If you happen to be visiting New York in early October, or if you live here locally, then you should definitely mark you calendar for the ‘Affordable Art Fair’. This year marks the fourth fall edition hosted by our own fair city. Over 16,000 attendees purchased over $4 million worth of artwork at the Spring 2013 edition, and the fall Fair promises to again deliver a smartly curated showcase of original contemporary art within reach of the everyday New Yorker.
Showing in 15 cities internationally this year, the Affordable Art Fair fosters a relaxed and enjoyable environment where a diverse array of affordable contemporary art is available to purchase and take home the same day. Returning to the historic waterfront Tunnel, one of the most recognizable buildings in West Chelsea, the fall edition will feature over 50 galleries. While the majority of exhibiting galleries will be from the United States, about 40% of the Fair will be comprised of international galleries, all showing original paintings, prints, sculptures and photographs with priced from $100 – $10,000, with the majority of work priced under $5,000.
“We are very excited to be back at the Tunnel for another fall edition. We are ready to welcome back our patrons and greet new visitors with a wide variety of art created by amazing talent that spans the globe,” says Affordable Art Fair Director, Cristina Salmastrelli. “We are confident both art enthusiasts and novices alike will find work they connect with and leave with something new for their home, office or special place.”
