LAKE PLACID — The Lake Placid Center for the Arts is excited to announce that Gallery 46 has been chosen as one of 35 galleries exhibiting at the Affordable Art Fair NYC from May 20 to 23 in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood.

The Affordable Art Fair NYC is a sales event held around the world to showcase original contemporary artworks available for less than $10,000 each. Other exhibitors at this year’s NYC fair include galleries from New York City as well as other locations in the U.S., Spain and Germany.

Gallery 46 will represent the Adirondack landscape with work from five artists who live or create within the Blue Line. This week, more than 80 works by Cynthia Rosen, Holly Friesen, Patrick McPhee, Sarah Yeoman and William Crosby will be shipped to the city in preparation for the fair.

Gallery 46 Director Jon Donk said the Affordable Art Fair is an important relaunch of the New York City art world after a year transformed by the pandemic.

“To have the Adirondacks be a part of that is really critical,” he said in a press release.
