3rd Annual Palm Springs Fine Art Fair sets record attendance for Opening Night

Premiere Sponsors Merrill Lynch Wealth Management and Acura and other supporting sponsors helped this gathering of 55 internationally respected galleries and artists set the stage for a record year at the third annual Palm Springs Fine Art Fair. Proceeds from the evening benefited Palm Springs Art Museum.

"I heard many remark they thought the fair is unsurpassed in terms of the caliber of art on display, reputation of the galleries, and the sophisticated level of art collector in attendance," says Rick Friedman, Hamptons Expo Group Executive Director. Friedman also stated the evening represented a record opening attendance of any of the five fine art fairs he produces around the country.

Marshal Lightman, a collector who came to Palm Springs specifically for PSFAF with a group of 24 collectors from Houston agrees. "Each year the show gets better. This year the art reached a new level and the "red dots" were going up which shows collectors agree." "Red dots" refer to art that has sold in the show. Scores of sales were recorded opening night including Gerald Peters Gallery, Peter Marcelle Projects, Sandra Lee Gallery, Heather James Fine Art, Unix Fine Art and Thomas Paul Gallery.
