This is a real loss to the art fair business. You think these events will always be there and to have such a solid show disappear is a shock. Such a very fine event that attracted the best artists in the business and the clientele that could appreciate and buy their work. I'm so sorry to be posting this here. From what I've read the show will not likely return after 2020.
Many thanks to the La Quinta Arts Festival Foundation that has built this fine event that has been a very bright light in the art fair business. We look forward to what Christi Salamone and Kathleen Hughes will bring us next.
