The Artist Project New York is running March 17-20, 2011 at Pier 92 in New York City. This exhibition of fine art by a selection of unrepresented international artists makes its debut in New York City.
Whether one is buying one's first work of art or is a seasoned collector, visitors can meet face-to-face the emerging and established talent of The Artist Project New York. Sensations in regional art capitals around the world, these 150+ artists converge for their first major showing in New York City.
Unlike art fairs that only allow art galleries to exhibit, The Artist Project provides artists with the opportunity to reach the contemporary art world directly in spaces that maintain gallery and museum-like production values with state-of-the-art exhibition walls, lights and generous public spaces.
Chicago artists are also participating in The Artist Project NY. "Given the importance of the fine art market in Chicago, we are pleased to bring the works of Chicago-area artists to New York City. Each of these self-representing artists will present and sell a wide array of fine art at the March fair," said Reed McMillan, show director, The Artist Project New York.
