Limited artist booths available

Known for uncommonly successful art fairs in iconic locations, Superfine Art Fair is the top avenue for artists to meet eager collectors and sell their work in the US.

Ranked “Miami’s Favorite Art Fair” in 2017 by the Miami New Times, Superfine Art Fair makes a triumphant return to Miami Beach. The fair will feature:

  • 25,000 square feet of exhibition space on the 7th floor of 1111 Lincoln with 360 degree views of Miami Beach
  • Partnerships including The Bass Museum of Art, Miami’s tech entrepreneur community, and municipal organizations
  • 5,000 ready-to-buy visitors over 4 days (25% of Superfine visitors report buying art at each fair)

Hosting Superfine Miami Beach in March affords exhibitors:

  • A top notch, high-traffic venue in the middle of peak season
  • Access to an affluent, art-hungry audience with much less competition and “noise” than December/Art Basel week
  • Networking opportunities with institutions, municipalities, and decision makers
  • Be at the center of a new Superfine Art Week in Miami Beach, rather than on the periphery of a more spread-out, less focused event

Superfine Miami Beach will host the same infrastructure Superfine clients are used to:

  • 10’ tall hardwood walls and museum quality exhibition lighting in a new, environmentally-friendly setting
  • Open air space surrounded by glass walls to mitigate wind
  • Commitment to reducing carbon output
  • Portion of proceeds donated to fighting climate change
  • Only 70 artists and collectives will be accepted into Superfine Miami Beach 2021

Recent Superfine fairs include New York’s 5th Avenue show in Midtown Manhattan, San Francisco at Fort Mason (across from the Golden Gate Bridge), and Washington DC at Union Market. Artists report meeting dozens of new collectors and each fair generates hundreds of thousands of dollars in collective in-fair art sales.

Testimonials

“I have been incredibly busy with sales…The cachet of being in a major art fair continues to reverberate.” – Jessica Ruth Freedman | Superfine Exhibitor

“I loved every second of my Superfine Art Fair experience…I met a lot of buyers, interested gallery owners and public art representatives as well as brilliant fellow artists, and the very juicy cherry on top was that I sold 13 pieces over the 4 days! On top of that I also sold 2 more pieces after the fair had finished thanks to being on the Superfine website. It felt like I was part of a great family and I can’t wait for the next one!” – Valerie Auersperg | Superfine SF

“Unlike large corporate fairs, Superfine is an art fair run by people who love what they do. They have a passion for art and offer support and motivation to the participating artists.” – Blair Martin Cahill | Superfine LA artist

“My connections to collectors from the Superfine DC fair still echo to this day.  With my one-of-a kind creations going to collectors’ homes, sales that lead to numerous commissioned works, generating continuous interest is something I couldn’t have asked as a better art fair experience.” – Lina Alattar | Superfine DC 2019 artist

“Superfine has been a life-changing experience that accelerated my career and created so many new relationships with artists, collectors, curators, galleries and journalists that I still benefit from to this day.” – Sean Christopher Ward | Superfine SF, NY, DC

About Superfine Art Fair

Since 2015, Superfine has shown artists from around the world how to sell their art at art fairs in NYC, Washington DC, Miami Beach, LA, San Francisco, and Seattle. Marketing art is second nature to them, and they love nothing more than to share that with eager, entrepreneurial artists.

Consistently ranked among the best art fairs for artists in the world, Superfine Art Fair has helped hundreds of artists get over feelings of hopelessness and anxiety about selling their work while gaining visibility and, most importantly, finding new collectors for their work. Superfine Art Fair artists report feeling taken care of, empowered, and in control of their careers.

Curate, curate, curate. That’s the mantra for each fair. While every artist is incredible in their own way, Superfine’s team hand-picks those with individual style, a high level of professionalism, and top-quality work. You may even feel a little intimidated at first by the artists around you, but that feeling will soon switch to pride.

Superfine are big believers that a proper presentation makes all the differences. Whether open-air or indoor, art fairs exemplify a higher level of production than most art fairs for individual artists.

Buyers buy more art when they feel comfortable interacting with the artists. Superfine creates a relaxed atmosphere that encourages art sales.

Courthouse Expansion (Concord, NC) – Call For Artists

Courthouse Expansion (Concord, NC) – Call For Artists

[Sponsored Listing] Cabarrus County, North Carolina is seeking artists or artist collaborations to create innovative, original, and site-specific artwork for the Cabarrus County Courthouse Expansion that is currently under construction in downtown Concord, NC.

Click here for the application / registration

Enter by: 20 Dec 2021

The Art Selection Committee for this project is seeking an artist or artist team who can understand and express, in a suspended, permanently-installed, large-scale piece, the Courthouse’s role in providing sound and fair justice. The location of the art will be in the main public lobby, where high windows afford views of the artwork from outside the building on three sides, as well as inside.

The total public art budget for the Courthouse Expansion project, including all aspects of design, fabrication, transport, and installation, is $350,000. One (1) to three (3) finalists will each receive a $2,500 stipend to cover design costs for their proposal and travel/ presentation.

About the Cabarrus County Courthouse

When completed, the new Cabarrus County Courthouse will be a 313,000 SF court facility that includes a new 240,000 SF addition to the existing 1975 courthouse. Together with the new construction, the existing 73,000 SF facility will undergo complete interior renovation and repurposing to fulfill long-term, multi-generational space requirements.

As noted in the Designers’ Narrative for the project, “While the existing courthouse fronting Union Street will be completely renovated, a new addition and public entry (off Means Ave Pedestrian Plaza) will reshape the identity of the courthouse campus. The intentional siting of this new primary entry is the defining element of the concept.”

Similarly, the artwork commissioned for this project will reshape and help define the perceptions of those entering or passing the Courthouse and frame a new experience of a ‘house of justice.’
The artwork will not only complement the architecture of the building, and provide an attraction – and distraction – for those entering; but also it shall help shift mindsets.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 31 Oct 2021

Completed sculptures or proposed designs can be submitted. For proposed designs, examples of previous work must be included within the application. Open to art beyond what is traditionally viewed as sculpture (i.e. light installations). All sculptures need to be made of a durable material for the yearlong outdoor setting and constructed with safety in mind for display in a public setting.

Castlegar Sculpturewalk Awards

Each artist accepted to the program will receive an $1000 honorarium, payable upon installation of sculpture.

  • People’s Choice Awards: Winning sculpture purchased for up to $15,000 plus a $2000 cash award, 2nd place $1000, 3rd place $500

About Castlegar Sculpturewalk

Inspired by, and borne of, local artist Pat Field’s participation in the Sculpturewalk program of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Castlegar Sculpturewalk began in 2010 with just ten sculptures. When Castlegar City Council learned of Sioux Falls’ downtown revitalization initiative tied to the cultural economy, they realized that they faced many of the same downtown revitalization issues and agreed to a trial project.

Incredibly, with community and basin support, and a dedicated group of volunteers, this cautious trial project grew beyond expectations into Castlegar becoming The Sculpture Capital of Canada™. Downtown Castlegar is now one of the few venues in Canada where artists have the opportunity to show and sell outdoor sculptural work, bringing international artists to the community, and supporting emerging local and regional talent.

A.I.R. Studio Paducah (Kentucky Residency) – Call For Artists

A.I.R. Studio Paducah (Kentucky Residency) – Call For Artists

[Side Arts Certified Sponsored Listing] A.I.R. Studio Paducah, an artist-in-residence studio and efficiency apartment located in the Lower Town Arts District of Paducah, Kentucky six blocks from the Ohio River, announces an ongoing call for artists. A.I.R. Studio welcomes self-motivated, focused artists working in a range of creative practices: visual artists, photographers, architects, writers, composers, and improvisational choreographers. Applicants are encouraged to have a clear objective for their residency. Stays usually range from two weeks to three months.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: Ongoing

A.I.R. Studio is for serious artists who want a creative respite from their day-to-day environment and offers an ideal setting for those on sabbatical or who want a focused period of time to start or complete a body of work. The residency affords the artist time and space for focused, independent work, development of new ideas, and experimentation. Visits to area cultural centers, galleries, and performance venues as well as short trips to regional arts facilities can open up a range of networking possibilities. A.I.R. Studio features a storefront multi-purpose display space that can be used for exhibitions or presentations during the residency.

Resident Profile

For most of its existence, A.I.R. Studio residents have been visual and fiber artists, a few photographers, and a scattering of creatives in other disciplines.

Testimonials

“I embrace this day and all the levels of awareness that have entered my consciousness amidst depths of sadness and loss. Sitting on a bench overlooking the Ohio River, a gentle breeze brings comfort to my body and I watch what appears to be, calm, lightly fluttering wings on the surface of the water. This is just what I need. The great expanse in front of me is a gentle reminder that there is a great deal beyond this place where I sit; more to experience and endless opportunities to create a greater life of fulfillment beyond this moment.” – Helen Elliott, GA

“The experience really jumped-started me into a new path with my work. The residency also allowed for some reflection on my life, my pursuit of the arts, and acted almost as a spiritual retreat.” – Dan Annarino, IN

“Being at Paducah A.I.R. was a spectacular enterprise for me. Having the studio there last February was life changing and I have yearned for a studio space ever since. On another note, I am showing the large work I created there for the first time opening today. Seeing the work up at the Manhattan Beach Art Center tonight will be a moving reminder of that beautiful experience.” – June Edmonds, CA

About A.I.R. Studio Paducah

The A.I.R. Studio and efficiency apartment is located in the heart of the Paducah’s Lower Town Arts District and six blocks away from the Ohio River. As a resident in this setting you have the flexibility of making art in small town peace and quiet or engaging with the artist community.
