***There will be no Pan Art Fair this fall.***
For a variety of reasons, I have decided not to do a Pan Art Fair at the same time as the Texas Contemporary Art Fair, as I did last year.
The Pan Art Fair in 2012
Now that doesn't mean that you can't have your own art fair. After all, there is no reason you can't rent a room in the Embassy Suites for a few nights from October 10 to 13. A suite on the 3rd floor (next to the pool!) only costs $150 a night. So for four nights, that's just $600. Throw in an extra $200 and they'll remove any furniture you want removed. So that's $800 (plus tax)--a lot cheaper than a booth at the Texas Contemporary Art Fair!
I realize that $800 (plus tax) is a lot of money, but these are big suites. Several artists (or small galleries or artist-run spaces or whatever) could go in together on one. And if anyone does get a suite for their own mini-satellite art fair, I will happily promote it here.
