Are you an art enthusiast looking to stay in the know about all the exciting art happenings throughout the year? Whether you’re a seasoned collector or just someone who appreciates art, there are plenty of ways to keep track of the art world’s events calendar. From auctions to fairs and exhibitions, here’s how you can immerse yourself in the art world happenings all year round:

Art Websites and Blogs: Start by exploring art-related websites like ArtNews, Artnet, Artsy, and Artforum. These websites often have event calendars that list all the important art auctions, fairs, and exhibitions.

Social Media: Social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook are excellent resources for art enthusiasts. Follow galleries, museums, and art institutions to get regular updates about upcoming events. You can also discover new artists and events by using relevant art-related hashtags.

Art Market Platforms: If you’re particularly interested in auctions, platforms like Christie’s and Sotheby’s have dedicated event calendars that include auction dates and previews. These are great resources for keeping track of high-profile art sales.

Art Fair Websites: Major art fairs such as TEFAF, Frieze, and Art Basel have official websites with detailed event calendars. These fairs are major highlights in the art world and shouldn’t be missed.

Art Organizations: Consider joining or subscribing to art organizations or local art associations. They often provide event listings to their members, which can be a valuable resource.

Art Magazines and Newspapers: Stay informed by subscribing to art-focused magazines and newspapers like The Art Newspaper, ArtReview, and Art in America. These publications frequently feature event listings and in-depth coverage of the art world.

Art Forums and Communities: Engage with online art forums and communities where members share information about upcoming events and exhibitions. These platforms are a great way to connect with fellow art enthusiasts.

Art Apps: Download art-related apps that offer event listings, artist profiles, and exhibition reviews. These apps make it easy to access art information on the go.

Art Galleries and Museums: Don’t forget to visit local art galleries and museums. Their websites, newsletters, or in-person inquiries can reveal details about upcoming exhibitions and events in your region.

Art Market Reports: Consider subscribing to art market research reports and newsletters. These resources often include information on upcoming auctions, market trends, and insider insights.
