Art Fairs?


The Toronto Star preview article and the Globe and Mail preview article.

Mr. Goddard writes some feel good, short fluff, where he writes that 'last year some 800 artworks were sold at the fair' as if this was a good thing.

As was pointed out to me by the finer folk from Canadian Art Group.com in Mr. Enright's article ther eis a nice quote from Marc Mayer
'For his part, Mayer sees TIAF as attracting two different art worlds: "There's the decorator market for the less sophisticated crowd and then the investment market for the more sophisticated crowd." Both kinds of collectors come to TIAF, though they rarely find themselves in the same booths buying from the same galleries.
Although to my mind Mr. Mayer is being very kind.
