Art San Diego Testimonials

2017 Testimonials

After we wrap up a show, our favorite thing is to hear the glowing reviews that come in from our exhibitors and attendees in the days following. Here are a few takeaways from the Del Mar premiere of Art San Diego!

  • Without question, the Art San Diego attendees were engaged and knowledgeable about art in general. I spoke to so many people who were lovely and welcoming and definitely open to photography as an art form. And thank you for the honor of being one of the Spotlight Artists.

  • I was quite pleased with the show and attendance. I like the new location. Of course, my favorite day was the Opening Night Preview on Thursday when I sold my best pieces. The attendee interest was good. It was a good show!

  • It was an honor for The Studio Door to work alongside the San Diego Visual Arts Network, Art San Diego, and the Athenaeum on this year's San Diego Art Prize booth. Throughout the weekend, Art San Diego 2017 found very little downtime as artists, art leaders, and patrons filled Wyland Center at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

  • Very exhausted today after a successful show at Art San Diego. Really huge improvement on the venue location. Lovely people came to visit my booth and made many, many good and useful contacts with my art and sales. Thank you to all collectors, gallerists, visitors, artists, and show producers for a great show.

  • I was honored to be part of a great selection of galleries and artists. The quality of a show makes the artist think on a new level, as well as being educated at the same time. Also, I experienced that the public sees the artist with different eyes due to the quality of the show. The public knows that to be part of such a high standard of show, it places value on the paintings and artist. And I sold two paintings from the show! They were sold after the show was over with follow-up.

  • Many of my colleagues in the San Diego arts community expressed the thought that this year's venue at Del Mar was a great choice. It also made a difference in sales. Continuing to keep the show in North County will help promote a more informed audience and broaden our collector base.

  • We always enjoy the RMG shows and love Southern California. The show was well-run and organized. The RMG gang is always very welcoming and accommodating for any needs. We liked the new location. It's a nice venue with good amenities, and I liked the natural light. Every day of the show had a nice feel and flow to it.

  • "We wanted to let you all know how much we appreciated being a part of Art San Diego 2016 and what a wonderful job we thought you all did in preparing the venue and presenting the show. We continue to count it a privilege to be part of the RMG family and thought that this edition of ASD had a particularly classy, high-end look to it with the wide aisles, open center space, lighting, and high ceiling. Well done. Looking forward to seeing you in Miami."

Thank you to the show organizers, who were extremely helpful in setting me up for success. Thank you to my buyers, who did not go home without my work. Thank you to my new friends, who constantly stopped by for friendly conversations. And I thank the young helpers who got down seriously to help me dismantle my stretched canvasses with honesty and dedication. One of them continued to help until everything was done. Again, thank you all. PEACE!"
