INSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLICATION
The application for the 4th Edition of Art Fair 14C will be open later this winter.
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 as often as you want, up until the deadline of May 31, 2022.
There is a single application link, but two different application category options:
- Exhibition Booth
- Juried Show (NJ residents 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 for Exhibition Booths and 10 for the Juried Show.
The application fee will be collected at the end of the application. Application fees:
- Exhibition Booth ($40 early bird, $60 after May 1st)
- Juried Show (NJ artists only) ($25)
There is no combination application this year – those eligible for both categories must fill out the applications seperately.
For its 4th Edition, Art Fair 14C returns to The Glass Gallery at Mana Contemporary. The Glass Gallery is 38,000 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, residency programs, 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.
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.
Once artists have been selected by our panel of judges (40 artists were chosen in 2021), the Art Fair 14C team will conduct studio visits with each artist to help curate a mini exhibition space at the fair. In 2021 those Juried Show spaces comprised two walls at a right angle, each 6′ wide and 10′ high.
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.
