In addition to a plethora of original, contemporary art for purchase, our spring fair offered several fabulous features to make your visit even more enjoyable!
Fall 2015 features
The Shantell Martin experience
Affordable Art Fair NYC was thrilled to welcome internationally acclaimed visual artist Shantell Martin to our fall edition. Shantell is expanding conventional definitions of drawing and animation to transform visual experience in the design, fashion and music industries. We indulged in Shantell’s creative process, as she transformed our Affordable Art Fair programming lounge, from floor to ceiling, into a wholly immersive art experience with her signature style.
Young talent exhibition
Our Young Talent Exhibition invited you to explore the identifiable visual style of emerging artist Boy Kong. Inspired by Surrealism, Ukiyo-e, graffiti art, and animal folklore, Kong’s works take elements of each influence and combines them with vibrant color and movement. Curated by Avi Gitler, director of Gitler &_____, whose mission is to showcase rising artists from around the world.
Silent auction, healing action
Affordable Art Fair NYC was proud to host Silent Auction, Healing Action benefiting our Official Non-Profit Partner, Art Therapy Outreach Center (ATOC). A selection of gallery-donated works were on display for the entirety of the fair.
