PALM SPRINGS, CA -Over the past seven years Art Palm Springs has continued to deliver a  prestigious international group of galleries and artists from around the globe. In turn, these well-known representatives of the Post War and Contemporary art eras bring an ever-growing audience of art buyers, collectors and museum curators to the Coachella Valley each winter.

Gallery participation has more than doubled since the fair debuted in 2012 as the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Art Palm Springs’ President’s Day Weekend event allows gallery staff, artists, collectors and art lovers visiting from around the world to thaw out a bit in the mild February weather.

The long-standing gallery representation brings a wide-ranging perspective. Some founding participants along with those mentioned above include Charlotte Jackson Fine Art, Jane Kahan Gallery, J. Willott Gallery, Adamar Fine Arts, HOHMANN Fine Art, Jonathan Novak Contemporary Art and Melissa Morgan Fine Art.“The reputation of any art fair depends on the quality of the representative galleries,” said Donna Davies, Vice President Art Group, Urban Expositions, which has produced the art fair for the past three years. “What is so amazing is that we have so many galleries such as Rebecca Hossack GalleryAddison Rowe Fine Art and Peter Blake Gallery that have international reputations that have continued to participate year after year, and our audience is always interested in what they have to offer.”
