It was ok. The admission process was easy. The parking was easy. The exhibition was not very large. One could easily see it all in less than 1 hour. The art was so-so.

Compared to last year's show, this year's Art LA Contemporary wasn't as strong. I didn't feel the offerings were as cutting edge. Perhaps they have outgrown the Santa Monica Barker Hangar and need to relocate to a larger venue so that they can...continued

I can't believe how bad this show was. Looked like a bunch of kids works. A few really good pieces, but all in all a waste of $20 each.
Last month went downtown to the International Art show and it was great! Ten times larger and with real art....continued

I learned that I am not a fan of Contemporary Art.. So it was a "learning" experience. It reminded me of the W.C. Fields quote, "There's a sucker born every minute". My favorite piece of "art" was "Happy Cat"

I was disappointed in the exhibit. I thought that there was too much abstract art and sculpture, not enough that was recognizable to me.

The art was too extreme for me. Really didn't see anything I thought was either beautiful or clever. All the pieces felt like the artists were trying too hard. I wouldn't go again.

This event should have been renamed the CONTEMPTporary. The art was (mostly) shown with no mention of the artist's name, when it was painted and the medium used. You might think the people manning the booths could help you with that. But then they...continued

I was surprised at to how small the venue was. I was to dtla art expo and that was 10 times bigger. There was no lounge area therefore every seat in the cafeteria was taken. My friend and I had to eat standing up with no table.

Having never been to this show, and not knowing what to expect it ended up to be not my taste in art; most of it much to ambiguous. I don't get much from a blob of paint in the middle of a piece of cement.

The additional word 'fair' implied a broader display of items that could include ceramics, fabrics and possibly jewelry. There was some sculpture but only one ceramic display. The paintings ran the gamut from weird to great depending on one's...continued

It was inspiring to see the hard work people are willing to do to create art. Not in love with a lot that I saw but very interesting nonetheless.

This was smaller than a previous year that I went. Glad I didn't pay full price. Was a pain to also pay $10 for parking.

This was our 2nd year attending the show. There was plenty of parking. The booth setup was very viewer friendly. The showing was great; style, variety, and plenty to spark the curiosity. It was also very original. I didn't recognize any of the...continued
