After a Covid-induced hiatus, the Superfine Art Fair team returns to DC April 7-10, 2022 for its third full-scale DC art fair. Taking over the 15,000 square foot space at 713 7th St NW, Superfine is partnering with the DMV League of Artists and Oxford Properties to present its first fair in the heart of DC.
.
“We’re really excited to bring Superfine to a more central DC location that’s easily reached from every neighborhood. Since we were able to negotiate a favorable agreement with the DMV League of Artists as our partners, we’re also able to dedicate a significantly larger chunk of our budget to strategic marketing. For this year’s fair, we plan to really up the ante over previous years’ shows,” says co-founder Alex Mitow.
.
75 artists (more than half hailing from the DMV area) will present and sell their work, and the fair’s management expects a success. Their last in-person show (and first since Covid began) on New York City’s fifth avenue drew an audience of 3,500 and exhibitors sold nearly $1 million in art during and as a result of the fair. Typically, 20-25% of Superfine attendees purchase art, but in New York the figure was well over 50%. The fair’s founders attribute this to the excitement around in-person events post-lockdown, as well as peoples’ increased dedication to individualizing their home and office spaces.
.
As with previous Superfine fairs in DC, the team will partner with local institutions, collectors, media, and art influencers to expand its reach and welcome an audience excited to discover and collect art.
.
“Not only is our new location a boon for artists, but we’ll be able to capitalize on the excitement around the National Cherry Blossom Festival and the District’s promotion of events taking place during April to drive not only DC locals, but also visitors, to Superfine DC.”
