This event will host contemporary artists, art publishers, and galleries from all corners of the globe. You’ll see showcases of works of fine art, sculpture, painting, photography, glassworks…you’ll see it all!

You’ll get a look at the comprehensive furniture, home décor, and gift market for five days of on-the-ground shopping, while gaining the attention and purchasing of buyers who are looking to explore fresh ideas, discover new trends, and connect with tastemakers.

  • We are accepting applications now. The deadline to apply is December 31, 2017, but we encourage you to apply early to ensure optimal booth placement.

  • You will receive a booth number when your work has been accepted.
