Entering into its 15th year in New York, Affordable Art Fair NYC returns on March 30, with 70 local, national and international galleries showcasing original works from more than 500 artists. The Fair, celebrating its 21st edition in the Big Apple, offers a varied collection of art priced from $100 to $10,000, with more than half of the works priced under $5,000. This coming Spring Fair welcomes both new and returning galleries, fresh artwork and engaging tours, all in a relaxed and inspiring atmosphere.
Newcomers include galleries such as Galerie D’Este (Montreal, Canada), Vula Amehlo Art Development (Johannesburg, South Africa), Lee Ban Lu Gallery (Singapore, Singapore) and Soraya Cartategui Fine Arts (Madrid, Spain and New York, NY), which will bring a fresh energy and perspective to Chelsea’s Metropolitan Pavilion. Various returning exhibitors such as Will’s Art Warehouse (London, UK), Beaux-arts des Ameriques (Montreal, Canada), and The Tolman Collection of Tokyo (New York, NY) will continue to enthrall with their amazing stable of artists.
“The variety of artworks and mediums we show and how we share them with our visitors is what really differentiates us from other art fairs,” says Cristina Salmastrelli, Director of the spring Affordable Art Fair NYC. “Communication and education is key for us. We want each visitor to walk away from the Fair having learned something new about their love for art and its contemporary market, not to mention, a new piece of art!”
Spring Fair highlights include the Personal Shopping Experience with Salmastrelli, which also launched as a year-round initiative this January, as well as the Recent Graduate Exhibition curated by Danielle Durchslag presenting Delano Dunn. As always, The Fair continues to be an interactive platform for programming events and workshops for all ages, furthering the notion that Affordable Art Fair NYC provides something for everyone. This spring, visitors are encouraged to engage with artists, galleries and industry experts through The Fair’s Sofa Sessions, where visitors can ask contemporary artists any and every question in a salon style setting.
The Affordable Art Fair celebrates the idea that art is for everyone. Since its launch in 1999, over 1.6M people have visited an Affordable Art Fair, and over $367M in art has been sold at the Fairs. A global brand, the Fair now takes place in Amsterdam, Bristol, Brussels, Hamburg, Hong Kong, London, Milan, New York, Seoul, Singapore and Stockholm.
