At Seattle’s First Art Fair, Dealers Chase Elusive Tech Money

BAC’s last posting re the Seattle Art Fair …

Seattle has suffered an inferiority complex and craved a place at the international — or even national — art world table for as long as I’ve been here, and both Seattle Art Fair and Out of Sight stepped up, with remarkable esprit, to finally do something about it. Whether or not we finally have the collector muscle to sustain a fair that doesn’t fizzle after a year or two has yet to be seen (though plans are already underway for a 2016 edition), but the fair and its offshoots provided a buzz unlike anything we’ve experienced. This weekend was like witnessing a city going through puberty, and it finally kind of feels like we’re on the other side.
