Bring a portfolio of prints to share. Networking is a big deal
and we’ve tried to add a bit more time for it this year. There is also
the Five-prints-in five–minutes which is ever popular. Madeline will be
handling the stop watch and gong again this year. The old convention
center is no, more so we are in El Museo, the Spanish cultural center and the
digs are not bad, but not that good either, but then it’s the show, not
the barn that counts. Next time we’ll be in the brand new convention
center. The art and photography scene in Santa Fe is growing every year. Because
of PhotoArts more of the mainstream art galleries are showing photography –
and loving it.
Yes lots of water and watch the booze. We are at 7000 feet and
you get a lot more kick for your money in booze. You can get real stupid real
fast if you are not careful. And diabetics on insulin need to watch it as the
altitude can wreak havoc with your blood sugar. We had an incident one year
that eventually turned out ok, but it was scary for a while.

Speaking of APIS, this is my first year to attend and I am
wondering what sort of preparations I should make and what should I bring with
I already know about the print exchange for which I need a wrapped and matted
image and have a water bottle to carry with me.
Any other suggestions?
