Local Indialantic Fine Crafter: Clinton & Arlene Underwood

Standard

This weekend, American Craft Endeavors is proud to have Clinton & Arlene Underwood in the 13th Annual Indialantic Craft Festival! Clinton & Arlene Underwood are local in the area! So, make sure you stop by and support the local artists!

Here is some information about this duo:

A native of Colfax, Iowa, Clinton has also lived in California and Colorado before settling in Indialantic, Florida, with his wife Arlene and two young daughters. With his passion for surfing and love for creative design came the creation of the Bombwatcher Surfboard Chair. Each surfboard style chair is hand crafted from Western Red Cedar with White Oak, hardwoo stringers and a White Oak Fin. The chairs are complimented by Bamboo drink holders which are designed to be staked into the sand or soil. 

What started out as a two piece version of the chair became a labor of love to design one that would fold from the shape of a chair into the shape of a surfboard. It is with great excitement that Clinton is proud to introduce the world’s first FOLD TO FLAT Bombwatcher Surfboard Chairs. Clinton & Arlene’s company, Surf Life Designs, was recently founded in June of 2011.

Slides, Photos Or Digital?

Standard

Slides, photos, or digital (Zapplication)… which do you prefer? There are many events that only have one way of applying, which is through Zapplication.org. Lucky for you, Howard Alan Events allows you to apply using photos/slides (via snail mail) or Zapplication.

Many artists are not ready to make the switch into the digital world, which is why we have an option for everyone.

For those of you who haven’t started using Zapplication, yet, here are some great features:

(1) It’s relatively easy to set-up an account.

(2) Once an image is uploaded, it’s archived.

(3) You can check-out criteria for other shows.

(4) It allows you to find shows that you most likely never knew about before.

If you would like to set-up a Zapplication account, click HERE.

If you still like to apply using slides and/or pictures, you can find applications on our website HERE.

Attention Hyde Park Artists! First of all, we are excited to have you as an exhibitor in our 21st Annual Hyde Park Village Art Fair in Tampa, Florida on October 30th & 31st. We look forward to seeing you next weekend.

We wanted to write this blog to share with you (& any other Tampa area artists) a great advertising/marketing tool we found.

The online Tampa Tribune has a section where artists can post their name, contact information, type of artwork & where they will be exhibiting in the Tampa area. You can let all your present and future customers know that you will be attending the Hyde Park Village Art Fair. What a fabulous promoting tool! The best part about it is that it’s FREE!
