About Superfine! Art Fair

As both artists and collectors, Superfine! wanted to find a better way for regular people excited about art to connect directly with artists and support their work, and for artists to meet and retain their collectors, make more sales, and replace job income with art income. That’s how Superfine! was born: an art fair where artists can build a market for themselves, saving time, energy, and stress while allowing real people to discover, connect with, and support our artist community’s life work.

Superfine! has expanded to cities across the country: NYC, LA, Chicago, Seattle, Washington DC, and San Francisco. They have proven that the artist-to-buyer connection is at the center of a sustainable art market. In just 4 or 5 days, artists are meeting more collectors than they were in an entire year. 75% of surveyed visitors say meeting the artist is their favorite part of attending each Superfine! Art Fair.
