quality art that has been juried or on the
                                                                            wait list. The survey does change, but some info we want each year.
           Only problem was some difficulty obtaining food –
               only a problem as far as sometimes having to go back
               and forth to get all food together
           Spaces are a great size
           My favorite fair with excellent staff. My one and only          Yes, we wish all our spaces were level and flat!
               problem is not having a flat booth floor.
           2 waters for 2 days?? Other shows have water brought We know that some shows do this. We think it is good that we can
               around by volunteers during the show.                        offer “free” water to all artists both days.

           Nice billboard sign on I94 – Nice image for show – lunch         Thank you.
            and dinner was delicious
           The mandatory one plate per person on Friday night is            We struggle to get the food and we still run out, that is why we have
            a little cheap – and uncomfortable for artist – one lady         this guideline. Sorry you had an uncomfortable experience, as this is
            actually blocked the door with her arm. I was only               not what we want either. We had an overzealous volunteer.
            getting my husband, not food. Perhaps a hospitality
            pep talk is in order: manners, manners, manners
           Not being able to take food out of artist room is                As stated above, this is an amenity and we have to respect our host.
            unhelpful
           I value the tradition and media of fine arts as opposed
            to mechanical and mass reproduction
           Location of booth got a low score because I fear being           We do all we can to attract the crowds to the north end. So sorry you
            so far away from downtown may have resulted in                   experienced this.
            “tired” crowds – it’s a long trek from one end to the
            other.
           This is one of the best shows in the country – our top 5!        Thanks!
           This is a well thought-out, well prepared show
           Great staff, volunteers, fun town, knowledgeable

            in a fair who’s keeping their own identity. Other fairs that

            Fair – Thank you!
