Our booth at the Affordable Art Fair in NYC September 21- 25, 2011
On behalf of everyone behind the scenes at Zatista, I’m happy to report that we had a great time showing at the Affordable Art Fair in New York a couple weeks ago. If you don’t live in NY or couldn’t make the fair, we’re bringing this redux straight to your living room, desk and mobile device. In case you haven’t yet noticed, we love bringing the art right to you!

We were fortunate to bring several wonderful Zatista artists with us to the fair. We’re just sorry we could bring everyone! This year, the artists showing in our booth were: Katherine Fraser, Norman Lerner, Ken Horne, Lisa Caccioppoli, Susan Grissom, David Pettibone, Warren Keating, and Maude Andrade. We had two fabulous guest speakers also:
Mr Jon Call
Our recent Guest Curator Jon Call, interior designer and founder of Mr Call Designs, talked about how to find and use art in interiors. He talked about identifying locations he calls the “12 o’clocks” in your home and suggested focusing your artwork in these locations. The “12 o’clocks” are the spots where you enter a room or turn a corner and straight ahead is a major focus wall – it could be the end of a hallway or a big blank wall that you notice immediately as you enter a room. The crowd was captivated and inspired by Jon’s insightful ideas.
Kelley Carter on left
Kelley Carter, Sr. Home Market Editor at Real Simple, talked to the crowd about how to place art in your home. As Kelley herself admits, she is “obsessed with decorating” and her enthusiasm was palpable. As expected, Kelley’s ideas were smart and refreshing. Kelley was a real crowd pleaser!

Again, a big thanks from Zatista to each of the artists and speakers who participated. It was great fun for us to get out from behind our computers to meet and greet buyers in person.
