The New York Satellite Print began in 2010 when a group of dealers partnered with a show promoter to produce a show at the New York Lighthouse for the Blind on East 57th Street to serve as an adjunct to the IFPDA’s New York Print Fair at the Park Avenue Armory. The Fair later moved to The Bohemian Hall on East 77th Street, and then followed the IFPDA Fair to the West Side, where it found a beautiful new home at Hudson Mercantile’s Annex 37. Throughout the annual iterations of the Fair in the different locations, there has been a cadre of supportive dealers and print publishers, about half of them IFPDA members and the rest well established participants from all over the US, as well as Canada and even Europe.
Plans were already underway to produce the 2020 show at Annex 37 when the Covid virus pandemic forced us to reconsider the feasibility of this year’s event. The IFPDA and E/AB canceled their Fairs. NYSPF was forced to follow suit and canceled its 2020 show at Annex 37.
With this website we have created the NY Satellite Print Fair 2020 – Virtual Edition. This fall it will substitute for the “live” fair; going forward we plan to use it to supplement future live fairs by providing opportunities for those who can’t get to the live show to see selected works and access the websites of our exhibitors to see the full range of their inventories.
The Virtual Edition will be online October 16-25, the traditional dates of New York Print Week.
Space limitations at Annex 37 enabled us to accommodate 17 booths; in the Virtual world there are no such limitations, so we have invited additional publishers and dealers to exhibit. The works shown encompass the full range of works on paper – prints, drawings, and photographs, and the full range of art movements and times. Our exhibitors include specialists in the works of the Old Masters, as well as of Modern and Contemporary American, European and Asian artists. Some of our exhibitors are Master Printers and Publishers who work directly with artists to create new work and bring it before the public; others are Secondary Market dealers, who find, and curate works from the past.
We hope you will enjoy visiting the Virtual Booths of our Exhibitors or searching for your own specialty interests within the various categories we have provided.
