City of sales

The Auckland Art Fair is a great success. Very well organised, a wide range of exhibitors, good attendances, decent coffee, late nights and, from what we could see, good sales. The major talking point? As more galleries were likely to want to participate in next time, would it mean the terrific current venue being expanded or the Fair having to move? Luxury problem for the organisers.
