Save the Date for the 13th annual Art Palm Beach, a dynamic event in America’s premier winter destination, hosting leading international galleries in modern and contemporary art, photography, fine art glass, video and design.

As the economy continues its resurgence, Art Palm Beach offers collectors superlative artwork by the classic modern masters. Among the exceptional offerings are Helen Frankenthaler’s “The Fourth” (1985), “Blue Door” (1994) and “Core” (1965) by Robert Rauschenberg, the kinetic master Julio Le Parc’s 1962 installation “Continuel-Lumière Cylindre,” the fair’s signature image, Tom Wesselmann’s “Still Life with Liz” (1993), and a rare 1982 “Surrounded Islands” original 5’ x 7’ drawing and collage by Christo and Jeanne-Claude of the wrapped islands project in Miami. Collectors will also be able to add major works to their collections by Warhol, Calder, Picasso, Stella, Haring, Margritte, Moore, Rive rs and Vasarely.

The fair offers novice and seasoned collectors a vast selection of contemporary art as well, by Jamie Baldridge, Charles Arnoldi, Bo Bartlett, Chuck Close, Jean Dubuffet, Damien Hirst, David Hockney, Julian Opie, Ed Ruscha, Graciela Sacco, Tomas Sanchez, Frank Stella, Donald Sultan, and Wayne Theibaud.

Art Palm Beach’s tradition of exhibiting top photographers has expanded this year as the market for photography grows and auction prices rise to new heights. Vintage works by Ansel Adams, Richard Avedon, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Alfred Eisenstaedt can be viewed next to Dutch master Hendrik Kerstens, whose works were just exhibited at New York’s Chelsea Museum. Angelo Musco’s installation “Lactis,” a sensation at this year’s Venice Biennale will be on display, as will works by Dianne Blell, Aperture Foundation’s exhibit of Sylvio Wolf, Joel Meyerowitz and Michal Chelbin, and a special exhibition by Bruce Weber, photographer of the fashion icons of this generation, Calvin Klein, Versace and Ralph Lauren.

Fine sculptures abound at Art Palm Beach. Lynn Chadwick’s “Maquette I Jubilee III” is one of numerous pieces on display, with further contributions by Viola Frey, Michael Lucero, Jaume Plensa, Soto and Bernar Venet. Distinctive fine glass work is also evident throughout, including “Rayton” by William Morris, Dale Chihuly’s “GildedEmerald Sealife Putti with Blowfish,” “Silken” by Dan Dailey, and Lino Tagliapietra’s “Dinosaur” and “Mandara.”

Art Palm Beach will explore the latest trends in international art through the “Going Global” theme, exhibiting artwork by contemporary and emerging artists from Asia, the Middle East and Europe. A number of distinguished curators and experts in the art world join the program as well, presenting a series of vibrant lectures throughout the fair’s 6 day run. The fair offers collectors, museum curators and trustees, art advisors, an enlightening lecture series, and VIP events. The Preview Party on January 14th honors the Young Collectors of the Norton and the Four Arts Contemporaries.

This year to further benefit the community, Art Palm Beach is pleased to participate in the spirit of cultural philanthropy in the Palm Beaches that has empowered and inspired thousands. In this spirit, the fair has adopted the “Art Palm Beach Shares” program for 2010 and will donate all admission proceeds and a portion of food and beverage proceeds to a different local cultural organization each day.

As our special guest, the ticket below provides you and a guest complimentary admission to the fair during regular show hours.

We look forward to seeing you for this memorable week of fine art, cultural events and museum exhibitions in the beautiful Palm Beaches.
