Comment by AB: Remember when we used to have art fairs? In case your memory's getting hazy, here's a look back at San Francisco's recent (though it seems like eons ago) Superfine Art Fair. The fair is without question the most eclectic assemblage of exhibitors I can recall, a mix of both artists and galleries from across the country and internationally as well. On display was a rather entertaining array of everything including paintings, works on paper, photography, sculpture, collage, mixed media, digital works, and more.
Participants as well as attendees were younger for the most part, and I got the impression that pretty much anyone who was serious about getting their art in front of the public had a chance to show. Interestingly, all they had to do to apply was provide their name, email and Instagram Handle. Booth prices were reasonable ranging from $2000 - $4000 on average.
Meanwhile back at the opening, the place was packed and I did see a smattering of red dots throughout. Prices were surprisingly reasonable-- a refreshing change of pace-- with some art priced as low as little as a few hundred dollars. A special added bonus for me was that every booth's sign included their Instagram username, something that made me very happy (no wasting time searching when posting pics on IG). I have absolutely no idea why more art fairs don't do this. I haven't heard much about how participants fared in terms of overall sales, so any exhibitor who would like to fill me in is more than welcome to do so. And now for the highlight reel...
