ARTExpo 2013 at Transformer Station

The Northern Ohio Art Dealers Association will hold its ARTExpo 2013 the weekend of May 10, 11 and 12 at the Transformer Station, 1460 West 29th St., Cleveland.

Ten of Ohio’s foremost art dealers* will exhibit some of the best works from their galleries, including a cross section of historic, regional, international, modern and contemporary, paintings, drawings, original prints, photography, fiber art and sculpture. All works will be available for purchase and will appeal to a broad range of tastes from established collectors to those purchasing a work of art for the first time.

All of the participating galleries and dealers have placed art with major museums, private and corporate collections and most offer extensive knowledge of all aspects of collecting art and including conservation, framing, appraisals and installation for both private and corporate clients.

ARTExpo 2013 offers a unique opportunity for patrons to view, consider and purchase fine works of art from among Ohio’s most respected dealers. This is the only expo of its kind in the region and the only place where such a diversified offering can be found all in one place at one time.

Asked about the choice of the Transformer Station as the venue for NOADA ARTExpo 2013, Bill Tregoning, Expo 2013 Chairman and owner of Tregoning & Company responded, "The choice was an easy one. It is the newest and perhaps the most intriguing fine arts venue in Northern Ohio. It will provide both our exhibitors and patrons unique opportunities to view, consider and purchase works of fine art from some of the nation's most reputable dealers, located in Northern Ohio. I think our patrons will be delighted with the quality, value and diversity of the artworks that will be presented here."
