Post-War and Contemporary Art

February 17 – 19, 2012

Press Release

Joseph Bellows Gallery is pleased to announce its participation in the inaugural Palm Springs Fine Art Fair. Featuring more than fifty top international art galleries exhibiting more than 2,000 carefully-culled works of post-war and contemporary art, the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair appeals to the sophisticated collector and casual fan alike. Punctuated by an Opening Preview Party on February 16, 2012, as well as an exquisite program of special events and exhibitions throughout the run of the show, the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair is a President's Day weekend retreat for art lovers near and far.

Palm Springs has long been a hidden gem of post-war art and culture. Located in the American Southwest’s stunning Sonoran Desert, just two hours east of Los Angeles, Palm Springs is a warm winter cultural oasis, boasting the highly regarded Palm Springs Art Museum, a thriving scene of more than 60 art galleries, and some of the nation’s most treasured Modernist architectural gems. The local art patrons and collectors are very well-informed, and the location of the fair is ideal, as it sits squarely between the Southwest’s major metropolitan regions—L.A., San Diego, Phoenix, and Las Vegas. With Palm Spring’s beautiful sunny weather and an international airport just minutes away, the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair presents the ideal winter getaway for art lovers the world over.
