Description: Contemporary Art Fair NYC, American Fine Craft Show NYC and Art Off the Main will fill the light-saturated Javits Center North with the work of some 200 artists and artisans October 25, 26 and 27, 2013. “For the first time we are inviting additional artists to hang individual artworks--paintings and photography--in a gallery at the entrance to the show,” said Richard Rothbard, owner of American Art Marketing, who with his wife Joanna Rothbard, founded and produces the juried New York City fall event, in its fourth year.
“Visitors to our three-day celebration of art and craft will feel as though they’ve toured an oversized gallery on the Hudson--we’re inspired by those in Chelsea or Williamsburg, Brooklyn,” said Rothbard. “They will see the fresh efforts of artists whose work they might never otherwise view and invest in their finest offerings,” he added. “To this end, we also plan to invite an art advisor to conduct tours and to counsel those who welcome guidance. Simultaneously, we give artists—both established and emerging--a range of exhibition options and a chance for an international audience to appreciate and purchase their work.” “Treats will trick out this event the weekend before Halloween,” said Rothbard. “We’re also inviting children to install their artwork and will award prizes.” Painters, photographers, sculptors and artists working in mixed media at the Art Fair join artisans exhibiting fashion, jewelry and accessories as well as furniture, ceramics, glass, wood, metal and textiles at the Craft Show. Art Off the Main, launched by Loris Crawford, showcases paintings, drawings, graphics, sculpture and installations by artists of Caribbean, African and Latin American ancestry. The Rothbards, who have directed art fairs and craft shows for 30+ years, also produce two annual Berkshires Arts Festivals in July and the Sarasota Craft Show in December.
