INSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLICATION

The application for the 4th Edition of Art Fair 14C is now open – link below.

If you are a new applicant, you will have to register for an account and create a password – this will allow you to go back into the application and edit or amend your application, even after you have submitted it, up until the deadline of July 5, 2022.

There is a single application link, but two different application category options:

  • Exhibition Booth
  • The Showcase (NJ artists only)

Once you choose your category you will be asked to answer several questions and upload images – there is a minimum requirement of 3 images for each application, with a maximum of 20.

The application fee will be collected at the end of the application. Application fees:

  • Exhibition Booth ($40)
  • The Showcase ($25)

There is no combination application this year – those eligible for both categories must fill out the applications seperately.  Please note that any individual artist who is selected for both an exhibition booth and The Showcase will have to choose, this year we are not permitting artists to do both.

We’re also offering exhibition space for artwork by veterans and active duty members of the military or reserve.  See below for information.

 

EXHIBITION BOOTHS 

For its 4th Edition, Art Fair 14C is moving to a new and larger space.  The Jersey City Armory is 46,000 sq feet of column-free exhibition space, with 50 foot ceilings.

Art Fair 14C is unique among art fairs, with a nonprofit mission to increase opportunities for artists, expand access to fine art and strengthen careers in the visual arts.  To fulfill that mission, Art Fair 14C offers exhibition booths substantially below cost.

All walls are 10′ high and $93 per linear foot in width.
We can also accommodate requests for larger or custom booth sizes.
small:
2 walls: 8′ x 10′ $1,674
(8 are available at discounted price of $900 for those who cannot afford full price)
medium:
2 walls: 14′ 14′ – $2,604
3 walls: 10′ x 10′ x 10′ – $2,790
3 walls: 10′ x 12′ x 10′ – $2,976
large:
3 walls: 10′ x 20′ x 10′ – $3,720
x-large:
4 walls: 30′ x 20′ x 10′ x 10′ – $6,510

 

Art Fair 14C welcomes all exhibitor applicants – because we recognize that the traditional brick-and-mortar gallery model no longer describes the entire fine art ecosytem, we deliberately cast a wide net. In the past we’ve had everything from established Chelsea galleries to brand new web-based galleries, as well as arts organizations, residency programs, individual artists, groups of artists, university MFA programs, and even another art fair. Our exhibitors have come from Europe, South America and Asia, as well as NYC and all parts of New Jersey.

There is an application fee of $40. Applicants who are not selected will receive four complimentary day passes to Art Fair 14C.

THE SHOWCASE 

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

Once artists have been selected by our panel of judges – we are anticipating 40 artists again this year – Art Fair 14C’s Executive Director Robinson Holloway will conduct studio visits with each artist to help curate an individual exhibition space at the fair.

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

Showcase 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 two complimentary day passes to Art Fair 14C.

 

VETERAN & MILITARY ARTISTS 

Art Fair 14C is pleased to offer exhibition space at the Armory during the 4th Edition for artwork by veterans as well as active duty military and reserve members.  

The exhibition will be curated by Ivy Brown of Ivy Brown Gallery.  

Deadline to apply is September 5, 2022 – there is no fee to apply, and no fees or commissions associated with exhibiting.  Application form is here
