The LA Art Show, the largest and most successful platform for contemporary and traditional art in the West, will celebrate its 20th anniversary at the upcoming January 2015 edition.
See Kathy’s Huffington Post article about the LA Art Show.
Taking place at the world-class Los Angeles Convention Center, the show will build upon the success of the 2014 event, which closed with attendance topping 50,000 and participating galleries reporting sales into the millions.

Sparking global art trends, The LA Art Show has become a stomping ground for established artists, and launching pad for emerging talent showcasing what’s now and next in art. The LA Art Show was the first art fair to feature an exhibition of graffiti and street art, launching an international trend that catapulted the genre into the fine art world. The 2015 LA Art Show will showcase ground-breaking special exhibits by top curators, guided show tours, mixers, and the return of Dialogs LA, the LA Art Show lecture series that features discussions with art experts and top trendsetters.

Emraced by critics from leading arts publications and news outlets including the Los Angeles Times, Juxtapoz, Hi-Fructose, KCET, KPCC, Art Daily, NBC Los Angeles, The Huffington Post, Fine Art Connoisseur, The Art Newspaper and others, the LA Art Show has been praised for its innovative ‘fair-within-a-fair’ model. Taking a cue from the public art museum model, where there has long been a trend of juxtaposing contemporary art alongside older works to show movements and highlight the evolution of art through the ages, the LA Art Show provides collectors with a complete art experience through an expansive breadth of galleries that crosses contemporary, historic and print genres.
The Los Angeles Art Show kicks-off with an Opening Night Premiere Party attended by more than 7,000 collectors, VIPs, and celebrities. The 2014 attendees included: Barbra Streisand, James Brolin, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jerry Bruckheimer, Henry Winkler, Patricia Arquette, Lauren Graham, Loni Anderson, Shepard Fairey, Mayor Eric Garcetti, Lily Collins, Michelle Monaghan, Debra Wilson, Princess Anita Theodora of Orange-Nassau, Gabrielle, Duchess of Schoeneberg, Councilmember Tom LaBonge, Hill Harper, Robert LaSardo, Domingo Zapata, Bria Murphy, Willem van Gogh (grand-nephew of Vincent van Gogh), James DuMont, Alex Lombard, Sue Wong, Consul General for the U.A.E. Abdulla Ali Saboosi, Toni Garrn, and more.
The LA Art Show is unique in the art world. The LA Art Show’s distinctive ‘fair-within-a-fair,’ features two sections in the 180,000 square foot exhibit hall: A Modern & Contemporary Section and Historic & Traditional Contemporary Section. Each section is carefully honed to meet the needs of serious collectors and allows galleries the opportunity to connect with like-minded art enthusiasts.
