What a summer it has been! I am so happy that I have been able to visit with so many people at the art shows this summer. One of my favorite things about doing these shows is the fact that I have an opportunity to talk photography and art with all you knowledgeable people. It is very exciting for me.
I am also glad that people are responding to the two new photo sizes I am offering this year: 4×6 prints matted or matted & framed to 8×10, and the big 16×24 prints matted & framed (only) to 24×32. Of course, my traditional sizes are still available as well.
Coming off of two very strong shows in Evanston and St. Joseph (MI), I am excited to continue the run at one of my favorite shows, the Geneva Arts Festival. This will be my fourth summer in Geneva, and I hope to see many of you who attended every year.
Here, then, are the specifics for this weekend:
The Geneva Arts Festival
July 24 & 25, 2010
On Third Street
10 am – 5:00 pm
Geneva, a chic and charming historic town located on the Fox River, will celebrate its ninth Annual Fine Arts Fair in 2010. Its prestigious reputation of offering a superb selection of fine art by renowned artists and cutting-edge newcomers attracts beginning and avid collectors.
Presented by the Chamber of Commerce, the show is tucked along shady streets among 100+ specialty shops located in Victorian-style homes and century-old buildings. A “hands on” kids art area, awards for emerging and seasoned artists along with warm small-town hospitality, offer a picture-postcard setting for this juried art celebration.
Of course, as always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at John@CarusoPhoto.com. And don’t forget that I am once again participating in the Capture My Chicago project. This project seeks out the best photographs made in, around, and about Chicago. The photos are voted on by the Capture My Chicago on-line community, with the best images published in a beautiful coffee table book. I was fortunate to have several images published last year, and I would be proud to be included again this year.

I look forward to seeing you very soon!
