Join the Artists of Jordan Faye Contemporary as they travel the globe, first stop San Francisco Art MRKT this May 2012!

Jordan Faye Contemporary: Art MRKT, San Francisco, 2012

Hello—my name is Jordan Faye Block, I am an Artist & Curator originally from Chicago, IL now residing in Baltimore, Maryland. 

In 2006, I founded Jordan Faye Contemporary a gallery located in the heart of Baltimore, Maryland. About 3 years ago we moved the gallery into this great building in Federal Hill (it's a former library), an amazing space to showcase talented artists within the community here in Baltimore. Between our regular gallery exhibitions and our Salon Series program, the gallery has shown the work of over 200 artists.

We're working on increasing the number of people who view & collect work by our artists: Our plan is to bring our Artists (who reside in the mid-Atlantic region) to cities all over the world, and so far we've brought them to Art Fairs in Washington D.C., Miami, FL and now we're planning a trip across the country to San Francisco. (we've also been excepted into several other fairs as far away as Basel, Switzerland)

We have just been accepted into the Art MRKT in San Francisco, California, this coming May 17 - 20, 2012.  The San Francisco Art MRKT is the the Bay Area’s premier contemporary and modern art fair which features 70 highly reputable galleries from around the globe, bringing some of the world’s most intriguing artists and galleries to San Francisco. In showcasing historically important work alongside relevant contemporary pieces and projects, artMRKT creates an ideal context for the discovery, exploration and acquisition of art.

This is an amazing opportunity for the artists of Jordan Faye Contemporary as it will continue to pursue the vision that I have set forth for the artists that I represent, which is to place them in major collections and museums throughout the world.

The cost for this voyage to San Francisco, is not inexpensive. However we have a plan and are working on raising the funds necessary to get there. We've secured lodging, booked our tickets, been assigned our booth #620, and are more than halfway to our goals.

Now we're asking for your assistance! With your help we plan to take the artwork of Jenee Mateer, Lori Larusso, David Page, Janna Rice, T.R.Kaltreider, Donald Edwards, Edwin Remsberg, & Lat Naylor.  These artists represent a selection of the historically significant emerging artists that we are working with today.

If you are unfamiliar with Kickstarter, this is a terrific organization however it is an all-or-nothing style of fundraising.  If we do not raise at least $4400, our project will be pulled and your account will not be charged. Once the $4,400 is raised, the project will be successful.  Our ultimate goal is to raise the remaining $4400 to cover the costs of shipping, a portion of our booth cost and transportation to & from San Francisco.

Every level of donation comes with a different reward!!  There are many rewards such as: original signed and limited edition prints, small drawings, and small to medium paintings, there's even an opportunity to have a cocktail party in the gallery with several of our artists and attend a special Celebration Party after we come back from the fair; as a thank you for your support.
