NYC art fairs come in spring and fall. Contemporary art fairs cluster around Frieze Week in May and Armory Week in September. Antiques and Old Masters cluster around the Winter Show in January. The Art Show by ADAA represents America’s top galleries.
Art fairs make a really fun date. The art is great and the people-watching is great. Many fairs support community organizations through their previews.
