Good news, art fairs are starting to come back for 2021. Bad news, Covid-19 is also becoming more active. In the past twelve months most if not all New York art fairs have been postponed or cancelled, that's the past, and now fairs are starting to schedule dates. We'll be adding information as it becomes available. We encourage you to visit art galleries, museums and non-profit art organizations to support them.

In this guide you'll find art fair basics and a link to each fair where you can find additional details. We're now including Social Media links when available, this will make it easier to see images from past art fairs and other information. Additional information will be added as the fairs start scheduling. Details like: a description of each fair, the exact location, who's exhibiting, tickets prices, hours, openings and special events. In addition to the art fairs, Manhattan offers some of the best museum and gallery exhibitions in the world. Listing of museums near bottom of guide.

With the United States starting to get back to normal we want you to know that will continue to provide community art guides as we have for the past 23 years. We do this because galleries, museums, non-profit art organizations, art fairs and artists are important. We urge you to support them whenever possible. Be sure to call or check websites any art venues before attempting to visit them and get vaccinated.

The Armory Show is New York City's premier art fair and a leading cultural destination for discovering and collecting the world's most important 20th and 21st century art. It features presentations by leading international galleries, innovative artist commissions, and dynamic public programs. Since its founding in 1994, The Armory Show has served as a nexus for the art world, inspiring dialogue, discovery, and patronage in the visual arts. It was founded by four New York gallerists - Colin de Land, Pat Hearn, Matthew Marks and Paul Morris - who sought a platform to present and promote new voices in the visual arts. In its 25 years, The Armory Show has stayed firm to its mission while establishing itself as an unmissable art event set in the heart of New York City. It has grown over the years and this year presents 178 exhibitors from 31 countries, with 30 galleries being first time exhibitors. They are presenting an expanded curatorial program. The Armory Show is now cashless, and payments at our box office will be processed by credit or debit cards.
