Parallax Art Fair: New York

Hannah Kasper

Parallax is the Art Fair that I participated in London (you can read my post about my experience at  The Art Fair came to SoHo in New York and I decided to check it out yesterday.

Here are some thoughts, not as a participating artist but as the audience...

  • The location was a good choice (Hester near Spring).  There are lots of tourists in that area and street artists... but yeah, the art scene there ended a long time ago
  • The exhibition space was perfect, albeit a bit too large and under utilized.  But it was beautiful... wooden floors, old brick walls, and black painted ceilings with ducts and pipes
  • The season was wrong... but Parallax plans on having another art fair in November (a better month than August for art)
  • Again, about half of the art was decorative and the other half I suppose is what you call Fine Art
  • There was a greater number of interesting art works at this exhibition than the one in London
  • As far as I know there were no speakers at the fair like there was in London... it would serve the visiting or traveling artists well to have a number of local artists, critics, gallery dealers, or educators speak at the event
  • The fair seems to have developed a few groupies... I noticed a few artists that also showed in London

Here are the big winners at and around Parallax AF...
