Palm Springs Fine Art Fair, Palm Springs, California

Once the playground of movie stars, captains of industry and world leaders, the region has evolved into a respected art oasis in the Southern California desert with a vibrant cultural scene devoted to the visual arts. Palm Springs is home to the Palm Springs Art Museum, PSFAF’s Opening Night Beneficiary, which has a fast-growing 5,000+ membership, a vibrant art gallery scene with 20+ galleries and a remarkably strong base of art patrons and collectors, many of whom are the PSFAF Host Committee.

The Palm Springs Fine Art Fair was held at the Palm Springs Convention Center from February 12, 2015 to February 15, 2015. The fair coincided with Modernism Week, which celebrated the Palm Spring's contribution to architecture and design. The fair was the perfect mixture of both fine art and contemporary art with galleries from all over the world as well as galleries located nearby. There were works for every taste and preference. Here are some of the highlights of the fair. Enjoy.
