Our name is a wink to the “what exit?” joke about New Jersey, but we take our Jersey-centric nonprofit mission seriously.  We work to strengthen and support artists and arts organizations and businesses, particularly in our home state.

Although the autumn annual art fair in Jersey City is the centerpiece, our mission to support the visual arts and artists continues year round.


– Increase opportunities for artists
– Expand public access to fine art
– Strengthen careers in the visual arts
– Activate under-recognized art regions

The annual fair provides a showcase for hundreds of artists from New Jersey, New York and around the world, giving area art lovers exposure to a wide variety of visual arts, of all kinds and for all budgets.

Our nonprofit model is an art fair that reduces the barriers for access to the art world, for both visitor and exhibitor.  Our subsidized exhibition booths are offered at cost or below cost, allowing smaller galleries, as well as non-traditional exhibitors, the opportunity to gain art fair experience at a fraction of the usual cost.

Unique to Art Fair 14C, and of central importance to our mission, is The Showcase, which is for New Jersey-based artists.

The 5th edition of Art Fair 14C will be held in fall of 2023 in Jersey City.

Art Fair 14C is able to fulfill its nonprofit mission to support and strengthen all parts of the visual arts ecosystem through donations and sponsorship.

open . equitable . affordable .

The world of fine art can seem inaccessible, abstruse and elitist, filled with language, codes and rules that can feel inexplicable.

ART FAIR 14C is located in Jersey City, one of America’s most diverse municipailities—accessible, open and egalitarian. The most frequent comment we hear about our fairs is about the great energy at the Fair—a weekend of fun, with extraordinary and surprising art to explore around every corner.
