The Annual Fence Show

September 21, 2011 No Comments

When it comes to art, many travel to New York City’s trendiest neighborhoods, such as The Meatpacking District, SoHo, Tribeca, Chelsea and Williamsburg, to see what’s new in the world of art. However, very few people know about the growing art community, right here,  in Staten Island. The Annual Fence Show is a big part of this hip movement. Although the show is known to be the city’s longest-running outdoor art show, (it began in 1951 and continues to this day) it expands and thrives with new talent every year. The show features local artists, sculptors, painters, craftsmen and photographers that display their art on the long iron fence at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden every year.

If you didn’t make it, next year, definitely give it a try. A visit to this richly diverse exhibition is sure to please. Best of all, the event is free to the public and the one-of-a-kind art works are for sale.

Below are some images I was able to take before my battery died, all the more reason for you to go next year to see the show.
