National and International Art Fairs

For those interested in collecting art, art fairs are an excellent place to begin one's art education. One can see a wide range of works in a short period of time. While some fairs focus on a specific type of artwork, such as photography, prints, or contemporary art, others present a broader range. The artwork is usually of good quality, as usually only the top galleries and dealers can afford the high cost of participating in an art fair. In addition, art fair organizers will sometimes selectively invite artists.

If possible, attend art fair opening night previews. This is where you'll find the best selection and have the first opportunity to purchase artwork before the fair opens to the general public. Opening nights are frequently gala events, supporting one or more nonprofit art organizations. They're usually very enjoyable, you can buy art, socialize with the art community, and have a good time.

The best way to find galleries and art fairs around the United States is to use this website. Try an Internet search for "New York Galleries" or "Los Angeles Galleries" and you'll find us listed at or near the top of the search results. The same is true for Art Fairs, try searching for "2017 Art Fairs." Or, just get familiar with our top navigation, where you'll find links to thousands of art related sites and information. We feature gallery guides for the major art cities, as well as every state, and much more.
