Art San Diego Contemporary Art Show, the annual art fair that's exhibited work by established and emerging artists and galleries since 2009, was recently purchased by Redwood Media Group, which operates Artexpo New York, Spectrum Miami and other large-scale art fairs.
Art San Diego founder and director Ann Berchtold says she was approached by Redwood Media Group show director Eric Smith at last year's fair."I really like their organization," Berchtold says. "[Smith] brings to Art San Diego a lot of resources that I just didn't have. They’re already close to being sold out this year—they're at about 60 percent of the fair, which is amazing for this time of the year. Their outreach is amazing. They're bringing galleries from Latin America, from China, from all over the world."
