From the website:
“The international art fair circuit is the most glamorous part of the art world today – the place where collectors and purveyors of fine contemporary art come from around the world to meet and do business. A rising star in this constellation of sophisticated events is ART Santa Fe, a biennial art fair that will be presented July 12-15 at Santa Fe’s El Museo de Cultural. ART Santa Fe is known as a “boutique” fair. Big enough to be interesting, small enough to be intimate and digestible, the fair offers visitors a highly selective overview of the contemporary art market. Visitors to ART Santa Fe have found it to be a gem among art fairs. The 2007 lineup of exhibitors will include galleries from Asia, a strong contingent of Europeans, an exciting array of work by Latin American artists, and outstanding galleries from the United States. Exhibiting galleries range from edgy to established. Cutting edge media groups return with a fresh matrix of interactive installations.
The glittering set of special events surrounding ART Santa Fe 2007 includes the fair’s Vernissage, an opening gala. Museum groups from all over the country attend the fair, enjoying tours of private collections and artist studios as well as the fair’s exhibitions and special events. The city’s own museums, such as SITE Santa Fe, the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, feature exhibitions; other arts organizations such as the renowned Santa Fe Opera, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, and the Santa Fe Art Institute, also offer programming on this, arguably the most important weekend in the city’s high cultural and social season.
ART Santa Fe has attracted wide attention in the press, including The New York Times, The New Yorker, the major art trade magazines (The Art Newspaper, ARTnews, Art & Auction, and Art & Antiques, among others) and virtual blanket coverage in statewide press. Word of the fair’s success has spread by the international art community grapevine.
ART Santa Fe’s focus is on presenting a carefully selected collection of contemporary and modern art, from contemporary masters to the cutting edge, for an audience of art professionals, collectors, museum groups and the general public. Visitors to the fair have praised the quality and wide reach of the offerings, presented in an accessible format that allows an intimate, unhurried viewing experience.
