Emmy Award winning artistMike Perry will be the official Guest Artist forThe OtherArtFair’s return to the Brooklyn Expo Center (72 Noble Street) November 8–11. This Brooklyn-based artist, animator, creative director, brand consultant, poet, and designer — as well as the mastermind behind the animated titles of Comedy Central’s hit television show, Broad City — will present a limited-edition print sold exclusively at the fair with proceeds benefitting Free Arts NYC, the fair’s official charity partner.
The street art doesn’t lie: The Other Art Fair is returning to Brooklyn, popping up May 3–6 at the Brooklyn Expo Center (72 Noble Street) in Greenpoint. This is the third edition of this Other Art Fair, New York’s leading market for a new generation of art buyers that runs biannually in the spring and fall. 130 artists will be featured this spring, and nearly 60% of them are women.
Presented by Saatchi Art, The Other Art Fair showcases talented independent and emerging artists, each hand picked by a committee of art world experts. (Unsurprisingly, the event series has a pretty hot Instagram.) Art lovers can visit the fair with confidence that they are buying from the very best and most promising emerging artists in a unique and immersive experience that Time Out has called, “a festival for discovering mind-blowing work by emerging artists.”
In addition to showcasing the best of new painting, photography, sculpture, and light installations by 130 emerging and unrepresented local and international artists (complete roster here, with the artists’ work priced from $250-$5,000), the fair will be abuzz with provocative programming like local guest DJs to keep things at full throttle; mystery tattoos inked by artist Scott Campbell (whose clients include Robert Downey, Jr. Penelope Cruz, and Sting); portrait sketching by Amber Vittoria; a tutorial on how to invest in art under $1000 with tours led by the Saatchi Art curatorial team; and sustenance from Maman Cafe and the Van Leeuwen Mobile ice cream truck parked out front.
Of course, many local artists will be participating and exhibiting. Be sure to catch these Brooklyn-based artists at The Other Art Fair!

Gazing through the luminous 100-year-old stained glass windows at Teddy’s Bar and Grill (96 Berry St.) in the Northside of Williamsburg, it’s possible to imagine that time has stood still. The bar is in fact so old that it predates the windows by about three decades. The 130-year-old mahogany bar and tiled floor are original, adding to Teddy’s 19th-century ambiance. Opened in 1887, the bar makes the claim to be Brooklyn’s oldest continually run bar. The Brooklyn Inn (148 Hoyt St.), which claims to have opened in 1885, might dispute Teddy’s claim, but there’s no disputing that Teddy’s retains a unique 19th-century feel. Continue reading →
