FAQ

Q. When and where is Art Fair 14C?

The 4th Edition of Art Fair 14C is scheduled for November 11-13, 2022 at the Glass Gallery at Mana Contemporary in Jersey City, NJ.

Q. Jersey?

Jersey!

America’s most densely populated and oft mocked state is more than just a thoroughfare between New York and Philadelphia — and no one does Jersey jokes better than its natives.

New Jersey is home to thousands of artists, both established and emerging, and is filled with art lovers.  Although overshadowed by the robust and established art scenes in NYC and Philly, the Garden State can more than hold its own.

Q. Jersey City?

Jersey City!

The Centre Pompidou could have picked any number of places for its first North American museum, but they chose America’s most diverse city, a city that is counts the arts among its primary economic engines.  In 2020 Jersey City’s voters overwhelmingly passed a referendum to raise the property taxes and establish an Arts Trust to distribute funding to the local arts and artists.

Just across the river from Manhattan, but significantly less expensive, Jersey City is well located for both artists and audiences.

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 Booths are open to all.

We’re serious about being inclusive – our exhibitors in the past have been traditional brick and mortar galleries — from the NYC area, around the country and international — as well as online galleries, individual artists, artists’ collectives, arts organizations, residency programs and even a university MFA program.

Q. How can I apply?

Applications for the 4th Edition of Art Fair 14C will be open in late winter 2022, with a deadline of May 31, 2022 for both Exhibition Booths and the Juried Show.

There are seperate applications for Exhibition Booths and the Juried Show, and starting in 2022 we will not be combining applications for eligible New Jersey artists. 

Q. How much does it cost to participate?

Participation in the Juried Show costs no more than the application fee ($25 in 2021).

We’re still working on the Exhibition Booth costs for 2022 – but expect them to stay close to the 2021 prices, which ranged from $750 to $5,000, and are significantly below actual cost.

Q. How can you offer exhibition booths for below cost?

It’s essential to our mission.  Art Fair 14C is not just an event, it’s a program to provide artists and arts businesses with an international art fair experience — and all the ripple-effect benefits that such an experience can accrue — for a price that will help them make a living in the arts.
