Art Investing Reaches a 10-Year High Attracting an International Market to Palm Springs
A growing interest in art as an investment adds to the international interest in art collecting as galleries from South Korea, Belgium, France and the U.K. join top U.S. galleries at the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair, February 13-16, 2014.
Rick Friedman of HEG, which produces five Fine Art fairs including PSFAF, sees the global interest growing, “At each of our shows, there is a core local market, but the international investors are coming to the U.S. shows to buy and invest.” The art on display in the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair is valued at more than $100 million dollars, and millions in Fine Art is sold during the four-day event says Friedman.
Along with top U.S. galleries such as Jane Kahan Fine Art and Throckmorton Art Gallery, international peers artcompany Misoosidae (South Korea), Cynthia Corbett Gallery (U.K.), Frederic Got Gallery (France) and Vogelsang Gallery (Belgium) are among the galleries exhibiting at this year’s Palm Springs Fine Art Fair.
