Mystery Train at The Other Art Fair

by Gregg Chadwick

Absolutely loved showing my art at the inaugural Los Angeles edition of The Other Art Fair. The attendance was amazing. My sales were strong. Fielding follow up transactions this week. To top it all off, the TOAF staff and volunteers were amazing and the camaraderie between the exhibiting artists was exceptional. Kudos to Nicole Garton, Sophie Lucas, Ryan Stanier, Emma Warren, Briana Salatino, Gina Hewitt, et al. Next stop Chicago, Los Angeles again, and more.

Saatchi Art's The Other Art Fair (TOAF) is artist centric and artist empowering.  Once accepted into TOAF you become part of a global community of artists who have taken part in numerous fairs across the globe from Los Angeles, to Brooklyn, to London, to Sydney. Chicago is the next new destination. In this community, artist relationships provide important knowledge and a supportive community.

As an exhibiting artist at TOAF - you make all the decisions - what work to bring, how to hang it, what price points to emphasize.
The fair is professionally run and effortlessly hip. The vibe is fun and again artist centric.
The combined forces of Saatchi Art and TOAF have an amazing PR engine. Visitors came to downtown Los Angeles (DTLA) in droves for the fair. It was packed and people bought art.

Radio, Radio 
I took part in an art centered radio show today with Gwenda Joyce in which we talked about The Other Art Fair and also the stARTup Art Fair where I spoke on a panel  in January. Ryan Stanier, founder & general manager of The Other Art Fair, and Ray Beldner (stARTup Art Fair founder) along with artists Dana deKalb, Gwen Samuels, and myself filled out the program. As Ray Beldner reminded us, "Art is about story." At The Other Art Fair and stARTup Art Fair, visitors are able to interact with the artists directly, share stories, and create new ones.
