Features at our spring 2015 edition
In addition to a plethora of original, contemporary art for purchase, the fair offers several fabulous features to make your visit even more enjoyable!
2015 Spring Amazon Art Artist-in-Residence
Piero Manrique is our spring 2015 Artist-in-Residence! Due to its popularity last fall, Amazon Art has come back to sponsor another brilliant artist! Originally from Peru, Piero emigrated to New York City when he was 13. Since he didn’t speak any English when he moved here, our Artist-in-Residence depended on his art to help him communicate with the community and people around him. Art became an integral part of his life and we are happy that he was able to make a career of his talent! Piero will be making art in the Amazon Art Lounge on Level Two at the Metropolitan Pavilion. Stop by and engage with the artist during the times listed below:
Wednesday, March 25: 7-10pm (Private View)
Thursday, March 26: 12-4pm (Public Hours); 8-10pm (AAF After Dark)
Friday, March 27: 12-4pm (Public Hours); 6:30-8pm (Free Admission)
Saturday, March 28: 12-1:30pm; 4-8pm (Public Hours)
Sunday, March 29: 1:30-5pm (Public Hours)
Don’t miss out on meeting our incredibly talented Artist-in-Residence!
