The art was not affordable by my standards. It was like seeing many galleries in one place but what is usually free is being charged an admission charge.

My first art exhibit! It was a wonderful way to spend an evening. Although I didn't buy anything as many did not, it was still an experience to view many works of art from artists near and far..right here in the city as well as Europe and...continued

Affordable art is a relative term. Most of the pieces were priced between one thousand (some slightly less with stickers noting that they cost under that amount) and ten thousand dollars, which is beyond my budget. Even if you are in my income...continued

I treated this as a museum visit, since there was nothing "affordable" for me. Some very nice pieces, lots of interesting stuff that I'd never bring home and mostly friendly art dealers.

I did not go there to buy anything, I went there just to see the art. I was rewarded for my effort with many unique pieces of work, many were photograph worthy and I did take pictures.

As with everything in NYC lately: too many people in too small a place. Very scared that my purse would knock over a sculpture. Hard to see some pieces because there wasn't enough room to back up and get a look before other people would flood in...continued

First-rate art. There was not a lot that was affordable. Of course, affordability is based on your purse limits. I will go again.

Great variety of art - some amateurish and some really nice. Space was well laid out and bright. The food available was good.
