Bare Walls? Don’t Worry, an Inclusive Art Oasis Awaits Just Across Town [Sponsor]
Ever felt like the odd one out at a gallery or art fair? Superfine! NYC is the fair that’s designed for you. A sleeker, chic-er, more fun way to collect art, Superfine! touches down for the second year in a row in the Meatpacking District from May 2-6. Expect more than 2,000 original pieces priced to your taste and your budget, with the vast majority falling in the few hundred to few thousand dollar range. You’ll be able to discover a new artist, and actually take their work home with you!
Each Superfine! is chock-full of programming geared towards art-fanciers and collectors alike, and next month’s fair is no exception. Join the crew from O.G. Chinatown standby Nom Wah Tea Parlor for a night of dim sum and art at the Dim Sum Collectors’ Dinner on May 3; or be first to the (metaphorical) table on Wednesday May 2 at the fair’s Twilight Vernissage which will feature performances by Heidi Latsky Dance along with cotton-candy draped champagne and a live performance by world-renowned body painter Trina Merry. The fair also blends food and art on Friday May 4 by partnering with East Village snow cream stalwart Snowdays for the second annual Young Collectors’ Ice Cream Social.
Honoring the more than 70% of female artists at Superfine!, the Girls’ Night Out (For Art!) benefiting the hometown heroes at the Lower Eastside Girls Club will be a night of female-driven art and fun for a good cause (video below). Expect lady DJs from the club’s own roster, performance art, and sake cocktails across the board. The Girls Club itself will have a booth curated with works by their own young masters at take-me-home prices, and 20% of your ticket will go to benefit year round arts programming at the center that’s been serving the community for decades.
All of the above proves you can enjoy yourself, find art you love (and can afford!), all the while supporting artists at all stages of their careers. Who’d have thunk it?
