The Affordable Art Fair, which took over two floors of the Metropolitan Pavilion from March 25th – 29th, may now be relegated to a cache of wonderful memories, but that doesn’t mean we can’t revisit some of the fantastic art we saw over several visits, or give a well-earned shout out to the many galleries from all over the globe who came together to make this such a successful and memorable event for all art lovers who attended.

Here are some of our favorite pieces and galleries from the show!

Reyka Vodka Bar

A special shout out goes to Reyka Vodka (my favorite), who sponsored Free Admission Friday and hosted an open bar on the second floor. Impulsive Drunk Art Buying! Woo!

Miniature Balloon Dog

The folks in the Karyn Mannix Contemporary booth, who were selling these adorable miniature replicas of Jeff Koons’ Balloon Dogs mounted on drink coaster-sized mirrors could be overhead chatting about how “Jeff Koons does not own the likeness of the Balloon Dog” and thus anyone should be able to do whatever the heck they want with it, and blah blah blah. They have a point, of course, and I am sure this argument holds water right up to litigation time!

Jealous Gallery Booth

Finally, let’s make a pit-stop at another favorite exhibitor, Jealous Gallery, which has several locations in London, UK. It is probably no accident that this the booth where I ended up making a purchase.

  1. I really enjoyed the AAF this year. And even from walking through it twice, I notice pieces in your post that I didn’t see at the fair.
