The Bos­ton In­ter­na­tional Fine Art Show gives guests the op­por­tu­nity to view and dis­cuss his­toric and con­tem­po­rary works with gallery own­ers

The 22nd an­nual Bos­ton In­ter­na­tional Fine Art Show will show­case works from 40 gal­leries world­wide in an in­ti­mate event that caters to all tastes and sen­si­bil­i­ties. “it’s a small enough show that peo­ple can re­ally see ev­ery­thing, and it’s in­ti­mate enough that they can talk to the ex­hibitors and not feel rushed,” says co-pro­ducer Tony Fusco of Fusco & Four, which or­ga­nizes the show. Fusco ex­plains that all of the deal­ers love to talk with vis­i­tors and col­lec­tors and share their own ap­pre­ci­a­tion for art. “Avery Gal­leries looks for­ward to the Bos­ton In­ter­na­tional Fine Art Show ev­ery year. It’s a great op­por­tu­nity for us to con­nect with our clients in New Eng­land,” says manag­ing direc­tor Ni­cole Amoroso.

Es­tab­lished deal­ers will be in at­ten­dance, in­clud­ing Avery Gal­leries, Que­stroyal Fine Art and Wil­liam Vareika Fine Arts, as well as gal­leries new to the Bos­ton show but highly re­spected in the col­lect­ing world, like Betty Kru­lik Fine Art, Ltd., based in New York, and Parco Fine Art.the show will take place at the Bos­ton Cen­ter for the

Arts from Oc­to­ber 18 to 21, with a pre­view gala on the first day from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.the gala gives at­ten­dees a first look at works for sale while en­joy­ing food, wine and live mu­sic, and all ticket pro­ceeds ben­e­fit the Art for Jus­tice Fund, which makes grants to or­ga­ni­za­tions, ad­vo­cates and artists work­ing to safely re­duce jail and prison pop­u­la­tions across the coun­try.

“This [is] my first time do­ing this show, [giv­ing] me the op­por­tu­nity to show the broad range in which I deal, from 19th and early 20th cen­tury Amer­i­can to se­lected Euro­pean and post war,” says Betty Kru­lik.“i’ll be bring­ing a Rouault, Le­grand and Basquiat as well as the Amer­i­can mas­ters, Gif­ford and Lane in [the] 19th cen­tury, and Glack­ens, Sloan

and Henri in early 20th, and Bluem­ner and Marin for the mod­ernists.”

The show fea­tures a broad range of ma­te­rial, from draw­ings by the Old Mas­ters to con­tem­po­rary art, al­ways hold­ing true to that core fo­cus on Amer­i­can fine art. While the show in­cor­po­rates mostly gal­leries and deal­ers, sev­eral in­di­vid­ual artists will be in at­ten­dance as well, in­clud­ing Kather­ine Hous­ton, who works in porce­lain and em­bod­ies 17th and 18th cen­tury style.and af­ter a long hia­tus, Hein­ley Fine Arts, which was pre­vi­ously based in Bos­ton but is now lo­cated in Taos, New Mex­ico, re­turns to the show this year with a fas­ci­nat­ing group of artists from the New Mex­ico re­gion.“peo­ple re­ally get an eye-open­ing to all the pos­si­bil­i­ties of col­lect­ing,” Fusco says. As part of the Bos­ton In­ter­na­tional Fine Art Show’s pub­lic pro­gram­ming, Amer­i­can Fine Art Mag­a­zine ed­i­tor Joshua Rose will con­duct a one-on-one in­ter­view with Evan Beard, na­tional art ser­vices ex­ec­u­tive at U.s.trust, to dis­cuss the topic of art as an investment.
