ARTIST TESTIMONIALS:

*"No one in this Art show business does a better job, checking on the artist, promoting the show, making a point, that each artist is just not a number, but a member of the Amdur family." - 3D Artists John & Jin Powell

*"I wanted to say thank you to Amy and all of her staff for this great summer art fair season. I enjoyed every show and had one of my most profitable seasons yet. It is a pleasure to do shows that you know will be well advertised, well run and well attended!" - Jewelry Artist Sher Berman

*"We've grown a lot throughout this year, and we have all of you to thank for that. Amdur sets their expectations very high, and we have raised the bar for ourselves as well. We heard so many compliments from the seasoned show attendees, who see all of the other fine artists that exhibit at your shows. It's really a nice thing to hear! It is our sincere plan to apply for many more Amdur shows next year, and we hope you will remember us, and allow us to partake in yet another great season. Thank you to all of you for your amazing support. We've come to know many of you like family, and we will miss you over the cold winter." - Photographers Gail & Dale Horn

*"Hey... Thanks to all of you on the Amdur team for your professionalism, friendship and a great 2013 summer art fair season. As always, all of you contributed to what has become one of our favorite and most reliable venues in which to market our jewelry. We will look forward hopefully to seeing and working with all of you again in the 2014 season." - Jewelry Artists Harry and BJ Mackie
