“My theory about why people like superheroes is that when we were kids, we all loved to read fairy tales. Fairy tales are all about things bigger than life: Giants, witches, trolls, dinosaurs and dragons and all sorts of imaginative things. Then you get a little bit older and you stop reading fairy tales, but you don’t ever outgrow your love of them.”
A non-refundable entry fee of $20 is required for up to three artworks. If you would like to include detail images of your work, those are excepted at no additional cost. Please include contact information, artwork title, media and dimensions with your submission. It is preferable that artworks are for sale. All hanging work must be suitably framed to a professional standard. Work must be wired and ready for hanging. Canvases should have neat gallery wrapped edges.

Founded by partners in work and life, James Miille and Alex Mitow, Superfine! emphasizes work by the LGBTQIA+ community and female artists. In 2020, Superfine! is launching a three-week themed art fair with a week devoted each to women artists and LGBTQIA+ artists.
About Superfine! Art Fair
Founded by art collectors Alex Mitow and James Miille, Superfine! started in 2015 as an alternative to boring, stuffy art shows and complicated art world politics. From the start, they caught flack from the art establishment. They broke down barriers and opened the gates to everyone from serious long-time art collectors to people who love art and never thought they would be collectors.
Their open and transparent approach worked. Imaginations have been sparked. Countless new collections have been jump-started at Superfine! art fairs as they continue to spread their message of a more inclusive art market across the country. Since 2015, they had one goal: produce bad-ass, expertly-curated art shows where über-talented, diverse global artists meet their new fans in iconic locations.
