Keith and Wanda Davenport are outdoor and wildlife photographers. For 20 years we have been selling our photography at art shows and festivals around the country. As artists, we know what makes a show an enjoyable experience for the vendors and the customers who attend -- clean, pleasant ambiance, quality products, and happy people.
We have been successfully managing the Fall Harvest Holiday Art & Craft Show since 2012. As of 2020, we are now organizing and promoting four other previously established craft shows at The Pavilion at John Knox Village. Click on "SHOWS" to learn more about each event.
