PALM BEACH, FL.- International Fine Art
Expositions (IFAE) founders and AIFAF organizers David and Lee Ann Lester
reported that a record 5,100 collectors attended the opening Vernissage honoring
the Norton Museum of Art Tuesday evening at the Palm Beach County Convention
Sales during the first day of the fair indicate that the US art
economy is rebounding strongly – consistent with very strong auction sales in
New York on Wednesday – where a Giacometti sculpture sold for a record $105
million – a new high for any work of art. The American International
Fine Art Fair continues its run through February 8.
