Marketing Art & Fine Crafts For Over 30 Years
American Art Marketing is a marketing and event production company dedicated to advancing the livelihood of artists and artisans. We produce five trademark exhibitions per year in cities along the East Coast of the U.S. and match artists with thousands of collectors year-round at our affiliate company, An American Craftsman Galleries, in New York City and Stockbridge, Massachusetts.
Richard and Joanna Rothbard, Founders & Directors of American Art Marketing, have launched and produced art fairs and craft shows for over 30 years. They established the American Fine Craft Show NYC, Contemporary Art Fair NYC and the Rockefeller Arts Festival in Manhattan. Currently, they also produce the 15th annual summer Berkshires Arts Festival in Massachusetts in July and Sarasota Craft Show in Florida in December. They launched The Art of American Craft Museum Series featuring the American Fine Craft Show Brooklyn at Brooklyn Museum, every November the weekend before Thanksgiving. Recent shows have been added in Hartford, CT American Fine Craft Show Hartford, Washington, DC American Fine Craft Show Washington and in Princeton, NJ. The Rothbards also own An American Craftsman Galleries, www.anamericancraftsman.com, with Manhattan locations at 790 7th Avenue (52nd Street) and 150 West 55th Street, as well as in Stockbridge, MA. Richard Rothbard, a craftsman who designs puzzle boxes of wood, Boxology (www.boxology.com), has a studio and offices in Slate Hill, NY.
Richard Rothbard first began making sculpted furniture and wood accessories in 1967 with a couple of creative woodworkers in a small Manhattan workshop. Later that year he opened Impressions of Wood on Lexington Avenue and 65th Street for exhibiting and selling one-of-a-kind furniture and fine crafts. One year after Joanna and Richard met in 1976, they closed the gallery, moved to the country and began exhibiting Richard’s popular and quirky wooden boxes full-time at craft shows around the country. Boxology is still an important part of Richard's business life and thrives in his An American Craftsman galleries. In 1980, Richard produced his first craft show in Rhineback, New York opposite the American Crafts Councils’ famous event. It was a gutsy and disruptive move that proved enormously successful. That show ran for thirteen years and led to the creation of American Art Marketing in 1982 to manage production for an expanding national roster of shows annually.
