This year’s third-annual Palm Springs Fine Art Fair which took place alongside the Palm Springs Modernism Show & Sale at The Palm Springs Convention Center featured a packed Thursday Night Gala Opening, including an award ceremony for Palm Springs Arts Patron of the Year, arts philanthropist Harold Matzner. Throughout the weekend, the event included artists’ spotlights, a silent auction benefiting the Desert AIDS Project, along with numerous panel discussions.

The event played host to over 55 galleries from all over the globe, with over 16,000 people in attendance throughout the weekend. The cluster of people on opening night made it difficult to get a good look at the overwhelming amount of art so I snapped photos of some interesting characters and returned over the weekend to get a better look at the art.
