This year the Salon was held at a new venue, in Gostiny Dvor, a month later than usual

the Time of the event initially, the participants have shown a lot of skepticism, because at the same time in London the autumn and "Russian auction week", an event more meaningful to buyers, primarily due to the large amount of quality work.

day VIP@Salon ndashоткрытия, November 26 morning held auction Sotheby's, brought together a significant 23.5 million dollars. Perhaps that is why the fair in the most important night not to be seen the many serious buyers and dealers. Sales, of course, were, but they were emotional and most transactions took place in the segment of applied art at prices from 2 to 10 thousand dollars. Next three days sound razmestivshegosya tape, a sure sign of the sale, was heard too, only the dealers PDI. According to the buyers themselves, the main purpose of shopping — gifts for the New year and the decoration of your own home.

At weekends the number of visitors and buyers has increased significantly. Many participants of the fair noted the sale of 1-2 things from the stand and meeting new people. According to rumors, was recorded sales and 50 and 100 thousand dollars, but their number can be counted on the fingers.

summarizing the opinion of participants of the Salon, you can bring the following results:

1. Gostiny Dvor as a platform has a high potential for further development. High ceiling, city centre, close to two large Parking areas give hope for the future involvement of new buyers. Problems with the organization in a new place participants treated with understanding and hope that next time most issues will be resolved. Most important: the timing of the show should be shifted to the end of October — beginning of November.

2. The main trend of the Salon — and crafts: vases, silver candelabra. The number of sales of dealers in this segment far exceeded those who sell the painting. The average check is low — from 1 to 3 thousand dollars, but sold items tens. While expensive, from 15 thousand dollars, Museum-quality DPI left unattended.

3. New customers are very few, but they are. The main hope of all market participants — the emergence of a new novice collectors. Unfortunately, the General economic situation greatly complicates this process, but many sellers said that they give out a bunch of business cards and wait for the new acquaintances in the galleries in the usual manner.

4. The price of the Cabin was above market, but the sellers were willing to make concessions, adjusting to a new reality. Masterpieces that may cost any money, the Cabin was very small, but the average quality modern buyer to pay dearly not ready. In the segment of painting major deals were in the price range from 10 to 30 thousand dollars.

5. The interest of buyers has shifted from classical art to the side works of the twentieth century and contemporary art. The main purpose of shopping — decoration of interiors, gifts, and, alas, to a lesser extent collecting.

in Assessing the overall situation on the market, sellers said that the fall of the Russian art market revived, orders was much more than in the spring. Whereas a successful auction in London, we can assume that the market is in a stage of reversal to growth.
