(New  York,  NY)  –  On  September  9,  2015,  Affordable Art Fair NYC steps into its 20th edition,  expecting  to  attract  over  19,000  visitors with more than 70 local, national and international galleries. Located in one of New York’s  most  popular  entertainment  venues  and nestled in the heart of Chelsea, the Fair is once  again  the  vehicle  that  drives  a  relaxed,  creative and engaging atmosphere for galleries  to  showcase  the  work  of  their  most  coveted artists.

At  each  edition,  Affordable  Art  Fair  offers  a  fresh and evolving selection of art, priced from  $100  to  $10,000  (with  more  than  half  the works priced under $5,000). Now in its 14th  year  in  New  York,  the  fall  fair  aims  to provide  not  only  a  diverse  selection  of  contemporary  art,  but  also  a  schedule  of  complimentary talks, programs, and educational workshops to create a well-­‐rounded experience.

Of  the  72  galleries  exhibiting  at  the  fall  edition,  seven  are  returning  for  their  seventh  year at the Affordable Art Fair: Quantum Contemporary Art (London, UK), Villa del Arte Galleries  (Amsterdam,  Netherlands/Barcelona,  Spain),  Envie  D’Art  Gallery  (Paris,  France), DECORAZONgallery (Dallas, TX/London, UK), Artêria (Bromont, Canada), New Grounds  Gallery  (Albuquerque,  NM),  and  Emmanuel  Fremin  Gallery  (New  York,  NY),  which often exhibits the work of musicians-­‐turned-­‐artists such as Julian Lennon (son of Beatle,  John  Lennon)  and  Moby.

Newcomers  such  as  Taseer  Art  Gallery  (Lahore,  Pakistan), DEMEDICIS GALLERY (Paris, France), and Maria Goldena (Riga, Latvia) will infuse the Fair with a new energy and perspective. Manifold Editions (London, UK)  brings  work  by  Anish  Kapoor  and  Damien  Hirst,  while  Sugarlift  (Brooklyn,  NY)  features up-­‐and-­‐coming artists such as Lizzie Gill, artist creating the exclusive 2015 Affordable Art Fair Limited Edition Print.

“Affordable Art Fair NYC’s participating galleries bring all types of artists and art to the Fair, from emerging and famous, to photography, sculpture and traditional oil paintings, all at varying price points,” says Cristina Salmastrelli, Director of the Affordable Art Fair NYC. “This alone carries out our brand mission, truly making art available to everyone. Most of our galleries believe in this same basic principle, which is why it’s such an all-­‐encompassing experience.”

NEW Fall Programs:

The  fair  is  dedicated  to  incorporating  educational  programming  into  each  of  the  four  and a half days to make for a dynamic experience. The fair welcomes Kristina Nazarevskaia,  co-­‐founder  of galleryIntell  as  she  leads  a  panel  of  art  industry  experts  discussing the history of art appropriation. In addition, a panel discussion led by ProjectArt founder, Adarsh Alphons, will illustrate the integral importance of childhood art education and the impact it has on didactic development.

Other Fall Highlights:

Affordable  Art  Fair  NYC  expands  its  Personal  Shopping  Experience  to  a  year-­‐round  service; Boy Kong, this edition’s Young Talent Exhibition Artist, transforms the entrance of the Fair with his tiger mural and all children are invited to “draw outside the lines” during our family-­‐friendly programming (please inquire for further details on all of the above).
