Hosting more than 28,000 avid art enthusiasts, Artexpo New York is the largest international gathering of qualified trade buyers—including gallery owners and managers, art dealers, interior designers, architects, corporate art buyers, and art and framing retailers—giving hundreds of established and emerging artists the opportunity to get in front of the right people. Attendees will get the chance to browse thousands of innovative new works of art and enjoy education seminars, cocktail parties, live entertainment, and other special events. Artexpo also features the Topics & Trends Education Program—four days of complimentary seminars and conference classes offering expert perspectives on subjects ranging from art and the economy, small business management, and art marketing to social media for artists, design and decor trends, and more.

[SOLO] offers established and emerging independent artists the opportunity to showcase their work on an international stage.

Echoing [SOLO]’s philosophy of supporting career opportunities of independent artists and partnered with industry experts Digital Photo Pro and Outdoor Photographer, [FOTO SOLO] 2016 will be an introduction to the official launch of [FOTO SOLO] in 2017 as part of the 40thanniversary celebration of Artexpo New York.
