Handel and Haydn Society is the country's oldest continuously performing arts organization, founded in 1815. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Harry Christophers, the Society is widely known for its concerts at Boston's Symphony Hall, and especially well-known for its presentations of Handel's "Messiah", a Boston holiday tradition. The Society is also known for its tours, concert broadcasts on National Public Radio, and recordings. Winner of a 2002 Grammy Award, its two most recent CDs appeared simultaneously in the top ten on Billboard Magazine’s classical music chart.

The only show of its kind in New England, BIFAS features 40 galleries from the United States, Europe and Canada, with no restrictions on the type of work that may be shown.

Following the success of last year’s show, co-producers Tony Fusco and Robert Four are anticipating yet another outstanding event. Returning to the show this year are a number of prestigious galleries from the United States and Europe including (as of 6/15): Vose Galleries, Avery Galleries, Martha Richardson Fine Art, Gladwell & Company of London, Barbizon specialist Heinley Fine Arts, Marine Arts Gallery, McClees Galleries, Jason Samuel Fine Art, The Guild of Boston Artists, Joy Kant Fine Art, AddisonArtGallery, and others. The show also welcomes new exhibitors including William Vareika Fine Arts (RI), Eckert Fine Art (CT), Fraser Gallery (MD), and J.M. Stringer Gallery of Fine Art (NJ).

The Gala Preview, bolstered by the show’s Honorary Committee, has blossomed in to one of Boston’s premier social and art collecting events. The Honorary Committee includes numerous New England museum directors and curators, such as Malcolm Rogers of the MFA Boston, Thomas Lentz of the Harvard Art Museums, and James Welu of the Worcester Art Museum. An impressive roster of media sponsors includes Art & Antiques, American Art Collector, American Art Review, Antiques & Fine Art, Art New England, Boston Spirit, Design New England, Fine Art Connoisseur, and Boston's Panorama and Playbill magazines.

The Cyclorama provides the ideal venue: a large circular rotunda and adjacent salons encourage visitors to both linger and wander. The historic structure is located in the heart of the Boston Center for the Arts complex, which boasts four theatres, a gallery, Boston Ballet school, 50 artist studios and other facilities. There are more than a dozen "hot" restaurants and night-spots within a five-minute walk, making it a focal point for cultural life in the city.
