La Quinta Arts Foundation has earned respect and accolades for our ability to connect the “right buyer” with the artist. An extensive marketing campaign assures a large presence of knowledgeable, serious art patrons.
|The La Quinta Arts Festival is ranked #1 Fine Art Festival in the Nation (Art Fair SourceBook 2013) and consistently achieves $2 million in art sales with average sales per artist exceeding $10,000. Sunshine Artist Fast Audit, June 2012 stated “Although sales often determine how artists rate a show; exhibitors universally lauded this one. They gave perfect scores to prestige of the show”, stating “Patrons are well aware of the show’s high reputation for quality art. They fly in for this show.”|
