The 18th annual Boston International Fine Art Show takes place Thursday, November 13, through Sunday,November 16, at The Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts in the city’s historic South End. The event features 40 galleries from the United States, Canada, and Europe presenting more than 3,000 original works by national and international artists in a wide array of subjects, styles, and mediums—including paintings, works on paper, sculpture, photography, fine-art prints, mixed-media works, and more. The event kicks off with a ticketed Gala Preview on Thursday, November 13, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. to benefit Friends of the Boston Park Rangers Mounted Unit. Then the show and sale takes place on Friday from 1 to 8 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Special programs also are planned throughout the weekend and are free with admission to the show.

With no restrictions on the type of work that may be shown, the show features everything from fine original prints priced at a few hundred dollars to museum-quality paintings priced in the millions. The show also features an impressive mix of blue-chip traditional works, 20th-century modernist genres, and works by today’s leading contemporary artists. Galleries exhibiting traditional and contemporary American art at this year’s event include Marine Arts Gallery, Salem, MA; Newbury Fine Arts, Boston, MA; Principle Gallery, Alexandria, VA, and Charleston, SC; Adelson Galleries, Boston, MA; Argosy Gallery, Bar Harbor, ME; and many more.

“We are thrilled with the range and diversity for our 18th annual show, which speaks to an increasingly global art market and to the constantly growing diversity of Boston’s population,” says Tony Fusco, who co-produces the show with his associate Robert Four, of the marketing and public relations agency Fusco & Four. “With just 40 galleries, show goers can see a whole world of art, renew their love of their favorite artists and periods, and discover new artists as well.”
