Marketing and Communications Associate
Joining the Affordable Art Fair team in 2013 as a Fair Assistant, Elizabeth hasn’t looked back since. While she enjoys assisting with production and performing odd jobs at our fairs, Elizabeth has found her calling in marketing. With a degree in Art History and a love for Early Italian Renaissance, she has a real passion for art and is enjoying discovering the world of contemporary art.

In her free time Elizabeth is usually spending her days with friends and family, and completing more home-improvement projects than she can count! A lover of travel, she currently has Asia set in her sights and can’t wait to start exploring that corner of the world like a true backpacker.

Graduating in 2013 with a B.A. from James Madison University, Caitlin majored in Communication Studies with a minor in Writing and Rhetoric. She loves large-scale installations, weekends in New Jersey, and her home in the East Village!
