Aspen, Colorado (July 27 - July 29, 2018) – Art Aspen, held at the Aspen Ice Garden each Summer, features approximately 30 of the country’s most esteemed art galleries, showcasing pieces from 1950 – present. This year’s participating galleries include MARC STRAUS GALLERY, Heller Gallery, Nancy Hoffman Gallery, Timothy Yarger Fine Art, Sicardi Gallery, Unix Gallery, and Zieher Smith among many others. This boutique-style fair is nestled against Ajax Mountain, which provides the ideal environment for collectors, art patrons, and VIPs to mingle and experience this dynamic marketplace of important art.
Artsy is the Official Online Partner of Art Aspen. Through a dedicated microsite, Artsy offers exclusive previews of the fair, highlighting event updates, programming, artists, and artworks by exhibiting galleries to its global following of dedicated art collectors and enthusiasts.
This year’s Art Aspen fair will also have the SELECTS program to carefully highlight pieces chosen by noted curators, designers, and critics, offering Art Aspen patrons and collectors a new way of navigating through the extraordinary artwork at the show. Specific works have been chosen by tastemakers, such as designer Suzanne Lovell, collector Sarah Arison, and critic James Yood as pieces they are anticipating to see most at this year’s fair. SELECTS also gives attendees and collectors the ability find “selected” pieces with comments noted by prominent influencers.
