Recapping Artexpo New York: The World's Largest Fine Art Trade Show Takes the Big Apple by Storm


Manhattan's Pier 92 was afloat with creative energy when the 2012 edition of Artexpo New York invaded the Big Apple. With attendance numbers swelling and a number of record sales reported from the exhibition floor, the most recent Artexpo New York--which kicked off its four-day stay on March 22nd--proved that it's a great time to be an artist.

"In eight years [of exhibiting at Artexpo] this was our best year in terms of sales," notes Eugene Korchinski, managing director of Anna Art Publishing Inc. (www.anna-art.com). "Artexpo New York is all about the trade market, which means making contacts with trade buyers such as galleries, etc. If your art is right, your retail and trade prices are right and you are willing to work hard (which, for me, is be a professional, providing galleries [with] the best service and support you possibly can, reacting and answering any questions quickly and trying to make the best out of every opportunity that knocks into your door), you have no choice but to succeed!"

DELJOU ART GROUP

"We are always excited and optimistic when we go to the Artexpo New York show," says Anthony Deljou of Deljou Art Group (www. deljouartgroup.com), one of the world's leading fine art publishers. "But for the first time in three years, our clients surprised us with their enthusiasm and overall confidence. Clients who have not purchased inventory in years were buying at pre-recession numbers. Our sales figures for this year's Artexpo New York were up by over 65 percent. We see a great deal of confidence in the marketplace and expect consistent growth moving forward."

"I was very pleased to be a part of Artexpo New York this year," says ABN Top 50 Emerging Artist Sarah Ali (www.sarah-ali.com). "I was humbled by the overwhelming appreciation of my art. It was especially nice to meet other artists and interact with them. I feel like Artexpo has brought about a positive change for me and my business; I am in serious discussions with various galleries and continue to see positive results from the show."

"Artexpo New York 2012 was my most successful art show yet," raves ABN Top 50 Emerging Artist Tibi Hegyesi (www.tibi.ca). "I sold most of the works, I received many inquiries and commissions and a variety of new opportunities opened up ... I received several art gallery representation offers from the U.S., U.K. and Canada and the prestigious Artinfo.com is doing a spotlight page highlighting my Artexpo New York success in their online and print Gallery Guide. The opportunities are just beginning to open up."
