The work of these artists on the cusp of discovery are now on display -through Novemebr 25th, 2016-in one of New York City’s most enchanting venues — The National Arts Club-a historic limestone townhouse right on Gramercy Park.

 Tickets available at Eventbrite or at This year part of our ticket proceeds will be donated to Friends of Materials for the Arts.

The Accessible Art Fair New York is a departure from conventional art fairs. The objective is to bring talented emerging and mid-career artists — unknown and often unrepresented — in direct contact with art collectors, art world professionals, and the general public. It’s an opportunity for everyone to discover new talent and break down barriers between artists and collectors, all within a high-end and friendly environment”.
