We spent the better part of last week focused on Long Island Photo Gallery. We kicked off a new season of photography networking with our annual meeting on September 22, 2010. Great turn out and great ideas. (See previous post)
Then we bought a booth and displayed our fine art at the West Islip Craft Fair. A huge fair, filled with great vendors, food and music. Long Island Photo Gallery was one of the great vendors. Right up there with the pickle vendor!
Those that passed by were drawn into our ‘gallery’ to view our newest medium, the Gallery Wrapped Canvas printed by member Rich Lombardi. We sold a lot of matted prints and we believe that the amount of cards and literature that we gave out will carry over to sales off the website.
We also believe that we could see our membership grow as a result of being at the fair. Numerous photography buffs stopped in to chat. We met so many really nice people.
Thanks to Mike Stein and his daughter Danica (who wanted a plate of bacon for breakfast) who came out to help us set up and sell. Mike sold 3 pieces! Congrats Mike! Also thanks to some of our members that stopped in to say hello. Kim Pace with her boys and Mom. Joe Cubiotti with his good friend Derek. Mark Stumpf with his son, daughter and parents. Great to see you all!
