American Art Fair Kicks Off Art Week

by Mat Dirjish

Celebrating its 15th year, the American Art Fair makes a permanent move to spring dates and will open American Art Week. The fair has a reputation for presenting accessibly priced museum quality works by experts in 19th and 20th century American art.

Running from May 14 to 17, 2022, the fair takes place at New York City’s Bohemian National Hall, located at 321 East 73rd Street. Admission is free to the public.

Women artists, artists of color, and newly discovered artists are among the creators of the nearly 400 pieces on view from the Hudson River School painters. Stylistically, these include American Impressionists, Tonalists, American Illustrators, the Ashcan School, American Modernists, and American Abstractionists. First timers include American Surrealists and Mexican and Latin American masters.
