The 8th Annual Governors Island Art Fair - New York’s Largest Independent Exhibition

“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 2015 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

About 4heads:
4heads is a NYC-based arts group whose goal is to continually create diverse venues and forums to present, advocate and provide services for artists. The Governors Island Art Fair is one such project. The desire to structure valuable opportunities for creative individuals comes in part as an empathetic reflection of 4heads’ own struggle as working artists surviving in NYC. Their mission is primarily focused on encouraging organically occurring culture by nurturing the evolving community of artists, who they see as the true voice of contemporary culture.

The Governors Island Art Fair is run entirely by artists and volunteers. 4heads is a not-for-profit venture. All proceeds go to the production and maintenance of the Fair.
