Art Fair anticipation
(Continued from Page 4)
MsY CAILCULATING eye will quickly scan the macrame-infested
scene and speediy 0zoom in on my true passion-jasper stone.
Ruitmor has it that jasper is ranpitnt at the Art Fair. The good
staff no less, in acceptable settings and all, of course, for a reason-
able sum. I am told I will find a truly exquisite piece, yet I have
my doahts. Last summer, the entire state of Arizona could not sat-
isfy my need for jasper, how can Ann Arbor possibly satisfy me?
Skepticism is beginning to settle in. I am tormented. These
people are trusted friends and asociates. Why would they lie? I'm
not a kid, I've been around, I can take the truth!
Besides, I know for a fact you can't have your jasper and park
your car too,
But wouldn't it be nice?

Sizing up the competition
This artist diverts his attention away from the crowds for a moment to scrutinize the paintings in
the stall next door.
Small Press Book Fair opens

"This is because of the nature
of their work. It's not new, or in-
ventive in the sense they're
starting a new movement."
Hermanson claims that her
artists usuallys sell most of the
60 or 70 paintings they display
at the Fair.
"When they do sell a work,
they are so pleased," she said.
"They show it in different ways.

Some just sit there s mith a sile
on their face. Some are com-
pletely exhuberant."
Htermanson says that ili re-
tirees have a problems ah
poor self concept. They i i
put high prices on thei rin
because they don't think hio ie
worth it.

By rewriting the vander's li-
cense, the Council virtually eli-
minated the nuisance of poach-

Poachers had in the past bur-
dened running crews, security
persons, the police department
and surely the fair's patrons
with extreme overcrowding.
"South U and Church used to
be so crowded by poachers that
we couldn't make' garbage
runs," recalled Horne. "The
worst was that fire lanes were

"Working on the crests is not
a money-making proposition,"
Horne explained. "The pay is
low, the hours are long, but it's
fun work.
"Everyone is congenial and
cooperative. Our crews are lar-
ger now, and the work is well
organized." Barring unforeseen
circumstances - like unusually
bad weather - "the work is
never backbreaking."
Horne and the crews lighten
their load by operating a lemon-
ade stand in front of the Campus
Theatre on South U.
"The stand is non-profit, of
course," added Horne's friend
