2012 Contemporary Art Fair, American Craft Show NYC & Art Off The Main
New York's Fall art scene will stage under the same roof at the Javits Center from 19 to 21 October, three events that will bring to the public the artwork of nearly 250 artists and artisans occupying 70,000 square feet of space at the 2012 Contemporary Art Fair NYC, American Craft Show NYC and Art Off The Main.
The Contemporary Art Fair NYC will show the artwork of established and emerging painters, photographers, sculptors and artists working in mixed media, presenting itself as an opportunity to follow the work of your favourite artists, discover new ones and keep up with the contemporary art market.
At the American Craft Show NYC, visitors will be able to get in touch with the latest developments and creations in fashion, jewelry and accessories as well as furniture, ceramics, glass, wood, metal and textiles.
It will also be a moment to meet some of the artisans and discuss present and future trends.
Both the Contemporary Art Fair NYC and the American Craft Show NYC celebrate their third year and were launched by Richard and Joanna Rothbard of American Art Marketing, who have directed art fairs and craft shows for over 30 years.
This year marks the first time that the Art Off the Main joins the art fair and craft show.
Founded by Loris Crawford, owner of Savacou Fine Arts Gallery, and launched in 2004, and most recently in an online format, Art Off the Main is a showcase for paintings, drawings, graphics, sculpture and installations by artists of Caribbean, African and Latin American ancestry, featuring artists from 20 countries including the United States.
In a globalized world, art collectors are discovering new talents from emerging art markets, namely from Latin countries. Art Off the Main presents itself as a venue where to discover new names.
