The Only Fair Exclusively for Emerging Art

VERGE emerging art fair is proud to announce its inaugural New York event at
the 4-star Dylan Hotel, March 4-7, 2010, coinciding with the New York Armory
Show. VERGE is THE source for emerging art in New York, the only art fair
exclusively devoted to emerging art throughout the New York art fair scene.
Located only 7 short blocks from Volta, The Armory Show's sister fair, and
one block from NYC landmarks including Grand Central Terminal, VERGE is well
positioned to provide a high visibility platform for the best in new and
emerging art.

Verge is an international platform for the most exciting and interesting in
new and emerging art. Verge exists to establish boundaries of the
extraordinary as a counter to the natural compulsion towards stagnation in
the way art is evaluated and delivered to the public. Staying true to this
necessary state for the advancement of art requires a sustained focus on the
best new ideas and practices of those marginal or newly emerging to
international art audiences. The satisfaction of this fixed requirement for
a healthy and competitive artistic culture is at the core of Verge as an
international exposition of the highest quality artistic production and the
galleries, museums and audiences who sustain it.

Located in the former home of the New York Chemists Club, built in 1903, the
Dylan is a lavish environment in which to showcase the best in new and
emerging art. Dylan's interiors, by Jeffrey Beers of Jeffrey Beers
International, mark a deliberate departure from both the too stark and
overly hip designs currently prevalent in the high-end boutique hotel
market. Interior design features include rich jewel-toned fabrics, Carrara
marble sinks and American walnut fixtures and furnishings. The 11 foot
ceilings in each guest room and suite not only complement the design, but
offer a feeling of spaciousness not found in the average New York City
hotel. Beers has created a timeless look for the property that redefines
opulence for a new age while preserving the landmark-quality architecture of
the 1903 Beaux-Arts structure. Room service is provided by the popular
Benjamin Steakhouse at the Dylan Hotel for breakfast and dinner.
