ART FORT LAUDERDALE is a revolutionary Art Fair experience incorporating multiple different exhibits which will provide a new an innovative approach to view and interact with art. It will be an outlet that will give artists the opportunity to showcase and sell their work in ways they've never showcased before whether they are independent or being represented by a gallery. This four day event will transport attendees on complimentary water taxi and yachts to exclusive exhibits at a number of waterfront properties along the Famed Las Olas Intracoastal Waterways, otherwise known as "The Venice Of The America's". These exhibits will feature paintings, illustrations, sculptures, installations, artist talks, and art & technology collaborations throughout the following exhibitions:

This exhibition at the Oceanland Investments Sales Center will showcases two of South Florida's most accomplished artists; Digital Art Pioneer Laurence Gartel and Painter Barry Gross, both with careers spanning more than 40 years. This location will also host our VIP Opening Reception, and feature a series of Artist Talks and Panels covering topics such as "Art In Fort Lauderdale" and "Where the Art World is Going".

The artINDIE experience features the best work from independent artists in an exceptional waterfront estate that boasts slightly over 8,000 total sq. ft of art in an environment that is the perfect avenue for curators, critics and collectors to discover the next prodigy.

Come experience a multitude of artistic interpretations and installations in an iconic residence with 600+ ft of waterfront comprised of 5 expansive lots that wrap the perimeter of Isla Bahia. This legendary residence was constructed for Ohio industrialist & song-writer Bob Friedman & his wife Genie (one of the granddaughters of Oscar Mayer). The exhibit will feature everything from Mind Bending Installations by famed Artistic Geniuses to the Google Tilt Brush Virtual Reality activation.


​Local and International galleries will display artworks from the artists that they represent in a collection of 3 story waterfront town homes inspired by contemporary architecture & tropical modernism .
