Description

Arlene's Art Fair at Arlene's Artist Materials

Friday, August 18th, from 12 to 5 pm and Saturday, August 19th, from 11am to 4pm.


Arlene’s Artist Materials is delighted to announce our first Arlene’s Art Fair scheduled to take place at the store, 57 Fuller Rd Albany, NY 12205, on August 18th and 19th 2017. Carrying on the legacy of Arlene's, the Art Fair's mission is to showcase work done by local talent while developing a marketplace where relationships between collectors, of all levels, and artist’s are formed. There are a lot of talented artists that live and work in the Capital Region. However, the opportunities of getting their work out into the community are limited. Developing the Arlene’s Art Fair was a natural solution to this apparent need.

It was hard for our Art Fair Committee to narrow down applicants but they finalized on a group of 10 exhibitors that accurately depicts what the Capital Region’s art community has to offer. Artist’s like Fick Ford who works in the tradition of taxonomic plate style painting to depict the wonders of local fish. Ford works in a meticulous watercolor process that he developed over a 10-year period. Stephanie Manzi who grew up outside of Albany in Delmar, NY and currently resides in Watervliet, NY. Manzi’s work ranges from observational and figurative imagery to abstract, mixed media collage. Sculptor Nancy Steckel, from East Greenbush, NY, explores different directions and possibilities of with working with clay and is attempting to extend the limits of the medium. All Steckel’s pieces are hand built, mostly using coils of clay and pinching techniques. This is a brilliant group of exhibitors and there is truly something for everyone. Come see all their great work and take home something special.

Arlene’s Artist Materials is the Capital Region’s premiere locally owned, independent, and family operated art supply store with in house custom frame shop. Arlene’s is dedicated to developing creativity in the community that we have been a part of since 1960. Arlene’s has high hopes for Art Fair and are looking forward to developing this outlet for our community.
