    4. While what constitutes "affordable" is subjective, there is almost certainly work available to suit most budgets. Many galleries offer installment plans, take credit cards, or have perhaps an unframed work or smaller print that may just be more in your budget!

    5. After you walk around the Fair, take a few moments to reflect on what you like and consider your top choices. If you decide to wait and come back tomorrow, dont be surprised if your favorite work has been sold!

    6. Enjoy the Fair! The Affordable Art Fair NYC is a fun event, so have a good time. Join in a program, meet an artist, or take a break in our caf.

    1. You have your Fair Guide great start! As you walk around, make notes about the galleries or works of art you liked.

    2. Dont be afraid to ask questions! Speaking to exhibitors is a great way to gain exclusive insight, and they are always happy to talk about the artists they represent.

    3. While keeping your options open, try to envision where in your home or office you may want to place an artwork. Choosing to buy a piece of art is a personal decision and often made because a work "speaks" to you. However, it is also okay to take into consideration practical matters such as the size of the wall in your living room!
