Art Fair 14C returns November 11-13

(JERSEY CITY, NJ) -- New Jersey’s largest visual arts event, Art Fair 14C, returns for its 4th Edition from November 11-13, 2022, at the historic Armory located at 678 Montgomery Street, Jersey City, New Jersey. The non-profit organization creates opportunities for artists, expands the public's accessibility to the fine arts, and strengthens Jersey City as an arts hub destination while engaging with tens of thousands of visitors.

“Art Fair 14C was created as an answer to the question of how to help people in the visual arts make a living. Art fairs produce sales and provide connections and opportunities beyond just selling art – and our artists and galleries have been mostly shut out. So, it seemed obvious: start an art fair in New Jersey,” said Executive Director of Art Fair 14C Robinson Holloway. "The fair has grown in size and quality every year, and for the 4th Edition we have thousands of incredible works of art from all genres, and at all price points."

The non-profit’s low participation cost creates an accessible and inclusive ecosystem for local artists and galleries in New Jersey, connecting them with the broader public to activate additional interest and engagement in the visual arts. The Arts and Cultural Production Satellite Account (ACPSA) is a partnership between the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Office of Research & Analysis and the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). It reports New Jersey ranks third in the country for economic impact. Arts and value-added cultural production account for 3.4% of the state’s total gross product, creating over 119,619 jobs and accounting for over $20 billion of the state’s economy.

Since the non-profit started, participating artists have sold over $1 million in art at the event which is New Jersey’s only international art fair.  Through their hands-on efforts, the fair helps artists by setting up exhibition booths, showcasing work for exposure, and getting artists into other exhibits through their extensive network of art dealers, galleries, and arts organizations.

The dynamic 3-day event offers visitors and fellow artists many opportunities to participate, from daytime admissions to evening events such as date night, alongside guided tours. For the 2nd year in a row, Art Fair 14C acknowledges the actionable duties and service of veterans and military personnel by offering the public free admission on Friday, also recognized as Veterans Day. Veterans, active duty military, and reserve members will have a dedicated exhibition space to showcase their art and receive complimentary admission to Art Fair 14C Friday through Sunday during all public hours.

Jersey City Mayor Steven M. Fulop discussed the benefits of the non-profit's mission: “Jersey City has become a regional destination for arts and culture, and I’m incredibly grateful to be a part of this journey that continues to strengthen our burgeoning arts community with invaluable contributors like 14C. This event has grown every year, which speaks to the high caliber of our talented local artists showcased by 14C. I look forward to what this year’s event will bring.”

Kele McComsey, Director of Mana Contemporary, explained that “Mana Contemporary has always believed in the importance of building a strong arts community and is proud to support 14C in its efforts to highlight the local artists responsible for making Jersey City a cultural destination. The 14C Art Fair has shown everyone that you don’t have to look to the other side of the river to find talent – the burgeoning art scene is right here in New Jersey.”

Applications are now closed for this year’s 2022 Showcase, with all booths occupied by international exhibitors, arts organizations, Chelsea galleries, and artists specializing in different mediums. All winners of this year’s 2022 Showcase will receive a free exhibition booth at the 5th Edition of Art Fair 14C next year.

Tickets are now available to purchase. For more information on attending the 4th Edition of Art Fair 14C, visit https://artfair14c.com.
