Just before Christmas, I participated in my first Art Market of New Orleans. Previously I had just visited. As a way of testing the waters for my dot art, I went in with three other artists under the New Orleans Art Association tent. Being with a group appealed to me more than having a whole tent to myself. We could take turns watching each other's art when we needed to go get food or use the port-o-let. The tent is on a corner of the park that makes for easy access. It is also close to the port-o-lets.
