Artexpo New York offers consumers quality art, exposure for emerging artists
Artexpo NY, a 3 day event on Pier 94 in Manhattan, took place last weekend. This is a great event that promotes emerging artists. This year there were 148 artists and 215 galleries from 25 countries featuring their work at Artexpo New York, the oldest fine art trade show in the country.
The contemporary art event draws 10,000 people annually and offers collectors an alternative to such high-end shows like Art Basel in Miami and the Armory Show in New York for quality works from mid-career, moderately priced artists. Prices range from $500 to $100,000.
Notable artists who have benefited from exhibiting at the show include Andy Warhol, Peter Max, Robert Rauschenberg, Keith Haring and LeRoy Neiman, organizers said.
"It is the one venue that connects the greatest number of buyers and artists and where emerging artists have the best chance to be discovered," said Artexpo CEO Eric Smith. The artists "not only have the opportunity to meet collectors and consumers, but also gallery owners, interior designers and architects."
