EXHIBITION BOOTHS 

For its 3rd Edition, Art Fair 14C has moved to a new location – The Glass Gallery at Mana Contemporary. The Glass Gallery is 30,000 sq feet of column-free exhibition space, with steel rafters 15′ off the ground.

Art Fair 14C is unique among art fairs, with a nonprofit mission to strengthen art galleries and expand opportunities for artists.  To fulfill that mission, Art Fair 14C offers exhibition booths substantially below cost.

Art Fair 14C welcomes all exhibitor applicants – in the past we’ve had everything from established Chelsea galleries to brand new web-based galleries, as well as arts organizations, individual artists, groups of artists, even a university art department. Our exhibitors have come from Europe, South America and Asia, as well as NYC and all parts of New Jersey.

Exhibition booths come in three size categories, all are $75 per linear foot, except for eight booths we have set aside for of $750* each, in recognition of recent hard times for artists and galleries.

Base price for a booth includes: 10’ height walls, lighting, a table with two chairs; does not include closet buildout or other supplemental walls, which are available for an additional $75 per linear foot.

SMALL:

two walls – 8’ by 10’ ($750* 8 units)

two walls – 8’ by 10’ (base price: $1350)

MEDIUM:

three walls – 10’ by 12’ by 10’ (base price $2400)

three walls – 12’ by 12’ by 12’ (base price: $2700)

LARGE:

three walls – 12’ x 22’ x 12’  (base price $3450)

three walls – 12’ x 22’ x 16’  (base price $3750)

four walls – 16’ x 22’ x 16’ x 16’ (base price $5250)

*the booths priced at $750 have been set aside for at least 8 applicants because the pandemic has had a disproportionate effect on the arts. Applicants requesting a discounted booth must answer a question on the application about the effects of the pandemic.  We are not looking for the saddest story, applicants who request the discount will be given it based on the total application score.  If we get a larger than expected number of applicants requesting the discount, we will work to increase the program.

THE JURIED SHOW 

A unique element of Art Fair 14C is The Juried Show, which is open to artists who live, or have a studio, in the state of New Jersey.

What’s different this year?
The Juried Show will also change with the venue – although fewer artists will be selected (estimate between 22 and 28), each artist will be able to show a minimum of three works of art.  Artists may upload up to 10 works of art on the Juried application.

Our strong preference is for artwork that is available for sale, but it is not a requirement for The Juried Show.  Art Fair 14C takes a 30% commission on all sales from the Juried Show during the week of the fair.

Juried Show artists also receive lifetime attendence to Art Fair 14C for themselves and a guest, as well as exhibition and residency opportunities during the rest of the year.

There is an application fee of $25. Artists who apply and are not selected for The Juried Show will receive 2 complimentary day passes to Art Fair 14C ($40 value).

Important: if you are an individual NJ artist planning to apply for an Exhibition Booth as well as The Juried Show, you can apply for both at the same time for a single fee of $40 ($60 after July 1st).
