Following the announcement of their leadership unification early last year, both Art Palm Beach and the LA Art Show are just around the corner.

Taking place at the Palm Beach County Convention Center January 24–28, Art Palm Beach will welcome over 80 leading art galleries and promises to have on view artworks by some of history’s most famous artists. Highlights include a presentation by Hollis Taggart of five Andy Warhol pieces as well as work by Jackson Pollock at Provident Fine Art, and Modern Fine Art showing Marc Chagall’s Esquisse pour le Grand Cirque (1956).

Adding to the grandeur, the fair will be the hosting HRH Prince Nikolaos of Greece and Denmark, coinciding his special exhibit “Dialogos,” presented by Ethan Cohen and curated by Mariena Koutsoukou and Ethan Cohen featuring photographs and marble works. Producer and Director of Art Palm Beach Kassandra Voyagis said, “This year, Art Palm Beach is going to be unmatched for the galleries participating, the level of art that’s being shown, and of course having royalty at our fair. Prince Nikolaos showcasing his impressive works makes this years show even more exciting.”

And giving back continues to be a priority of the show, and for the forthcoming edition, 15% of all show proceeds will be donated to The American Heart Association—including from the red-carpet opening night event.

Following close on Art Palm Beach’s heels, the LA Art Show will return next month with a Valentine’s day opening on February 14 a the Los Angeles Convention Center and running through February 18. The Opening Night Premier Party will be hosted by award-winning actress Lucy Hale and in collaboration with the American Heart Association—the LA Art Show’s new charity partner. Like with its counterpart Art Palm Beach, 15% of all ticket proceeds will go to the American Heart Association’s “Life is Why” campaign.

Of the 2024 edition of the LA Art Show, Kassandra Voyagis said, “With over 100 galleries, museums, and nonprofits exhibiting this year, we continue our commitment to creating the most comprehensive contemporary art experience possible. This year’s show will celebrate art—globally and locally—and inspire important dialogue.”

One such program promoting ongoing dialogue is the return of DIVERSEartLA, which has partnered with seven international art institutions to focus on ideas around memory, humanity, and the advent of A.I. Curated by Marisa Caichiolo, highlights of the partnerships include the Nevada Museum of Art, presenting “The Journey” by Guillermo Bert, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Bogota, staging “Mythstories” by Carlos Castro Arias.

And participating gallery promise to show equally thought-provoking and timely exhibitions. Among them, Tanya Weddemire Gallery is slated to present a range of work by four significant Black artists who delve into ideas around identity, culture, and resilience, coinciding with Black History Month. Elsewhere, the Young Masters Art Prize featured exhibition is set to be presented by Cynthia Corbett Gallery.
