The Art on Paper fair is coming back to Pier 36 in downtown Manhattan in September 2022. This fair will feature over 100 galleries with a focus on paper-based art. This medium-driven event has been producing innovative and powerful projects, making it an important destination in New York City for artists and collectors alike. Here are a few ways you can attend the art fair.
Art fairs are popular, but they’re also incredibly choosy about who can participate. Many new and emerging artists are overlooked in favour of more established artists because they can’t afford the high participation fees. However, you can still participate if you work with an established gallery that can help you promote your art after the art fair ends.
Selling art can be a stressful process, so it’s important to follow some basic rules to make it as easy as possible. First of all, make sure you don’t crowd your booth with too much artwork. Make room for passersby to browse and chat with you. Also, be sure not to apply to too many art fairs – only apply to those that fit your style.
Secondly, make sure your business card is professional and eye-catching. While some people may want to chat with you and ask you questions, others may prefer to peruse the artwork at their own pace. Make sure your art fair booth is geared towards people who are interested in art and are willing to spend time looking through it.
