Prestigious Point Art Monaco inaugurated by Prince Albert

Nineteen reputable art galleries reunited under one roof

The 4th edition of PAM – Point Art Monaco – Fine Art Fair was inaugurated yesterday under the High Patronage and in the presence of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco. The Prince was very elegant in his black tuxedo as he was the guest of honor at the closing of the TV Festival, but he was certainly not going to miss this exceptional art gathering. This highly regarded event, inscribed in the international art agenda, gathers 19 of the most prestigious Monegasque and International galleries,, in a superb setting purposely created for this occasion at the Sporting d’Hiver in the Casino Square, the core of the Principality. This multidimensional space allows for a variety of pieces to coexist while keeping each of them their particular area. In an effort to showcase internationally renowned Antique and Art Dealers of the world, exhibitors were carefully selected by an Official Committee. The Salon will be open to the public from Thursday, June 12 through Monday, June 16, and visitors will have the chance to appreciate a breathtaking selection of archeological pieces, period paintings, ancient and modern works of art, antiques, jewellery, and much more. This art extravaganza was created in 2004 but it wasn’t until 2011 when five important Monaco galleries decided to cooperate that it gained momentum and grew in prestige. They are: Adriano Ribolzi Art Gallery, Galerie Filippo Grippaldi, Maison d’Art, MC Fine Arts and M.F. Toninelli Art Modern; who share a passion for art and whose objective is to promote fine art in the Principality by aiming for excellence. Through their collaboration this impactful art fair has risen through the ranks of major international forums of top professionals and art collectors.
