  • "We were so pleased to receive the Best Booth Design award at our first-ever art fair. It gives us a very positive outlook on our work, our gallery, and how future art fairs will go for us. Our top selling piece was Petals by Laszlo Lukacsi, which sold for $58,000."

  • 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.

  • I thank each and every one of the people who visited me at Art San Diego 2018, including family, friends, acquaintances, and visitors I didn't know. I feel humbled and blessed by the comments received that help me grow and move forward in the world of art. I also thank Redwood Media Group for their professionalism, excellent attitude, and motivation toward exhibitors and the public. They were ready to solve any situation in an extremely efficient way. Special thanks to Rick Barnett and Sara Ruvalcaba for all their assistance and support.

  • Just a note to let you know how much we enjoyed the Collectors' Night Party. I was really impressed with the level of talent and the [Palette of Dessert] bakers and the show itself. Clever use of the bakers and art connectivity, too. The Oslo Sardine Bar was incredibly thought-provoking and the sardines were very good, too! And the outdoor lighting, art, and creative use of sand or dirt in the parking area was our last bit of surprise as it was daylight when we arrived. Thank you for sharing the experiences with us.

  • I loved the new dates. As for the location, I met a lot of new people this year, many who never attended before. Best of luck to you and the team for successful shows. Until next time!

2018 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 Art San Diego 2018 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds!

  • This was my first time participating in Art San Diego, and the overall experience was fantastic. I got a chance to see what is up and coming with the latest in contemporary art and connect with influential artists, curators, and connoisseurs alike!

    Nathaniel Rudolph Director, Legend Nano Gallery
  • I wanted to thank RMG personally for the opportunity to be involved in the 10th anniversary of Art San Diego with Redwood Media Group. As you know, the Victory Art are enormous monumental scale sculptures made from chairs, and we are new to the national art scene. I was really moved by all of the attention and questions from your guests as well as the warm welcome it was given from all of your long-time national exhibitors. Very well done.

  • It was really 100 percent the pleasure and honor of Monarch School to be featured in such a meaningful way at Art San Diego this year. We had a record number of 16 student artists who submitted work for the Access to Art booth, and the kids who attended the VIP Opening Night Party were just glowing the following day. Experiences like this truly can be life changing for them! The high school students have continued to talk this week about how much they enjoyed the film fest and the field trip to the show. We also connected with a number of local artists who would like to build a relationship with Monarch School, which will be a game-changer for our after-school open studio! So … thank YOU! Looking forward to more great collaboration with you and the Art San Diego team in the future!

  • Thank you so much for a great show. It was really helpful to have such support during setup and to have a very informative talk on how to have a successful show. I really appreciated that and felt that we were all a team working together. Thursday night was an amazing opening party! I am happy to say that I sold quite a few pieces during the show and made lots of wonderful contacts. I am very keen on doing the Redwood Media Group circuit. Thanks again for what was a great show for me. I look forward to Spectrum Miami.

  • Art San Diego and the RMG team: Invested interest. Up close and personal. Honest communication. Integrity and genuine sincerity. On these values, RMG builds the show’s foundation for artists’ and exhibitors’ success where everything works effectively and efficiently. Top down, Redwood Media Group sets an enthusiastic tone that attracts the finest talent and draws in savvy viewers and qualified collectors who leave with the lasting impression of “Wow!”

  • 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.

  • 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.

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 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."
