Verge Art Brooklyn

Verge Art Brooklyn

Anagnorisis Fine Arts is very excited to be participating in its first art fair this coming season:  The inaugural Verge Brooklyn Art Fair!

In cooperation with the Brooklyn Art Project, Anagnorisis is co-curating a booth and will be including artists who both organizations have been working with for the past few years.

Our exhibiting artists will be Carrie Ann Baade, Christopher Conte, James Cospito, Molly Crabapple, Steve Ellis, Foon Foono, Caitlin Hackett, Jeremy Hush, Raghava KK and Ryan Ketchum.

In addition to original artwork, we’ll have prints for sale by many of those artists in addition to Teetering Bulb, Paul Romano and others.

We’ll be tweeting about the fair, so follow us and the Brooklyn Art Project to more easily find our booth.

Of course, on Friday night, March 4th, Anagnorisis won’t be manning the booth at the fair because we’ll be at the White Rabbit for Jeremy Hush’s solo exhibit A Curious Commotion. We’ve got DJ Mz. Margo back spinning for us and, if you’re really nice and show up early, I’ll give you a drink ticket…but you have to be nice.

Want to be on a preview list to have first dibs at the art?  Shoot us an email and let us know.

Verge has scheduled the hours of the fair very carefully, making it easy for art fair lovers to visit Brooklyn later on in the day after they’ve visited all the other art fairs in Manhattan.  Check this out:

THE INAUGURAL ART BROOKLYN
Verge is proud to announce its return to New York during Armory Show 2011 with the inaugural Art Brooklyn, a historic first-ever art fair to take place in multiple locations throughout the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, 3-6 March. Verge has partnered with Two Trees Management, Brooklyn Arts Council and the Brooklyn Borough President’s office to provide critical real estate, government and institutional support to ensure a successful Brooklyn art fair.

ABOUT VERGE ART BROOKLYN
An art fair without precedent, Art Brooklyn is the first fair of its kind to be held in Brooklyn, NY. The intention of the fair is to promote and support Brooklyn as a cultural bellwether of artistic endeavor that influences artistic practice the world over. Open to artists and galleries alike at all levels of practice, Art Brooklyn recovers the standard of an art fair as a platform for presenting the best work by living artists.
