It's not Miami Art Basel Week or Armory Show Week but the Fine Art Print Fair and TEFAF are creating an art fair stir this weekend in New York City. Add in satellite art fairs and an uptown gallery event and the making for a manageable art fair week in New York City has just arrived. Taken together, the art fairs and a gallery weekend uptown provides plenty of opportunity to examine art through a variety of lens. Both are designed to coincide with auctions held at Christie's and Sotheby's this week.
The Fine Art Print Fair will be held October 26 to 29, 2017 at the River Pavilion at the Javits Center in Chelsea. The art fair opens with a benefit preview on Wednesday night and opens to the public on Thursday, October 26, 2017. The Javits Center is a new location for the fair. The 2017 edition features 82 art dealers from old masters to contemporary ones plus publishers of contemporary editions.
