Art Canton 2014 (5th) smoothlydropped its curtain onSeptember 21st, despite a strong

typhoon unexpectedly attacking Guangdong.Some exhibitors could not get off the plane

even if they've almost arrived, some were held up at the departure airport even the day

before the show. Hence, at first we would like to extend our special gratitude to all the

exhibitors who have tried all they can do to attend our fair.

Registered as one of the majortask of economic reform and development in a more

comprehensive and deeper scale by Guangdong Provincial Culture Department, held over

11000 square meters at the Hall 3 of Poly World Trade Center, the fair opened onThursday

September 18thwith a VIP Collectors Preview of over 22 Chamber of Commerce and major

consular representatives visiting the fair, continued with VIP Art Night, and then welcomed

family groups on the weekend.

Art Canton 2014 presented more than 2000 artworks from over 70 galleries and art

companies at home and abroad. According to the statistics, although the number of

visiting people remained at the same level with last year, approximately 24000, near

95 of the exhibitors (4% increase) made deals on-site, It reflects that people in

Guangdong become more open to different artisitc form.

Art Canton 2014 launched a special cooperation with Taobao Auction, "China's

largest online auction platform”, intergrating internet with a professional art fair platform

to explore the e-commerce pattern of artwork's operation. Art Canton thus became the

first professional art fair holding a online preview exhibition and auction in China.

The online auction was held in September19th and 20th during the fair, with hundreds

of thousands of art-lovers paying attention to this event, 4 deals have made at the end

of the day as this is a first trail. Meanwhile, ArtCanton has becomemore and more

familiar to the mass public.

“Compared with art fairs in Beijing and Shanghai, you may found that Art Canton is simple

but complete, in no way you can find a similar piece of art in each exhibitor, every piece is

an original work!” said Zhang fangge, the tour commantator from Guangzhou fine arts

academy, “The same with the oversea galleries this year,there’s not too many, but still each

one has its own uniqueness.”

The oversea casts we brough in the fair also drawed the media's attention. Pashmin Art

Gallery attracts us by its bright and dazzling photography works of Mik Lelman, the

photography is mounted in a plexiglass with good transparancy and no bubble, without a

little impurity, from which you may perceivethe rigorous attitude of this German gallery.

OMSA ArtGallery from Australia fascinate us however by her relaxed and flexible creating

style just as the dancing note, the artist Madeleine feel the musicand paint the music, it is

free with no restriction. LDXArtodrom Gallery also from Germany brought us this time many

paintings mixed with eastern and western elements from emerging european artists.

“The fair is great,” said Mr.Nouri of Pashmin Art Gallery,” we did have some good

conversation with the curators from Shanghai and potential clients in Guangzhou,

hope to establish more collaboration with the art museum in Guangdong.”

Besides, AshokJain Gallery from USA also sold small painting of his featured artists,

Elling Reitan, “I really like this two little characters shining in the distance where the

picture disappear, it gives me some kind of hope, but the big one is too expensive.” said

one client of AJ Gallery. Lizzy Forrester, with her fine and delicate style of drawing, and

sensitive perception to the light, won for herself a project of painting for a new house

decoration. Owing to some personal reasons, Alchemy Gallery had no time to bring all

the big paintings that they originally want to present, but still people who had real interest

could browse their artworks through the catalogue.The young artisit Anna Salenko

from Russia also unfold the modern city of China in her mind before our eyes.

During the 4 daysof exhibiton, Art Canton held 9 rounds of thematic forums and

lectures, which corresponded to the thematic exhibition. The forums and lectures are

also in accordance with people’s interests and concerns towards art.

The fifth yearof Canton International Art and Collection Fair has improved in many

aspects, compared with the previous years, with higher quality of exhibited artworks,

more deals made on-site and online, more supporting academic forums and lectures

in the fair, which has made Art Canton a higher level of professional art fair and an

important name card for Guangzhou urban culture.
