ART Santa Fe 2011

In 2011 Art Santa Fe celebrated its eleventh successful year. Exhibitors and visitors from across the U.S. and around the world enjoyed the comfort and convenience provided by the new Santa Fe Convention Center in the heart of downtown Santa Fe. The champagne-tinged, high-stakes world of the international art fair once again provided heady, glamorous fare for serious collectors and scene-seekers alike. Art Santa Fe oferred an all-encompassing experience that included a high class mix of excellent contemporary galleries from all over the globe, cutting-edge art installations, and emerging artists and dealers. Inside Art Santa Fe, viewers explored the best of the art world. Art Santa Feís style offered a perfect balance of breadth and intimacy, allowing visitors to speak with dealers and artists while experiencing a full range of art in a comprehensible context. Unlike other art fairs, the experience didnít stop outside the doors. A series of events, planned in conjunction with ART Santa Fe, included our gala opening night Vernissage, and the prestigious Art Santa Fe Presents sell-out lecture, this year featuring Pulitzer prize winning author, Lawrence Weschler. Art Santa Fe 2011 offered exhibitors and visitors the opportunity to enjoy the most beautiful time of year in a unique and interesting city, a city that Conde Nast Traveler magazineís 2009 Readerís Choice Awards named as the third best U.S. city to visit. Santa Feís rich cultural mix included performances at the award-winning open-air theater of the Santa Fe Opera, with sunset and stars forming part of the backdrop; and the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival. Numerous outdoor activities took advantage of our ideal climate and allowed visitors to enjoy the famed beauty of the New Mexico landscape. Watch for information here on the upcoming Art Santa Fe 2012 international art fair.
