ArtSpot and SPECTRUM Miami Art Fairs Significant Sales and Attendance Successes

  

MIAMI - (December 19, 2013) Significant sales and a attendance successes from ArtSpot and SPECTRUM Miami International Art Fairs announced today Redwood Media Group, parent company of Artexpo, SPECTRUM Art Fairs, DECOR Expo and Art Business News, and ArtSpot's founder and director, Aldo Castillo. 

Both art fairs side by side took place from December 4- 8 in the heart of Wynwood main Miami's art district. The fairs received a crowd of more than 4,200 guests on its opening night and more than 26,000 guests total. There was a wide array of compelling art at the show - From masters and contemporaries ranging from sculpture, video, photography, works on paper, mixed media, and more. As a result, exhibitors' sales were plentiful and collectors walked away with many exceptional artworks. 

The VIP opening preview party on Wednesday, December 4, included artists unveilings and musical entertainment from Miami's DJ What, passed hors d'oeuvres, complimentary products from VitaCoco and KIND snacks, as well as complimentary cocktails and wine from Tanduay Asian rum, Belaya Rus vodka and Repeat Wines. The evening also featured a live photo shoot with Miami City Ballet dancers by Jordan Matter, photographer and New York Times bestselling author of "Dancers Among Us."

 

 

I think that the success of both fairs ArtSpot and SPECTRUM Miami Art Fairs, is the fact that we the organizers decided to think outside of the box and concentrated only on offering what is fresh in the art world, as well as what was missing from the Art Basel Miami Week. Said Aldo Castillo, ArtSpot International Art Fair Director and Founder.

Given the current world market fluctuations and ever expanding nature of the Art Fair business, Aldo Castillo is offering a focused platform where galleries, artists, and the supporters of the arts are joined and showcased in a trustworthy environment.  Art fairs are selected on their forward thought, innovation and inspiration as well as harboring a deep appreciation for art, where art is respected, researched, collected and profitable. ArtSpot 2013 replicates a model introduced to the Miami art community last year, presenting carefully selected modern, contemporary and cutting-edge galleries with strong curatorial programs and their represented artists. It is aimed at offering the best quality art to the Miami art community and worldwide collectors during Art Basel Week. SPECTRUM Miami is a juried collection of contemporary art that showcases works from mid-career artists and established galleries from around the world. The show, which caters to high-end collectors, buyers and art enthusiasts and was created to offer gallery owners, designers, architects and collectors extraordinary works by innovative, established artists.

 

ArtSpot will be returning to Miami next year during Art Week Miami from December 4-7, 2014 (Preview Party slated for Dec. 3).
