Whether you are looking to collect or just want to check out new up-and-comers, the Affordable Art Fair is a refreshing alternative to art happenings in New York. Their motto this year is “I Am #ArtHappy” and they certainly provide plenty of reasons for visitors to be just that. Between the mass influx of sculpture and the emergence of playful original media, any collector, new and old will leave the fair #ArtHappy.
So if you’re in the city for Fashion Week, the latest gallery openings, or a bagel at Murray’s – be sure to check out these few galleries at the Affordable Art Fair at the Chelsea Metropolitan Pavilion.
