Fountain Art Fair At It Again
I love Fountain Art Fair and the folks working non-stop behind the scenes for the opening night. Fountain is an exhibition of avant garde artwork in New York during Armory week, Miami during Art Basel Miami Beach and Los Angeles during Pacific Standard Time weekend. Fountain has tripled its venue size by moving to the historic 69th Armory, yet remains true to its progressive roots by hosting not one but now two events during Armory week in New York.
Contemporary art gurus Artlog will kick off an unforgettable celebration at Fountain’s Public Opening Night Reception, Friday March 9 from 7-11pm, guest DJ’d by New York legend Fab 5 Freddy. On Saturday visitors will now have four extra hours to soak up Fountain’s art-fueled frenzy, as Fountain has extended its hours until 11pm for an exciting Saturday night event curated by our nonprofit partner Art for Progress.
Fountain is dedicated to supporting smaller independent galleries and artists will present an outstanding roster of participants including veterans The Marketplace Gallery, Microscope Gallery, and Marni Kotak as well as an impressive lineup of new exhibitors, among them Big Deal Arts and Albany Center Gallery.
