For a second year, the fair will be held at The University Club

Admission is free.
Print Dealers Bernard Derroitte (Armstrong Fine Art of Chicago) and Ed Pollack (Edward T. Pollack Fine Arts of Portland Maine) will produce the Capital Art Fair again at the University Club of Washington DC on the weekend of April 5-7.
The Capital Art Fair, started more than 40 years ago, is the oldest Fair in America devoted to fine prints and drawings. This year’s Fair will open with a ticketed cocktail party preview on Friday from 5 pm to 8 pm. Saturday hours will be 10 am to 5 pm; Sunday hours 11 am to 5 pm. Admission is free on Saturday and Sunday.
The fair will feature 15 exhibitors from across the United States, including David Allen Fine Arts, Jeannot R. Barr Prints & Drawings, Stevens Fine Art, Pia Gallo, The Verne Collection, William P. Carl Fine Prints, Paramour Fine Arts, Conrad R. Graeber Fine Art, Egenolf Gallery, Georgina Kelman Works on Paper, Roger Genser: The Prints and the Pauper, Jan Johnson Old Master and Modern Prints, The Old Print Shop, The Tolman Collection, and Edward T. Pollack Fine Arts.
The fair is devoted to the exhibit and sale of fine works on paper including etchings, woodcuts, lithographs, drawings, watercolors, and more. Its exhibitors come from around the US, and the work they show represents 500 years of Art History. Visitors to the show will see and have the opportunity to purchase original prints and drawings by Old Masters such as Rembrandt and Durer, 19th-century masters such as Goya and Whistler, 20th-century masters like Picasso and Miro, modern masters such as Warhol and Haring, as well as Japanese Prints from the classical Ukiyo-Yi period to the present day. Materials shown will range in price from very modest to quite expensive, a mix designed to offer real and historic original artwork to both new and seasoned collectors and to Museums and similar institutions.
The Capital Art Fair will also have an online component, The Capital Art Fair Online which will be open from April 5 until April 12 at CapitalArtFair.com, providing an opportunity for those who cannot attend in person to see much of the same materials, while allowing its exhibitors to reach an audience beyond those who visit the fair. It will also feature exhibitors who cannot participate in the Fair in person.
