Now in it’s 13th year, the L.A. Art Show, presented by the Fine Art Dealers Association (FADA), returns to the Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport. The show commences with an exclusive opening night gala on Wednesday, January 23rd followed by four days of satellite events surrounding some of the world’s finest art available for purchase. With more than 125 exhibitors from destinations around the globe, this highly anticipated event marks the first time that the IFPDA’s Los Angeles Fine Print Fair will join the exhibition, further expanding the scope of artwork on display.
The L.A. Art Show is one of the country’s most prestigious art expositions featuring a striking array of artwork spanning cutting-edge contemporary to works from some of history’s finest artists. The show’s outstanding reputation is based upon a continued commitment to present only the best and the highest quality of work. The strength and variety of the show’s scope reflects a carefully selected group of galleries with all works vetted for authenticity by authorities in the fields of art. Vetting is made possible by sponsorship from FADA.
The Opening Night Gala is an event anticipated and attended by international art connoisseurs, prominent art figures and celebrities. The Honorable Antonio R. Villaraigosa, Mayor, City of Los Angeles, will serve as this year’s Honorary Gala Chair. The evening will be catered by some of Los Angeles’ most acclaimed restaurants. All proceeds of the Opening Night Gala will benefit the Art Museum Council and the Prints and Drawing Council of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).
“The Fine Art Dealers Association is proud to celebrate the 13th anniversary of The L.A. Art Show. The exhibition has gained tremendous momentum with record-setting attendance and sales,” says Howard Rehs, President of the Fine Arts Dealers Association (FADA). “The public is really responding to the expanded focus of the show and the variety and quality of the art. The show and the arts and culture scene in Southern California has really come into its own.”
