Building on the success of last year’s event, producers Tony Fusco and Robert Four will once again complement AD 20/21’s spectacular selection of 20th and 21st Century dealers in fine art, furniture, jewelry, and decorative arts with the 14th Annual Boston Print Fair, which will offer prints, photography, drawings and works on paper.

The show opens Thursday, March 21, with a Gala Preview from 5:30-8:30pm, with all proceeds benefiting Boston Architectural College (BAC), New England's largest independent, accredited college of spatial design. Last year's Gala was attended by more than 600 people and raised over $100,000 for the BAC. The show continues Friday, March 22 from 1-8pm, Saturday, March 23 from 11am-8pm, and Sunday, March 24 from 11am-5pm. Weekend admission is $15, under 12 free and includes admission to all special programs, lectures and panel discussions at the fair. Valet and discount parking is available, and the show café is catered by Jules Catering.
"Combining AD 20/21 and the Boston Print Fair was tremendously successful in generating buyers for exhibitors across the spectrum," comments Tony Fusco. "And the BAC's enthusiasm and tremendous networks means the show is packed with interior designers, architects, art collectors, design enthusiasts, and new audiences looking for a fresh perspective on collecting and on furnishing their homes. We are thrilled to continue our relationship with BAC."

Launched in 2008, AD 20/21 captured imaginations in its first year on the Boston show scene. The show features 20th century works in all disciplines. Notably, the show also includes outstanding 21st century studio furniture, glass, ceramics, decorative arts, jewelry, photography, and more, bridging the gap between historical styles and contemporary works, and deepening collectors' appreciation for both.
The show takes place at The Cyclorama, Boston Center for the Arts. This historical exhibition hall is location in the heart of Boston's South End in a complex that includes the Boston Ballet School, four theatres, artists' studios, restaurants, a jazz club, and more. The Cyclorama has become a mecca in Boston for the arts, and is also the location for Fusco & Four's annual Boston International Fine Art Show (BIFAS), which has been running for 16 years. Fusco & Four also re-launched the Ellis Boston Antiques Show at The Cyclorama in October 2011. For more information on all three shows, visit www.BostonArtFairs.com.
Exhibitor applications are now being accepted for the 2013 Boston Print Fair and AD20/21 show.
