PALM SPRINGS, CA.- The Hamptons Expo Group announces the return of the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair, February 15-17, 2013, at the Palm Springs Convention Center. An encore to its extremely successful first year event, the fair features more than fifty top international art galleries exhibiting and selling more than 2,000 carefully-culled works of post-war and contemporary art. With a St. Valentine's Opening Preview Party to benefit the Palm Springs Art Museum from 6 - 9 pm on February 14, 2013, and an entire Presidents Day Weekend program packed with special events, the 2nd annual Palm Springs Fine Art Fair promises to solidify its place as a stop on the winter art fair circuit.

Rick Friedman, President of the Hamptons Expo Group says of the fair's inaugural year, "The fair's presentation of high quality art from prestigious galleries, coupled with world-class production standards created quite a buzz in the desert. We generated a robust turnout of nearly 10,000 people, consisting of the wealthy and sophisticated gated community set, art loving snowbirds, the culturally active gay community and the general public. With art sales in the millions, this winter desert resort proved to be the ideal location for a boutique fine art fair. We established it as a fun and well-deserved stop on the international art fair circuit...And there really is no better place to be in America in mid-February!"

Taking place during the holidays of Valentine's Day and Presidents Day weekend during the same time as Palm Springs Modernism Week - a week of cultural events that sees the region's population swell to 800,000 - the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair is uniquely situated as a winter epicenter of art. Located just two hours east of Los Angeles, the city is a warm winter cultural oasis, boasting the highly regarded Palm Springs Art Museum, a thriving scene of more than 20 art galleries, not to mention some of the nation's most treasured Modernist architectural gems. Peter Marcelle, Director of the Gerald Peters Gallery, and show advisor says, "With the Palm Springs Art Museum nearby, this gives us an opportunity to gain exposure and show important works to an enthusiastic art savvy community comprised of affluent collectors and art lovers from throughout the West Coast and Canada."

More than 50 national and international galleries will be exhibiting at the 2013 Palm Springs Fine Art Fair, under the auspices of an advisory board of Peter Marcelle, Director of the Gerald Peters Gallery, James Carona, Owner of Heather James Fine Art, and Leisa Austin, Owner of Imago Galleries. The exhibitor list will be released in early 2013.
