Boston International Fine Art Show
The 12th Annual Boston International Fine Art Show takes place Thursday - Sunday, November 13-16, 2008 at The Cyclorama at The Boston Center for The Arts.
Following the unprecedented success of last year's show, co-producers Tony Fusco and Robert Four are anticipating yet another outstanding event. Returning to the show this year is an ensemble of prestigious galleries from the United States and Europe including Spanierman Gallery, Vose Galleries, Arcadia Fine Arts, Birnam Wood Galleries, Cooley Gallery, Gladwell & Company, Heinley Fine Arts, Martha Richardson Fine Art, Avery Galleries, Newman Galleries, Questroyal Fine Art, Principle Gallery, Blue Heron Fine Art, McClees Galleries, David Hall Fine Art, Tree's Place Gallery and others.
The only show of its kind in New England, Boston International Fine Art Show features 40 galleries from the United States, Europe and Canada, with no restrictions on the type of work that may be shown. The Gala Preview, bolstered by the show's esteemed Honorary Committee, has blossomed in to one of Boston's premier social events. Gala attendees enjoy fine food, delicious wine, festive music and the first choice of an impressive array of fine art.
A series of informative lectures and programs attracted droves of enthusiastic art-lovers to the 2007 show. In response to the accumulating interest in guest speaker programs, the show's producers have already begun planning an exciting lineup for 2008. Gracing the podium last year were such savvy art aficionados as Joshua Rose, Editor of American Art Collector; Peter Trippi, Editor of Fine Art Connoisseur; Peter Tysver and Greg Bishop of Boston's oldest art restoration firm, Oliver Brothers; and art insurance experts David Genser of Genser Insurance
and Stephen Wood of AXA Art Insurance Corporation. Also returning on Friday evening November 14 is the popular "New Collectors Night", which gives both seasoned and novice art admirers the opportunity to benefit from the professional insights of some of the art world's most knowledgeable personalities.
The Cyclorama provides the ideal venue for this exciting show. A large circular rotunda and adjacent salons encourage visitors to both linger and wander. The historic structure is located in the heart of the BCA complex, which boasts four theatres, a gallery, Boston Ballet school, 50 artist studios and other facilities. There are more than a dozen "hot" restaurants and night-spots within a five-minute walk, making it a focal point for cultural life in the city.
"The show has grown up with the evolution of the Boston Center for the Arts, the art market in Boston and the changing demographics of the South End, Back Bay, Downtown and other neighborhoods of Boston," comments co-producer Tony Fusco. "We couldn't be more pleased to be launching our 12th year."
