SAN DIEGO (January 19, 2016) – Artexpo New York, the annual juried art show taking place at Pier 94 in the heart of New York City, will run from Thursday, April 14 to Sunday, April 17, 2016. As part of Redwood Media Group, Artexpo New York hosts hundreds of art publishers, gallery owners, and artists from around the globe. This year’s show will host more than 400 exhibitors, showcasing original prints, paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography, ceramics, giclee, lithographs, glass works, and more. Artexpo 2016 will include three shows under one roof: Artexpo New York, the world’s largest fine art trade show; [SOLO], highlighting established and emerging independent artists; and [FOTO SOLO], featuring fine art photography from some of the world’s finest abstract, contemporary, and realist photographers.

“For 38 years and counting, Artexpo has been changing the way people buy and sell art,” said Eric Smith, president and CEO of Redwood Media Group. “Each year, thousands of art aficionados and industry insiders flock to Artexpo New York in search of the art and artists that will shape trends in galleries worldwide.”

Hosting more than 28,000 avid art enthusiasts, Artexpo New York is the largest international gathering of qualified trade buyers—including gallery owners and managers, art dealers, interior designers, architects, corporate art buyers, and art and framing retailers—giving hundreds of established and emerging artists the opportunity to get in front of the right people. Attendees will get the chance to browse thousands of innovative new works of art and enjoy education seminars, cocktail parties, live entertainment, and other special events. Artexpo also features the Topics & Trends Education Program—four days of complimentary seminars and conference classes offering expert perspectives on subjects ranging from art and the economy, small business management, and art marketing to social media for artists, design and decor trends, and more.

[SOLO] offers established and emerging independent artists the opportunity to showcase their work on an international stage. Over the decades, [SOLO] has become the ultimate venue for independent artists
to be discovered—not only by gallery owners and art publishers, but also by collectors and enthusiasts in search of exciting new works.

Artexpo New York 2016 will include a new event, [FOTO SOLO], which offers a focus on photography. Echoing [SOLO]’s philosophy of supporting career opportunities of independent artists and partnered with industry experts Digital Photo Pro and Outdoor Photographer, [FOTO SOLO] 2016 will be an introduction to the official launch of [FOTO SOLO] in 2017 as part of the 40th anniversary celebration of Artexpo New York.
