The Other Art Fair Los Angeles in Partnership with BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® Returns with Guest Artist Melissa Villaseñor

The Independent Artist Fair Will Host Its Next Los Angeles Edition Featuring 140 Artists, Interactive Installations, Live Tattooing, and Surprise Performances

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Other Art Fair, a global art event dedicated to showcasing independent artists, is set to host its eighth Los Angeles edition September 22–25, 2022, at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. Presented by Saatchi Art in partnership with BOMBAY SAPPHIRE®, The Other Art Fair will showcase 140 independent and emerging artists alongside Guest Artist Melissa Villaseñor.

Fair attendees will have the chance to meet artists in person and discover thousands of original artworks across various media—including painting, photography, sculpture, drawing, fiber arts, ceramics, and more—in a range of prices from under $100 to $10,000. Additionally, guests can enjoy special installations, live DJ sets from the creatives at dublab, delicious eats from local food vendors, and more, including live tattooing by Siobhan and custom prints by Portrai Me.

Throughout the fair weekend, the BOMBAY SAPPHIRE bar will serve complimentary gin cocktails, and fair attendees can look forward to refreshing twists on the quintessentially classic Gin & Tonic created by the experts at BOMBAY SAPPHIRE.

Comedian, actress, singer, and artist Melissa Villaseñor joins as Guest Artist with Moonlight Arts Collective, unveiling exclusive new works from her latest series, “Free to Break Apart.” Alongside Villaseñor’s works, fair visitors can discover additional exclusive works as part of a special feature by Moonlight Arts Collective. Founded by Incubus frontman, an artist himself, Brandon Boyd, Moonlight Arts Collective features art by multi-hyphenated artists often known in other areas. Original works and print editions by Melissa Villaseñor, Aric Improta, Brandon Boyd, Brian Bowen Smith, Dolly Wiseman, Heart Evangelista, Jen Rosenstein, Jose Pasillas, and Sarah Rose Hyland will be available at the Fair.

Alongside its exhibitor line-up—handpicked by a selection committee of art world luminaries that includes celebrated artist Analia Saban, Self Help Graphics & Art’s Natalie Godinez, and Saatchi Art Chief Curator Rebecca Wilson—The Other Art Fair will also introduce the three Los Angeles–based recipients of its Fall 2022 New Futures awards in partnership with BOMBAY SAPPHIRE. Formalized in 2021 as part of The Other Art Fair’s ongoing mission to break down traditional barriers of the contemporary art world, New Futures is designed to launch the careers of talented emerging artists by awarding local artists mentoring and free exhibition space onsite at the Fair. BOMBAY SAPPHIRE’s support provides additional amplification to the winners as part of a shared pursuit to nurture and create opportunities for emerging artists. The Other Art Fair is currently accepting applications from local artists for its remaining 2022 editions.

As an exclusive to the Los Angeles Fair, Saatchi Art will debut Visions of the Future, an auction and exhibition showcasing some of the best up-and-coming talent within the photography NFT space, guest curated by a world-class panel of experts.

“As we move into a second decade of hosting Fairs, I am proud of the work we’ve done, the success our exhibiting artists have achieved, and our substantial growth into new markets both in the U.S. and internationally,” said Ryan Stanier, founder of The Other Art Fair. “We’ve always aimed to create a welcoming, non-intimidating environment for both new and seasoned art collectors, and over the past decade we’ve continued to deliver on that promise.”
