Art Palm Springs (formerly the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair) returns for its sixth edition at the Palm Springs Convention Center Feb. 17-19 with more than 60 galleries from around the country (and a few from abroad) exhibiting a variety of postwar and contemporary art.
At press time, fair organizers had not released the name of its annual artist honoree. Past honorees include Judy Chicago, Larry Bell, Mel Ramos, and Jennifer Bartlett. The fair will honor Donna MacMillan as Arts Patron of the Year at the Opening Night Preview Feb. 16.
“As a passionate and steadfast collector and fervent supporter of the arts and culture, Donna exempliﬁes what it means to be a star philanthropist,” says Elizabeth Armstrong, executive director of the Palm Springs Art Museum. “Her commitment to the Palm Springs Art Museum, in particular, has been one of the central ingredients in its growth and new vision.”
Fairgoers will see several familiar galleries, including Yares Art Projects and Charlotte Jackson Fine Art, both from Santa Fe, New Mexico, Gallery K.A.G.C. and Grimaldis Gallery from Maryland, Throckmorton Fine Art from New York City, and local favorites Hohmann of Palm Desert and Jorge Mendez Gallery of Palm Springs. Foreign exhibitors include The Cynthia Corbett Gallery of London and Maria Elena Kravetz Gallery from Cordoba, Argentina.
New exhibitors include William Siegal Gallery and Blue Rain Gallery from Santa Fe; Lassiter Fine Art from Birmingham, Alabama; William Havu Gallery from Denver, Colorado; and Winston Wächter Fine Art from Seattle, Washington.
