About Art Off the Main, Crawford, said, ?This was the first fair to showcase combined works of Africa, the Caribbean, and Latin America, regions which share historical, ethnic and political experiences resulting in cultural expressions with common elements. The show, which presents a body of work not typically offered at an art fair, received positive response from media, critics and the public.?
