The New York Independent Art Fair (NYIAF) 2002 promotes established artists who have been out of the gallery circuit for a while, who not only possess excellent selling tract records but also have a strong following of well-to-do collectors. The second edition of the Fair will be held at one of New York's greatest landmarks, THE PLAZA HOTEL, where the atmosphere is first class and regal. NYIAF, the only independent Art Fair worldwide, provides a meeting ground for chosen artists, art dealers, curators and collectors.
