Location: Javits Center, New York City
Date: November 19-21, 2010
Booth fee: $390 for a 10 x 10, larger booths available
Spaces still available
This one really has me puzzled. When you consider how much booth fees cost for most locations in the country, most quality events hovering around at least $500, it makes me wonder why this event isn't full.
Add in that it is in New York City, where "those in the know" go to buy their art (don't tell me you don't know about people who wouldn't buy art at a local art fair), at an excellent and accessible exhibition space (check out the Javits Center), with affordable accommodations nearby, and an experienced artist-friendly promoter...???
Aren't art fairs supposed to be about "business?" You add up the expenses, look at the venue, and make a guess about what it is going to cost. It seems to me that anyone who lives at least as near as Columbus, OH, could be in the City and out again for a most reasonable amount.

Can you tell me why you haven't applied?

There is no need to be afraid to do an event in NYC. I've done a number of events in the city and have never had a problem.
I am wondering if the $390 10' x 10' booths are in the main room, or, in another adjacent room? I looked at the layout and it wasn't totally clear.
Frankly the entire deal would have been over and done with if I had other dates as I am running up against the Washington Craft Show, Paradise City and Gathersburg.. The high end artists have their shows.. Since there are no dates available at Javits I made the choice to do the show. And, if you take a look you will what a fine show it is.. Hey Connie,
thanks for bringing the show to your midwest artist friends. It looks like we shall find out how it goes.. I do know this. The marketing for the show will be be substantial and
NY is HOT !! I am opening my 4th Gallery in the city November 1.
After NYC is over we are on to Sarasota for the American Craft Show which is now accepting fine art and has room for 10 more artists. Fabulous show, buyers who have followed the show for the 16 years is was run by the ACC until I took it last year.
Please don't tell me that you are burnt out.. :) Oh.. I do still exhibit my work in my shows..
None of these shows are juried by check so the fact that a show may have gotten as many applications as spaces doesn't mean anything until the application deadline and the jurying to choose who will be accepted.

The quality is very high.. I think that everyone should look at the two sites.
americancraftshownyc and contemporaryaryfairnyc.. It is pretty amazing to me that there are 150 or so Vendor/artists paying $2500 to be in the " One of A Kind Show " in NYC.. Which of course has nothing to do with work being classified as OAK!
Peter - they are accepting photographers or at least that is a category on their application.
