IFPDA’s Los Angeles Fine Print Fair at Bonhams

Another art fair happening this weekend is the Los Angeles Fine Print Fair @ Bonhams in West Hollywood. A much more intimate affair organized by members of the International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA). The fair features a charming group of notable fine art print dealers and informative public programs. Personally, I’m looking forward to the CARING FOR A PRINT COLLECTION panel discussion on Sunday morning…nerdy I know but it’s important to know how to take care of your art prints (they could be worth a lot of $$$ someday!). xL
