LA ART SHOW 2015 HISTORIC | MODERN | CONTEMPORARY

Welcome to the 20th annual LA Art Show, offering you the most diverse experience of stimulating visual art. We are excited to announce that over 120 galleries from across the nation and from 22 different countries will gather to present our 20th anniversary Show, making it truly an exceptional and unique art exhibition. Looking back on my 20 year involvement with the LA Art Show, I am proud and honored to see how the fair has evolved: changed locations, expanded its platform for galleries who represent the vanguard of fine art, and reflected the scope and trajectory of the vibrant Los Angeles art scene. The fair’s reputation—earned over the last two decades—has been manifested by showing work of the highest merit and serving as the only event to strategically incorporate galleries representing diverse art genres to broaden its audience. Enthusiasts with varying tastes from modern and contemporary to historic and traditional, as well as works on paper, sculpture, and installations, are able to see it all under one umbrella. As a perfect complement to our 20th anniversary, this year’s beneficiary is St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. Our Opening Night Premiere Party, hosted by Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo, will honor St. Jude and their lifesaving mission. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. Together, we celebrate the ability to help spread the word to our peers and drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90% in the next decade. We continuously develop new projects to strengthen the fair’s commitment to the art world. With the return of Littletopia, stimulating programming and special exhibition content, the LA Art Show offers visitors an opportunity to learn about the political and cultural impact of art, as well as experience unique installations and performances. I would like to thank our incredible host committee, sponsors, media partners, and staff for their dedication and hard work to help the fair continuously grow and thrive. With utmost gratitude, I am thankful to our exhibitors, who continue to discover talent and put their determination behind an ambitious vision. Finally, I thank our attendees, who purchase and appreciate art, and who ultimately determine the success of all our effort. Together, we have made the LA Art Show the longest running and leading art show in the western United States. Sincerely,

Kim Martindale General Manager/Partner LA Art Show
