It was ok. I thought there would be more of an affordable range considering it's called the affordable art fair. I really coulnt find anything decent under $3,000

Very simple: Art - YES, Affordable - NO
If you see it as a condensed version of a museum you will be happy. These seems to be some convention among the art dealers to not sell anything lower than $750, most pieces are around $3,900 and $7,000.

I attend this event every other year and I alway enjoy it immensely. My only criticism is that i see some of the same works everytime I go. Bravo, well done.
