Announcing the first "EDITION Chicago" art fair Sept 20-22 2013

EDITION Chicago, September 20-22, 2013
The Chicago Artists Coalition is pleased to announce the launch of a new satellite art fair, EDITION Chicago
, that will showcase cutting-edge galleries and non-profit institutions specializing in limited edition works of art. This is Chicago's first edition-only art fair with an emphasis on high-quality works that will offer collectors a unique and accessible entry point to the art market. EDITION Chicago will be held on September 20-22, 2013 at the Chicago Artists Coalition's West Loop gallery located at 217 N. Carpenter Street, Chicago, Illinois 60607. Admission to the fair will be free with a suggested donation of $10.00. 

Organized by invitation to select dealers around the country, EDITION Chicago will be intimate and highly-curated. The goal of the fair is to engage and foster a new audience of collectors in Chicago and the region by focusing on accessibly-priced works of art by emerging and established artists, which also illuminate unique aspects of an artist's creative practice. EDITION Chicago is emblematic of CAC's enduring commitment to empowering Chicago artists by cultivating a community of future arts patrons and collectors.

program, CAC has been helping to build Chicago's emerging collector base over the past three years," says Carolina O. Jayaram, Executive Director of the Chicago Artists Coalition, "EDITION introduces a larger audience to both local and national dealers whose focus at the fair will be to show works with an accessible price point with an emphasis on emerging artists. We strive to bring to the market a place for cutting edge and up and coming talent who will be the next generation of museum bound, highly collected artists. This will be a great opportunity for new and established collectors to acquire works from these artists on the rise."

The galleries represented at EDITION Chicago will generally showcase works with prices at $5,000 and under. Chicago-based artist Cody Hudson will produce a limited edition print for the fair available only at EDITION Chicago. Taking place the same weekend as the EXPO International Art Fair on Navy Pier, EDITION Chicago offers a unique complement and supports city-wide efforts to establish Chicago as a premier destination for contemporary art.

The Chicago Artists Coalition is partnering with Andrew Rafacz, principal of Andrew Rafacz Gallery, to select galleries who represent the best of emerging talent working in contemporary editions. A complete list of galleries will be announced in Summer 2013, including dealers from Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Miami and other major cities. 

"I'm very excited to be partnering with CAC to bring a new fair concept to Chicago," says Andrew Rafacz. "For me, it's about fostering market development and private and institutional support for our emerging artists, both locally and beyond. It will also introduce collectorship to a new audience, something CAC has been intensely interested in for the last few years."
