The Other Art Fair Chicago, in Partnership with BOMBAY SAPPHIRE®, Returns with Guest Artist Anna Marie Tendler

The Independent Artist Fair will Host Its Next Chicago Edition Featuring 100+ Artists, Special Installations, Interactive Features and More

SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Other Art Fair, a global art event dedicated to showcasing independent artists, is set to host its 4th Chicago edition on April 21-24, 2022, at Fulton Market. Presented by Saatchi Art and in partnership with BOMBAY SAPPHIRE®, The Other Art Fair Chicago will host 100+ independent and emerging artists—each hand-picked by a committee of art world experts—alongside Guest Artist Anna Marie Tendler. Visitors can meet artists in person and discover thousands of original artworks and limited edition prints across various media—including painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media, and more—priced from $100 to $10,000.

Fair attendees will also enjoy DJ sets and music curated by AMFM and food by Chicago’s Soul & Smoke. Throughout the Fair weekend, the BOMBAY SAPPHIRE bar will serve complimentary gin cocktails and fair attendees can look forward to refreshing twists on the quintessentially classic Gin & Tonic created by the experts at BOMBAY SAPPHIRE.

All Star Press is returning this year with art prints by three of their artists, Blake Jones, Jc Rivera and Elloo, available exclusively at the Fair. These artists will also be collaborating on a new wall mural that will be created for Fulton Market in celebration of The Other Art Fair.

Following the success of Anna Marie Tendler’s art fair debut last fall, The Other Art Fair will welcome her back for all 2022 US editions, where she will showcase a new series of works from her “Rooms in the First House” photography series, as well as offer visitors the exclusive opportunity to have their own portraits taken by Tendler herself. Tendler said, “I am beyond thrilled to be returning to The Other Art Fair in multiple cities this spring. I will bring with me previously unavailable framed works, prints, and posters, as well as an exciting interactive element that I hope guests will love.”

The Other Art Fair is pleased to announce its new charity partnership with Arts of Life, a non-profit organization that advances the creative arts community by providing artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities a collective space to expand their practice and strengthen their leadership. Arts of Life will present artwork onsite by some of the artists supported by the program.

AMFM will feature a collection of works from AMFM affiliated artists and Chicago-based emerging artists, bringing a taste of local flavor and rising talent in the visual arts. The booth will feature a mix of work including paintings, sculpture, and collage, plus a selection of limited edition prints by featured artists.

As part of its exhibitor line-up—which will feature artists hailing from around the world—The Other Art Fair will also introduce the three Chicago-based winners of its Spring 2022 New Futures awards -- Pugs Atomz, Abena Motaboli and Zor Zor Zor. Formalized in 2021 as part of The Other Art Fair’s ongoing mission to break down traditional barriers of the contemporary art world, New Futures is designed to launch the careers of talented emerging artists by awarding local artists mentoring and free exhibition space onsite at the Fair. This year, The Other Art Fair is delighted to have Ciera McKissick (founder of AMFM), Lauren Brescia (Founder of salonlb.) and Scott Renfro (Curator at salonlb.) on the Selection Committee for the 2022 New Futures awards.

“As we celebrate our ten year anniversary, I am proud of the work we’ve done, the success our exhibiting artists have seen and our substantial growth to new markets both in the U.S. and internationally,” said Ryan Stanier, founder of The Other Art Fair. “Chicago’s bustling art scene always delivers a stellar lineup of exhibiting artists. The city’s distinctive style and energy provides an exciting environment for art lovers to discover and support independent artists and creatives. We’re looking forward to hosting another inspiring art event that will highlight the best of what Chicago’s art scene has to offer.”
