Seattle Art Fair was founded by Paul G. Allen as a unique and innovative art experience showcasing the vibrant culture and diversity of the Pacific Northwest. In addition to being a destination for new and established collectors and international art patrons, the fair shines a light on Seattle’s thriving art scene. Now in its second year, the fair features local, regional, and international art galleries presenting top-tier modern and contemporary art.
Seattle Art Fair, presented by AIG, shares exhibitor highlights, along with specific times of performances in its Projects and Talks program for its second edition, running August 4-7 at CenturyLink Field Event Center. The Seattle Art Fair 2016, co-produced by Paul G. Allen’s Vulcan Inc. and Art Market Productions, will feature over 80 exhibitors. The fair will kick off with the Beneficiary Preview, proceeds benefitting the Seattle Art Museum (SAM), on Thursday, August 4 at 5:30pm, followed by the official Opening Night Preview starting at 8:30pm. The fair continues August 5-7, with a diverse schedule of projects, talks, and events happening both on and off site.
“The second edition of the Seattle Art Fair will see some of the most important artists in the world, represented by the most highly regarded galleries working today,” said Max Fishko, Seattle Art Fair director and managing partner of Art Market Productions. “We are excited to mount an exhibition as unique, diverse, and beautiful as the city itself.”
The Seattle Art Fair has established itself as a boutique fair where collectors can acquire some of the best art in the world in an intimate setting, and is an essential destination on the art world calendar. The 2016 fair will include some of the most prestigious galleries worldwide, from such cities as Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, Paris, Cologne, Seoul, Buenos Aires, Tokyo, and beyond.
