For A Look Into Our Spaces: FLOOR PLANS I PHOTOS
4heads, a New York based arts group, is offering galleries and arts organizations the opportunity to participate in The 5th Annual Governors Island Art Fair.
The event will be held every weekend September 2013 on Governors Island, New York City. This historic island is only 800 yards from Lower Manhattan and is perhaps the very last great expanse of undeveloped space for public use in New York City. It is accessible via a free 8-minute ferry ride featuring spectacular views of the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn, the bridges and downtown Manhattan.
As well as providing juried exhibition spaces to more than 100 independent artists, 4heads is welcoming galleries and arts organizations interested in exhibiting in this year's Fair. The exhibition space of GIAF is housed in landmark army barracks and each exhibitor is given their own room to design as they please.
Room sizes vary from 90sqf to 290sqf, at prices ranging from $1000 to $3500. All spaces will be open to the public every Saturday and Sunday during park hours, 11am to 6pm. We also offer a single weekend availability at $750 for two days, please contact us for details.
4heads believes that every aspect of this fair should be handled in a spirit of cooperation. Therefore the fees for exhibition space are well below the rate charged at other art fairs, making The Governors Island Art Fair accessible to a wide selection of galleries and arts organizations.
In addition to the large attendance that the fair generates, the island as a historical park and artistic destination brings in over 20,000 visitors each weekend. You may view the Island's calendar of events here.
For the public this is an opportunity to view and collect the latest artwork from some of the best independent artists and galleries from around the world.
