About

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

Although the annual art fair in Jersey City in November is the centerpiece, our mission to support the visual arts and artists continues year round, and in 2022 will expand to Utah through a partnership with ART NOW FAIR SALT LAKE.

MISSION:

– Increase opportunities for artists
– Strengthen smaller art galleries and businesses
– Expand public access to fine art
– Enhance New Jersey’s reputation as a leading arts destination


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.

Unique to Art Fair 14C, and of central importance to our mission, is The Juried Show, which is for New Jersey-based artists at Art Fair 14C, and for Utah-based artists at ART NOW FAIR.

Artists selected to The Juried Show are given a central showcase during both Art Fair 14C and ART NOW FAIR, and offered further exhibition opportunities throughout the year.

The 1st edition of ART NOW FAIR SALT LAKE will be held March 31-April 3 at Mountain Expo Center.

The 4th edition of Art Fair 14C will be held November 11-13, 2022 at the Glass Gallery at Mana Contemporary.

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.
