Fridge Art Fair
Fridge Art Fair does not take itself too seriously. This contemporary art show is light-hearted and concentrates on offering affordable pieces in a non-intimidating atmosphere. IIt aims to offer low-cost exhibiting space to ensure that there are no barriers for local and fledgling artists. Thus, the lobby area is reserved for Brooklyn artists to encourage and help this community in a positive way. There are around 40 exhibitors expected each year. The fair presents pieces that celebrate the fun side of life, especially dog and cat-related images in paint, mixed-media, sculptural and video. Each piece has to fit in a fridge! This open-minded and pet-friendly fair has been created by artist Eric Ginsburg in 2013. Fridge Art Fair takes place annually in NYC, in the busy month of May, at the same time at Frieze New York.
