Art festivals pave road to commercial success

Artist Eric Fausnacht built his business in part through the festival circuit. Today, he sells his creations through Eric & Christopher, which produces silk-screened pillows, totes, wallets and tea towels sold by 1,000 retailers nationwide. He still shows up occasionally at art fairs, however, displaying his wares in a booth like this one. | Photo courtesy of Eric Fausnacht
