(New York, NY) – The Affordable Art Fair New York City. Shaking up the dusty model of art as an elite pass time, the Affordable Art Fair Fall 2011 will showcase new artists, galleries, programming, and installations! With the immense success of last year’s inaugural fall installment, and the record breaking attendance and sales of the Spring fair, the Affordable Art Fair NYC Fall edition, September 22-25, 2011 at 7W New York (7 West 34th Street), is sure to be a must attend event.
The Affordable Art Fair celebrates the idea that art is for everyone. Whether you are an experienced collector or an art novice, this fair is about the joy and excitement that art should bring to your life. By presenting contemporary art priced from $100 - $10,000, with three-quarters of the work under $5,000, no one looking to own art should leave the fair empty handed. At this edition, the fair will present nearly 65 international and national galleries exhibiting original paintings, sculptures, photographs, and prints.
“We cannot wait for our fall fair to open as it is looking to be even better than our spring edition, which was amazing” says Judith Pineiro, Director of Affordable Art Fair NYC and LA. “With a terrific group of galleries at the fair, we have a great balance of new exhibitors and returning ones. What our visitors will find thrilling is that we are presenting an entirely new roster of artists from our spring edition.”

Affordable Art Fair Past and Present
Twelve years ago, Will Ramsay changed the model of the traditional art fair by creating the Affordable Art Fair, where contemporary art is accessible to all. Now in nine locations around the world, Affordable Art Fair proves that you do not need to be an art expert or a billionaire to have original works of art by living artists in your home or office. With the fair taking place annually in Amsterdam, Bristol, Brussels, London (spring and fall), Melbourne, Milan, New York (spring and fall), North London, Singapore, and Sydney, over $270 million worth of art has been sold at the fairs. The success of the brand continues with the estimated millionth visitor to the Affordable Art Fair expected in 2011.
