I spent the last two years in the Main Show which is a four day event. This year I displayed my work in the Showcase that's about four hours long and held on one night. I still managed to sell a couple prints and paintings in that time period. I also sang and jammed the last couple years in the Illuxcon Jam but decided to not take part in it this year. I regret not playing but it took a little pressure off my shoulders. I'm definitely going to make up for it next year. Having so much extra time allowed me to attend more lectures, painting demos and gave me more conversation time with all of the exhibiting artists. I'm sad that it was the last year in Altoona, PA. for the entire event but excited that I've been accepted to display my art in the Weekend Salon which will take place in Allentown, PA. The Weekend Salon will be an addition to the Main Show and the Showcase in 2013.
