Boston, MA - Co-Producers Tony Fusco and Robert Four are pleased to announce the 23rd Annual Boston International Fine Art Show takes place Oct. 24 - 27, 2019 at the Cyclorama, Boston Center for the Arts. The show will once again feature an outstanding selection of historic, modern and contemporary fine art offered by 40 galleries from the United States and Europe.

Galleries interested in exhibiting at the show should visit www.FuscoFour.com and click the link at the bottom of the page to register. This year, as Public Relations and Marketing Agency, Fusco & Four is celebrating its 40th Anniversary of promoting the arts and design industries, and more than 20 years as a show and event producer. The team also produces Boston Design Week, which recently held its 6th annual festival with more than 80 events citywide, attracting 20,000 attendees. Boston Design Week is now part of an international coalition of more than 30 Design Weeks globally.

The Boston International Fine Art Show is the only show and sale of its kind in New England, and one of the few successful shows in the country to feature both historic and contemporary work. The show takes place October 24-27 at The Cyclorama, Boston Center for the Arts, located at 539 Tremont Street in Boston’s South End. The Gala Preview takes place Thursday, October 24, 5:30-8:30pm. Weekend hours are Friday, October 25 1-8pm, Saturday, October 26, 11-8pm, and Sunday, October 27 11-5pm. Weekend admission is $15, under 12 free and includes all special programs, re-admission throughout the weekend, show catalog, and coat check. For more information visit www.FineArtBoston.com or call 617.363.0405.

The Gala Preview has been called “one of the highlights on the city’s cultural calendar”, with one media source declaring: “The event organizers/art dealers/marketers combine their skills with a grace that befits a slew of experience, a fitting hand for the duo that has been around since the very beginning and helped shape the current Boston cultural climate into a thriving and burgeoning community rooted in action. And with them come the galleries and dealers, designers and decorators and makers and builders, both old and new, who continue to promote the arts and surge the city forward.”  Attracting an audience of both seasoned and new collectors, the Gala is an elegant evening where attendees have first choice of the works on view while enjoying fine food and wine and live music.

When the show started at The Cyclorama, there was a derelict theatre and a vacant lot next door, the roof leaked, the neighborhood was dangerous at night, and the area was far from the re-gentrified arts hub that it is today.  BIFAS has been one of the engines of that transformation, bringing tens of thousands of people to the area who had never before been to the South End. The 20-year economic impact of BIFAS based on a simple multiplier of the show budget is in the tens of millions of dollars, not even counting the millions of dollars in fine art the show has sold over the years.
