Welcome to our third virtual print fair, bringing together more than 40 exhibitors specializing in the sale of original works on paper. While you will find photographs and drawings on this site as well, most of our selection is made up of fine prints, including etchings and other intaglios, lithographs, woodcuts, woodblock prints, linocuts, screenprints, and other less common techniques such as mezzotints, or embossed prints. Our show is carefully vetted, and exhibitor participation is open only to professional print specialists with impeccable reputations for quality and integrity. There are no reproductions in this show: only original prints, drawings, and photographs.
This is the second New York Satellite Print Fair in virtual format. In response to the cancellation of all live art fairs, the organizers of the usual in-person show, brought together a small working group to launch the initial virtual fair in the fall of 2020. This was followed by the hugely successful West Coast Print Fair in January 2021. This was the first show organized by PrintFairsUSA LLC founded by Bernard Derroitte (Armstrong Fine Art of Chicago, IL) and Ed Pollack (Edward T. Pollack Fine Arts of Portland, ME).
PrintFairsUSA was created to assure that despite the absence of live shows during the covid pandemic, there would still be a venue for sellers to show, and for collectors and institutions to buy, fine prints, drawings, and other works on paper. The West Coast Print Fair was designed to take the place of the three annual print shows normally held during January and February in Portland Oregon, and Berkeley and Pasadena, California. With those fairs canceled, PrintFairsUSA scheduled a virtual fair for the same period that the live shows would have run.
The West Coast Print Fair drew an attendance of over exhibitors 45,000 visitors, and generated sales exceeding $500,000. We welcome you to our Spring Edition of The New York Satellite Print Fair, which will run from May 14 to June 14. We hope you will enjoy it, find a work of art you love and wish to take home, and make this show even more successful than the last.
Thank you for being here.
Ed Pollack & Bernard Derroitte
