Affordable Art Fair, New York

My gallery from Calgary, The Weiss Gallery, is showing at the AAF in New York. They are taking with them a good group of my monotypes and some encaustic on panel. If you are in the New York area at the end of September, you should try to attend this event. I think the concept of this fair is really interesting as it is a great place to see the work of younger artists and galleries who do their work in backing them up. Usually fairs are so expensive that galleries will display their big names; in this case the whole purpose is to do the opposite and promote works that are not priced over the top. I will be driving down to attend the opening night, visit the fair and see some art in New York. If you want to attend and save on the ticket, the fair is open for free on Friday night October 1st from 6 pm to 8 pm. Making art accessible is their moto.
