New Jersey's Art FairNovember 12-14, 2021
ART FAIR 14C is an initiative of Art House Productions, 501(c)(3) non-profit.
As New Jersey’s only art fair we provide support and growth opportunity for artists and small and medium sized galleries. With more than 50 exhibitors from our area and around the world, ART FAIR 14C highlights New Jersey as an exciting destination for high quality art.
Art Fair 14C is strengthening and supporting the visual arts
Through the staging of the art fair, we provide support and growth opportunity to small and medium sized galleries from around the world, as well as expand opportunities for visual artists from New Jersey, without the usual high price for entry.
What makes Art Fair 14C unique?
Art Fair 14C is not just an event – it’s a program. The fair itself is integral to our mission, helping make the visual arts a viable living for artists and art dealers.
Art fairs have become incredible engines for art sales—recent data has art fairs accounting for nearly half of all global art sales—but the art fair model, where booths can cost tens of thousands of dollars, is an often an unaffordable one for small and medium sized galleries, and inaccessable for arts organizations and individual artists.
Our mission is to help professionals in the visual arts, whether artists, dealers or advisors, sustain their careers. We help broaden their audience and develop partnerships and opportunities, and we provide a platform for art sales.

Although we welcome exhibitors from around the world, we remain a New Jersey focused non-profit – it’s in our name, a wink to the old “what exit?” joke about Jersey, and it’s integral to our operations. Each edition of Art Fair 14C includes The Juried Show, an exhibition for artists from New Jersey. We also routinely travel the state, visiting and highlighting the galleries, arts organizations and artists of Jersey.
In a nutshell, our mission is to:
– strengthen art galleries and businesses
– increase opportunities for artists
– expand public access to fine art
– enhance New Jersey’s reputation as a leading arts destination
