Those looking to soak in some art in the next month should make their way to the National Arts Club off of Gramercy Park, where the Accessible Arts Fair is happening from now through November 25th. Originally from Brussels, the fair was brought to the US by MVVO and encourages artists to interact with prospective buyers and visitors, breaking down the traditional barrier between artist and audience.

The fair held two VIP preview nights last week at the National Arts Club. Guests feasted on caviar and sipped Stoli Elit Cocktails while they perused the 150 artworks on display (all of which is available to purchase). The artists themselves mingled in the crowd, and will be featured on scheduled panels throughout the month (the first is on “Technological revolutions in the art world” and is happening this Saturday at the National Arts Club).
