On Thursday November 11th I will be helping 240 artists move into the cruise terminal, while an incredibly busy time I gives me a preview of the art that will be on display during the show. Also, the artists talk about their work while they are setting up, offering insights into why they work in a particular medium. This is what makes the show so special --getting to meet and talk to the people who create these amazing works of art. When I purchase gifts or something for my self it has more meaning because I have met the artist and appreciate the inspiration behind the art work.
