Call for Artists - 10th Annual Governors Island Art Fair - New York’s Largest Independent Exhibition

EXTENDED Deadline for Submission: June 20, 2017

“Gems Among the Ruins” - New York Times

Seeking independent artists worldwide working in all disciplines; Painting, Photography, Sculpture, Installation, Video, and Sound Art. Submit your work for the 2017 Governors Island Art Fair opening this September. GIAF - New York’s largest independent exhibition - will once again feature one hundred artists of exceptional talent, each awarded an exhibition room or large outdoor space in the historic and beautifully dilapidated buildings of Colonels Row. The lines between artwork and its environment are blurred across the lawns and landmark houses of bucolic Governors Island. Founded by 4heads, a group of New York artists, GIAF champions a new art fair model that puts the artists first. 

Once selected by the 4heads jury, your exhibition space is free. The entire massive event is free to the general public. And as an emerging or established artist, you are free to present your work, your way, at this acclaimed independent art fair in New York City. Because 4heads works hard to keep artists’ costs to a bare minimum, gallery scouts, journalists and collectors know that this is where to find the freshest talent, and they come back every year to see what’s been discovered. Many past GIAF artists have launched their art careers here. We hope you can too. - 4heads

4heads is also seeking outdoor artists working in all disciplines
