The aptly named ‘Art on Paper’ is the newest addition to NYC’s
March art fair madness. The fair offers a focused offering of works that are either directly or indirectly connected to the medium of paper. The works on view present a coherent and curated look at the versatility of the medium, from the more traditional use of paper in painting and photography to sculpture and ceramics. The 55 galleries involved also present a varied demographic, though there are more established galleries involved, the fair is focused on young and emerging artists as well as dealers. We check out the top 10 highlights from this unusual exhibition.
