The vast Seattle Art Fair — 100 exhibitors! — brings plenty to discover

August 06, 2017

This year, the  art fair’s layout feels much more fluid and porous. It’s much easier to rove in and out, as one sees at other fairs, such as the Armory Show. You sometimes can’t tell where one booth ends and another begins without looking at the signage overhead. That’s great news for visitors, who want to be at ease as they look at the art. And hopefully it will be great news for the gallerists, too. When people can more easily fall in love with a work, they are more likely to take it home, after all.
