A Night at the Affordable Art Fair - New York City

The Affordable Art Fair in New York City starts today - April 4 and runs through Sunday, April 7.  It's free Friday night too from 6-8pm if you haven't had a chance to purchase tickets.  All pieces range in price from $100 to $10,000, with something for everyone!  Go and find a piece to fall in love with.

We go because it's only once a year can you see unique (and affordable!) beautiful stunning pieces of art from galleries all across the world under one roof in NYC.  You get to buy artwork directly from the galleries at the art fair and they have a vast wealth of knowledge of each piece they represent.  You can also practice your Japanese, French and Spanish while you're there too, with many gallery reps from Quebec, South America, Belgium, Japan, and even Vietnam.

You can also spend the whole day at the fair without going hungry; the Cool Haus Ice Cream Sandwich truck is parked outside, and inside the fair, sandwiches and coffee is available for sale as well.

If you can't make it or just want a preview of the fair, below are some photos we took last night.  We fell in love with many many pieces within 30 minutes.
