FAQ for artists and galleries
Q. Is there going to be an Art Fair 14C in 2021 – and will it be live or virtual?
We are thrilled that the 3rd Edition of Art Fair 14C will be an in-person fair at the expansive and beautiful Glass Gallery at Mana Contemporary October 15-17, 2021.
The applications for the Juried Show and Exhibitor spaces will be open in late winter, with the deadline to apply July 5, 2021.
Q. Do I have to be from New Jersey to participate in Art Fair 14C?
Yes and no. The Juried Show is open only to artists who live or have a studio in New Jersey, but the Exhibition Spaces are open to all.
In 2021 Art Fair 14C will strictly abide by New Jersey’s Covid-19 regulations and restrictions, which may make it impractical for exhibitors from outside of the United States or outside of the Northeast.
Q. I’m not a traditional brick-and-mortar gallery, can I still apply?
Of course! We recognize that the traditional model of gallery is in flux – it’s one of the reasons we created this art fair – and that there are many different ways that art dealers can exhibit and sell art.
In past editions of Art Fair 14C there have been a wide variety of Exhibitors – from established Chelsea galleries to online startups. We’ve had individual artists exhibit, as well as artist collectives, arts organizations, and even the Art Department of a university.
501(c)(3) visual arts nonprofits have special opportunities for a discounted fee to exhibit at Art Fair 14C. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
We are open and flexible in our requirements for Exhibition space applicants, but if you are uncertain about applying, please feel free to email us at email@example.com, explain your business model, and we will be happy to help guide you.
Q. Is there a fee to apply?
Yes – although we are a nonprofit dedicated to supporting the visual arts, we do need to have an application fee to cover the costs of the application – an application through the Submittable program and honoraria for our judges.
The fees for 2021 are the same as 2020 – $25 for the Juried Show, $40 for Exhibition Space.
Applicants who are not accepted will receive two complimentary day passes to Art Fair 14C.
Applications for 2021 will be open in November 2020.
Q. Who are the judges?
We are still confirming judges for 2021.
Q. I have more questions.

FAQ for visitors
Q. What kind of art can I expect to see at Art Fair 14C?
We don’t yet know what the 2021 fair will look like, but based on the past two years, you will find an eclectic mix of contemporary art, much of it from the NY/NJ region.
Art Fair 14C was created to give opportunities to artists and galleries who are largely shut out of traditional art fairs, so you will definitely discover new artists.
Q. I am not that familiar with Jersey City – is it easy to get there?
Very easy! We’re just across the Hudson River from lower Manhattan.
You can get here by car through the Holland Tunnel or the New Jersey Turnpike (exit 14C, of course). By mass transit through the PATH train and Hudson-Bergen LightRail, as well as NY Waterway ferry service.
