Part 2: Affordable Art Fair Features Work by Emerging and Established Artists

NEW YORK—Galleries from across the United States, Canada, London and beyond are showcasing fine art by emerging and established artists at the Affordable Art Fair. There are amazing large-scale portraits by Phuong Quac Tri at ArtBlue Studio of Singapore. A compelling life-size portrait on a fire door by Chuck Tingley at 464 Gallery of Buffalo, N.Y. A wall of mini ceramic, expressive faces by Johan Thunell at Villa Del Arte Galleries of Barcelona, Spain. At the Alicia David booth, Tim Garwood’s colorful work is executed by strategically pouring and pooling paint on the reverse of a pane of glass. And shown above, “Passage III,” 2011 (oil, paint, emulsion, plaster, earth, ash, fire, water, model figurines and pigment on canvas) by Clinton DeMenezes at Bicha Gallery of London.

The selection is wide-ranging and the “affordable” prices range from several hundred to several thousand dollars. The Affordable Art Fair New York runs from April 18 to April 22, 2012 at 7 West 34th Street, near Fifth Avenue.
