    I want an autograph! And it better be as flourish-filled as Mackenzie’s.


    Sounds like I missed a lot of fun. I was doing yardwork when I could have been in Melrose?

    Is the event mostly a local thing?
    Did you get a feel for how many attendees came from out of town?
    How many artists presented works and how much space did you get?

    OK.. as the Car Talk guys say, send me a request for an autograph on the back of a crisp $20 bill 🙂

    There were 40 artists; about 1/2 of them live in Melrose, the rest are from the surrounding communities, like myself. I obviously didn’t ask all the people who stopped to talk, but I think to a person everybody I did ask said they lived in Melrose.

    The display spaces were well done. Everybody had 10 linear feet of 6-foot high panels to hang work on. I also brought a folding table with a wood display stand. Overall, it was enough for me to show about 25 small pieces at any time.
