Affordable Art Fair NYC Returns to Celebrate Its 30th Edition

September 22, 2021 @ 6:00 PM - September 26, 2021 @ 6:00 PM

Affordable Art Fair NYC will return to the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea this Fall for its 30th edition in the city. Here, visitors can find an inspiring and friendly atmosphere to browse thousands of original contemporary paintings, sculptures, photographs, and prints showcased by a myriad of local, national, and international exhibitors. With contemporary artwork from more than 400 established artists and rising stars, and price points ranging from $100 — $10,000, there is something to suit every taste and budget whether you’re a first-time buyer or a seasoned collector. With two fair editions held annually, Affordable Art Fair NYC is the ideal family day or creative evening with friends.

With one edition already under its belt within the world of COVID’s “new normal”, the fair has lined up a boutique roster of over 60 local, national, and international exhibitors. A handpicked selection of both new and returning exhibitors, artists and partners will set up booths across the Metropolitan Pavilion from September 23rd through the 26th, offering a safe layout for patrons to peruse, shop and discover contemporary art around every corner.

Affordable Art Fair NYC will open its doors to visitors on the evening of September 22nd with its Private View, the signature and exclusive first look into the fair. Committed to making the 5-day experience as safe as possible, the fair aims to deliver a fun, art-filled weekend while maintaining compliance with the protocols and mandates of New York City, the New York State health departments, the CDC, and the WHO. Details are shared via the fair’s Safe Fair Policies page.

In honor of its 30th edition, Affordable Art Fair NYC will bring back popular late-night events and special hours, such as Art After Dark, the “after-hours” soiree for adults on Thursday, September 23rd, and Stroller Hours, the family-friendly hour dedicated to parents and little ones, with doors opening before the public for a hassle-free shopping experience on Saturday, September 25th and Sunday, September 26th from 10am – 11am. In addition, we’ll bring back our Trade Hours on Friday, September 24th free for interior designers and decorators, architects, art consultants and their clients, to explore thousands of artworks while engaging with our galleries on a professional level like never before at Affordable Art Fair NYC Fall.

“For nearly 21 years we have provided a platform for the very latest in affordable, contemporary art to be showcased in a fun and accessible atmosphere,” says Vanessa Seis, Director of Affordable Art Fair NYC. “As Affordable Art Fair NYC enters its 30th edition, we are excited to present the fair everyone knows and loves, all in an continually updated environment following COVID-safety measures and guidelines.”
