Fountain Art Fair Recap

Jason Mitchell and Adam Suerte had a blast at the Fountain Art Fair repping Urban Folk Art® Studios. They showcased their work, as well as the work of UFA® Gallery regulars KEO XMEN, Dr. REVOLT, Mark Bode, TRIKE GND, and VEEFER. It wasn't an easy set up, they didn't have chairs the whole weekend, but they managed to network, sell some work, and entertain ,friends and fans, and meet some great fellow artists.
