Artist Testimonials


  • "I'd have to say this NYC show is really off to a great start. The 2nd year was like a show from the good old days when it was worth the trip! The buyers were from all over, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I look forward to a 3rd year."
    Valerie Bunnell | MA | Mixed Media

  • "The javits show worked out for me, i think it has a lot of potential, just keep the quality up and the show will take care of itself."
    Woodrow Nash | OH | Sculpture

  • "This show has a lot going for it. Great venue and easier load-in than anticipated, a profitable time of year, a hard-working promoter who knows how to get the job done, the price is right and the location - it's New York City!! Only two years in and the public is responding, a small crowd but one that is buying. Using my mailing list helped my sales. I believe that the crowd will grow and the show will flourish."
    Loretta Lam | NY | Jewelry

  • "The quality of the artists' work was even stronger this year, and once again I had multiple pieces sell. In addition, I had two gallery owners come through and offer me solo shows to exhibit my work in areas I would not have otherwise considered. This show remains one the best values for an independent artist to show work in NYC in an art fair setting."
    Bob Clyatt | NY | Sculpture
