This guide is Online Year-around

Guide to New York art fairs.
Good news, the pandemic is slowing down and galleries and art fairs are 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. Until the fairs start opening we encourage you to visit galleries, a number of good exhibitions are featured in this guide.

The reopening of the United States is underway, and we want you to know that will continue to provide art guides as we have for the past 22 years. We do this because galleries, museums, non-profit art organizations, and artists are important. We urge you to support them whenever possible. COVID-19 is still a dangerous threat, so practice safe distancing, wash your hands and take other protective measures so that we can continue to open our country safely.

We sincerely hope that you, your family and friends will stay healthy during this time. Please take care of yourself, and think about how you might be inspired to help others. Be sure to call any art venues before attempting to visit 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 to make it easier to see pictures 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 museum near bottom of guide.

The Armory Show
Javits Center
New York, NY

September 9 - 12, 2021

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.
