For those interested in collecting art, art fairs are an excellent place to begin one's education. At these often huge events held in intriguing venues, 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 work is usually of very good quality, as generally only top galleries and dealers can afford the cost of participating. In addition, art fair organizers work hard to entice the most renowned galleries in their category to participate; they will also sometimes selectively invite artists.

For first dibs on fine art (as well as over-the-top people watching), 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 non-profit art organizations. While they're usually very enjoyable, opening nights are not always the best for contemplating art, given the crowds and buzzing atmosphere. Just the same, they offer a great chance to meet artists, socialize with the art community, and have a good time.

For the past 26 years, we've been providing art and gallery guides. Why? Because art galleries, art museums, non-profit art organizations, and artists are important. Even though we've been around for years your support is also important. If you've listed in the past, thank you, please renew. If you've never officially listed with us please do so today. Listing information is in "About Us" located in the top navigation. Thanks in advance, your support is much appreciated.
