In July my wife Karen and I traveled to New Mexico again to show at Art Santa Fe. This was the seventh year that we have exhibited at this “boutique” art fair. Once again, the event brought together galleries from Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the United States. The attendees seemed to be equally divided between local Santa Feans and out-of-towners, many of whom return year after year to enjoy the food, music, dramatic skies, and art that make Santa Fe an appealing destination. Despite the fact that art is everywhere—200 galleries and a dozen museums in two square miles—we have found an appreciative audience for my work that makes it worthwhile to keep going back.
I had a juried single-artist space at Art San Diego from September 6th through 9th, 2012. The fair, in its fourth year, was held in the Balboa Park Activities Center.
Art San Diego casts a wider subject matter net than most other art fairs. There were zones within the exhibit hall dedicated to Contemporary Art, Mid-Century and Modern Art, Contemporary Furniture Design, and Curated Solo-Artist Booths. I had one of the latter. Read the rest of this entry »
I exhibited at Art Santa Fe in July for the fifth consecutive year. I keep going back because my work seems to be finding a growing audience in Northern New Mexico—not only among local Santa Feans but also among art-aware people from across the country who come back year after year to spend their summers in the region.

I exhibited again this past July in a single-artist Project Space at the international contemporary art fair Art Santa Fe. The fair was held for the first time in Santa Fe’s new “green” Convention Center just off the central plaza. Art Santa Fe is an annual juried event that brings together the work of contemporary artists in all media from galleries in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the United States.

In January my work was featured in the Susan Spiritus Gallery space at the Fine Art Dealers Association’s LOS ANGELES ART SHOW. It’s an annual juried event that brings together 110 galleries, both domestic and international, exhibiting work from all genres and periods—“from Rembrandt to Ruscha” as LAAS says in their description of the fair. It takes place in the downtown Los Angeles Convention Center. Read the rest of this entry »
My traveling exhibit, “Robert Turner: Rare Places in a Rare Light” was hosted most recently by The G2 Gallery in Venice, California. It ran from September 22 through November 8, 2009. The gallery opened in March of 2008 in the bustling Abbot Kinney District in this beach community south of Santa Monica. My pictures showed very nicely in their space. Read the rest of this entry »
My traveling exhibit Robert Turner: Rare Places in a Rare Light opened April 10th at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in the museum’s John Bunker Sands Gallery.

Together they examine and interpret the human and natural history of the American West. Read the rest of this entry »
