Above: The SeaFair will dock in Greenwich from Thursday, Sept. 15., to Sunday, Sept. 19. Visitors are invited to come aboard to see art from around the world and attend several art talks. Admission information can be found here.
Nearly 30 international galleries will be taking part in the Art Greenwich art fair, which runs Thursday, Sept. 15 to 19, at the Greenwich Harbor.
Yes, that’s right the harbor.
The art will be aboard a 228-foot exhibition vessel “SeaFair,” which will feature all manner of photography, painting, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry and other items, according to show organizers. The work of masters and emerging talent will be featured, along with unique and eclectic objects.
Visitors will be invited to peruse the art, featured across three decks of the ship, and, perhaps, stop for refreshment at the onboard bars and restaurants. There also will be art lectures, free with admission.
The traveling art fair last visited Greenwich in 2007.
Here are a few of the items you will find if you go, according to publicity materials from show organizers:
Modern masters including works by Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, Alexander Calder, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein
A special exhibition- “Made in China”- presenting the works of 17 contemporary Chinese artists whose works span from the mid-90s to today
Contemporary and emerging artist’s work – paintings, sculpture, and photography
Period 20th century signed jewelry by Verdure, David Webb, Van Cleef & Arpels, Yves St. Laurent, George Jensen, Tiffany & Co., Jean Despres, Cartier and Madame Gripoix Chanel
