International Artist DayOctober 25th since 2004 Follow IAD On TwitterDONATE


The IAD promotes and works with a wide variety of artists in all genres including Painting, Sculpting, Drawing, Photography, Music, Glass, Literary, Acting, Dance, Digital and more.

In some form or another ART impacts us all on a daily basis. Centuries of our human condition have been chronicled and depicted by artists.

Galleries are filled to overflowing, and yet,
the modern artist remains an enigma.

The IAD elevates artists to a position that brings them greater credibility respective of the social impact they make. We do it in part by increasing their visibility through IAD Fine Art Shows. Our shows introduce artists to markets they find hard to access on their own at home and around the world.

IAD Fine Art Shows can include one or two of these genres on the list, or all of the above and more.

It's important to define your focus though, so you can better attract the correct artists and well matched sponsors and buyers.

Good artists are busy, which means if you'd like them to grace your show you have to contact them well in advance. Sponsors are also selective, which means they need to feel comfortable their brand is represented properly. And Buyers, well we all know how challenging they can be too.

Choosing a show location is also critically important. The space needs to reflect the quality of art.

If you expect to attract a BUYING CROWD you need to offer them something exciting and exclusive. There are many run-of-the-mill "Art Shows" that "water down" the market by providing mostly generic offerings and lackluster artists.

IAD Shows are different.

We promote to not only local buyers, but also to an international following, which means our standards reflect a global perspective and high level of quality. When an artist exhibits at an IAD show they have been vetted by the local promoters. The artist has also chosen only their best works to showcase because they know their work will be seen globally.

Saying that, the IAD is also a firm believer in helping YOUTH and new artists further their skills.

We not only promote new artists through our online community and networks, we provide BURSURIES so young artists can be inspired to grow and learn.

At an IAD Show buyers see not only the best art in the region from the BEST Fine Artists, but also the Best Art of New and Upcoming Artists.

It is in these new artists where forward thinking purchases can be made by art investors who have the experience and clarity to recognize a future star.
