Eldis Rodriguez Baez
I was born in Cuba, where I spent my childhood, my youth, and part of my adult life. Before my recent move to the USA to live and work, I was in Chile for almost a decade. Being away from my country and its people has filled me with emotions I never knew of before. Painting has been an escape back to my memories, a way of bringing the colors of Havana back to life in my heart and imagination.
As the snow continues to fall and the temperatures drop outside, what a great time to work on your art & crafts! Spring and summer will be here before you know it, and so will the shows. We encourage you to check our 2014 Show Schedule, get your applications in and your spaces reserved! To help our vendors with their planning, we’ve come up with a handy, download-able Show Pricing Menu that lists all of our shows and the cost for each.
Once again this year, Northcoast is offering workshops for the new and experienced exhibitor. Part I will help you determine the correct shows to choose, whether through Northcoast or another promoter; indoor/outdoor shows, preparation, licensing and pricing. Part II covers the importance of the right display for your work, marketing, signage and Selling 101. The first session of 2014 is already underway; to get more information and to download an application, visit our Grow Your Business page.
Thanks in advance to all our returning artists and crafters. You are the life blood of our business – your success is our success!
