“We are proud of our diverse line-up of exhibitors this year,” notes co-producer Tony Fusco. “There are no restrictions on what art can be shown. As a result, we end up with thousands of unique paintings ranging from affordable pieces created by today’s most promising artists to museum quality masterpieces from Old Masters to the present.” This year visitors can expect works of art like Avery Gallery’s (PA) sweeping impressionist seascapes, Bowersock Gallery’s (MA) emotive contemporary animals, and Parco Fine Art’s (MA) traditional and contemporary Cape Ann masterpieces.

Several of the exhibitors this year have been attending the show for years, guaranteeing exceptional art each fall. Questroyal Fine Art (NY), returning for their 22nd year, will arrive with a selection of their 19th and 20th century American artwork ranging from Hudson River School oils to more recent modernism and realism. Another original exhibitor is Martha Richardson Fine Art (MA). One of the largest galleries in New England, William Vareika Fine Arts (RI), will be displaying art from three centuries.

Decouvért Fine Art (MA) and Christine Magne, Antiquaire (PA) both return to offer exceptional Old Master works.

Boston’s own Renjeau Galleries (MA) represents traditional artists but also incorporates contemporary and abstract artists into their selection. Renjeau truly offers a taste of the wide variety of art Boston can offer. Donna Heinley Fine Arts (NM) will be showing off the best that the South West can offer with contemporary paintings from New Mexico. AAMARP, the African-American Master Artists-in-Residence Program (MA), will display a variety of work from religious-themed pieces to pen and ink drawings, many of which reflect on the African-American experience. The Boston International Fine Art Show is one of the few shows of its kind where you can speak to an artist about their work and also admire the work of visionaries from hundreds of years ago.

The 22nd Annual Show takes place October 18-21, 2018 at the Cyclorama, Boston Center for the Arts, 539 Tremont Street in Boston’s South End. The Thursday Gala Preview is held 5:30-8:30pm and weekend hours are: Friday October 19 1-8, Saturday October 20 11-8, and Sunday October 21 11-5.
