For those of you that either aren't already familiar with or don't live in or near Birmingham, AL, Birmingham Art Crawl is a monthly event that occurs on the first Thursday of every month. Artist line 2nd Ave. N. (and beyond) from 5 pm - 9 pm, all the while restaurants/bars are open with specials. I have been participating in Birmingham Art Crawl every month since March of this year and let me tell you...one of the most rewarding opportunities. I'm not just talking about people purchasing some of my art. I'm talking about meeting new people (art lovers and art vendors) and feeling like part of a community.
While all the prep work, setting up, and packing up is exhausting, it's also a lot of fun. I highly suggest those of you that are looking for a casual venue to sell your art to look into Birmingham Art Crawl:
