Fact or Fiction?

February 25, 2016  |  Fact  |  Share

I want to divert for a moment and ask instead, Fact or Fiction? I am preparing to go to Phoenix for the upcoming Heard Museum Guild Fair and Indian Market on March 5. This year the Fair is hosting many Native children at their relatives’ booths. This is often delightful, being able to spot real talent early on! But I am becoming concerned about young artists who haven’t paid their dues, as we would say, charging much higher prices than warranted. True, materials costs are high, but pricing art work too high when you’re young can discourage prospective buyers and supporters.
