|Inside Grand Palais for the Art Paris Art Fair|
Imagine me walking around with my mouth open soaking in everything!
I was at the Art Paris Art Fair for 4 hours yesterday and didn't even get to see everything! (I had to leave because the bakeries were closing and I needed a baguette for dinner!)
I stopped to talk to many art dealers that were exhibiting textile work. What insightful conversations!

I learned so much about specific international textile artists and about consumer behaviour towards textile medium.

plastic bags, plastic ties.
I got a chance to promote some of the Canadian textile artists who in my opinion do spectacular work.

There are some that say it is better to be in your own corner to be able to design/ create how you want and not be influenced by the same things that are influencing others in your field (article from B of F) and I agree but right now I am finding it exhilarating to be surrounded by art of all mediums in the great City of Light.
I will be posting more about textile artists I discovered at this event.
