The largest art fair on the West Coast takes off with galleries exhibiting both promising (and pocket-friendly) unknowns to million-dollar, century-old masterpieces. Staged as an exhibition geared for connoisseurs and the "arts-curious," the LA Art Show always features an exhaustingly impressive roster — past exhibits showcased works from Jasper Johns, Robert Motherwell, Rembrandt, Ed Ruscha, Julian Schnabel, and Emerson Woelffer. You get the idea.

LA Art Show says…

The LA Art Show, now in its 18th year, is the longest running platform for contemporary, modern, historic and traditional fine art in the country. The 2012 show hosted more than 100 prominent galleries and attracted more than 50,000 visitors with its ‘Fair-within-a-Fair’ concept featuring distinct sections catering to diverse collecting genres. Taking place from January 24-27, The LA Art Show kicks-off at the Los Angeles Convention Center with a star-studded opening hosted by Ali Larter and Hayes MacArthur benefitting The Art of Elysium and the J. Paul Getty’s Education Department on January 23. Taking a cue a cue from the public art museum model, where there has long been a trend of juxtaposing contemporary art alongside older works to show movements and highlight the evolution of art through the ages, the LA Art Show is entirely unique in the art world, providing collectors with a complete art experience through an expansive breadth of galleries that crosses contemporary, historic and print genres.
