San Francisco Fine Art Fair

May 21– 23, 2010

Fort Mason

First Fine Art Fair of Modern and Contemporary Art

in Nearly a Decade

On May 21, 2010, the first international SF Fine Art Fair in nearly a decade will open its doors to the public for three days of art, lectures, and events. Featuring 75+ worldwide galleries, and displaying over 6000 modern and contemporary artworks

by more than 500 artists, the SF Fine Art Fair will take place May 21st - May 23rd at Fort Mason's Festival Pavilion.

Attendees to the SF Fine Art Fair will have the opportunity to view and purchase works from collections held by galleries from across the globe, in a 50,000 sq. ft. setting designed to highlight a spectacular selection of modern and contemporary paintings, works on paper, drawings, printed editions, photography, and sculpture (both indoors and outdoors) by the world's leading artists.

Notes SF Fine Art Fair Executive Director Rick Friedman, “We’re excited to launch the new SF Fine Art Fair and to create an annual event that brings together hundreds of modern and contemporary artworks from an international array of galleries. In celebration of the launch of the 2010 SF Fine Art Fair and the fantastic local support we’ve been receiving, we decided to direct a portion of the Fair's funds towards highlighting the rich culture of arts in the Bay Area. To that end, we’re hosting a fundraising event to help an internationally renowned San Francisco arts institution; honoring a local long time dedicated supporter of the arts; and providing financial support to an important local arts and technology organization for the installation of a truly magnificent entrance sculpture.”

NEW GRANT ESTABLISHED:

FOR MATURE AMERICAN PAINTERS

Provincetown, MA: Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM) is proud to announce The Lillian Orlowsky and William Freed Foundation Grant, a new source of funding for mature American painters. This marks the first year that these grants are made available to the public.

The late Lillian Orlowsky and William Freed were artists, teachers, and active members of PAAM and the Provincetown arts community for over 50 years. Lillian, in particular, was sensitive to the challenges that artists confront, especially artists working against the mainstream or outside of popular schools of art. Her desire to provide financial support to mature artists through this generous endowment gift speaks to her passionate commitment to art for art's sake and art created regardless of the demands and whims of the market place. This gift has positioned PAAM to, for the first time, be a grantee - an opportunity to financially assist artists on a national level.

"PAAM is thrilled to be a position that allows us to distribute this kind of funding to painters in need. It's hard to be an artist; the rising cost of living and the effects of the recession have hit the creative community in a major way. To be able to offset some of those expenses is truly a dream come true, "says PAAM's Executive Director, Chris McCarthy. "Additionally, we are very grateful to the Foundation executors for providing PAAM with an unprecedented opportunity."

Grants will be offered to American painters aged 45 or older who demonstrate financial need. The primary emphasis is to promote public awareness and a commitment to American art, as well as encouraging interest in artists who lack adequate recognition. Grants will range from $5,000 to $10,000. Applications are available online at www.paam.org or by calling 508.487.1750. Completed applications must be postmarked by August 16, 2010.

Provincetown Art Association and Museum's (PAAM) Lillian Orlowsky / William Freed Museum School (LOWF) serves students of all experience levels, offering year-round programming including workshops, art history lectures, scholarships, and free classes for adults and children, led by professional teaching artists. To register for a class go to www.paam.org or call 508.487.1750.

Art Reflects Nature:

FAM's response to the Gulf Coast Oil spill.

Oil Spill, #2 & 4 Lois Dicasola

Fine Art magazine FB fan page artist: abstracts and figurative post.

Art changes the way we perceive and imagine. Art is a doorway to change. Through artistic vision, cultures and societies realize their dream. Together we share the potential for creative expression. Art equals social change.” -Jamie Ellin Forbes

L/R,Maria Varga, "Our Mother Earth", "Untitled", Rusty Harden, "Abstract Minerals Known as Rhythms"

Art is a strong voice for change. Abstract and figurative works contemplating nature illustrated by artists as they work out the thematically how they are affected, inspired by the stream/ flow of nature surrounding them are posted here.

To constructively channel my outrage over the Gulf Oil spill I have requested posts from our Fine Art Magazine Face book Fans, to state through image their reflections regarding nature, as a constructive response to the Gulf Oil spill which will impact out national environment for years to come. These are their images.

How we see is by artists as they enhance nature to remind us through their vision what we find valuable, beautiful, moving and touching. Artists provide the common thread to all peoples employing the language of depiction / figurative imagery to share the metaphor connecting our thoughts. From Color Field, abstract expressionists, abstract impressionists, through realistic and figurative art image we draw the collective vision of our time.

Thank you Fine Art Magazine Fan page artists for contributing to this post.

I would like to use the Fine Art Magazine FB Fan page to keep the concept of Wild life as elegant beauty alive in art image during the crisis of the Gulf oil spill. Any one who has images Please share with us. Maybe we can pierce the indifferent attitude of the people who take for granted the beauty that naturally surrounds us in nature. I will post as many to the Fineartmagazine.com site.
