– 2019 Exhibitor
The Three County Fairgrounds is set against rolling hills by the majestic Connecticut River, and is easily accessible via I-91 and the Massachusetts Turnpike. The show is completely under cover and takes place entirely indoors in three identical new buildings connected by covered walkways. All indoor spaces are carpeted, with a mixture of natural and artificial light. The new show entrance is in a central location with equal access to all buildings.
A limited number of outdoor spaces are available for those artists showing large-scale sculpture. The Sculpture Promenade provides exhibiting artists with a beautiful setting for landscape-oriented pieces. Outdoor areas also provide additional placement for sculpture installations, greenery, and a convenient resting area for attendees.
This was probably my best show to date. I appreciate your professionalism, how well advertised the events are and how you take care of the artisans.
