Here Are 9 Affordable Works We Love at the Portal Fair on Governor’s Island, New York’s Least Pretentious Art Fair

Labor Day weekend marks the start of the newly rechristened art fair Portal: Governors Island, the free annual event that takes over the deteriorating brick mansions that once housed officers on New York’s Governors Island, a quirky historic destination that has recently expanded its offerings to include glamping and an oyster bar.

Long before well-heeled art collectors were boarding the ferry for Frieze on Randall’s, the Governors Island Art Fair, as Portal was previously called, was New York City’s first island-based art fair, founded in 2008 by the art nonprofit 4heads, run by Antony ZitoNicole Laemmle, and Jack Robinson. Now returning for its 12th year, the fair may have a new name, but its dedication to engaging an audience outside of the art world cognoscenti remains unchanged...

...My favorite works at the fair tended to lean toward artists who draw inspiration from the architecture. Anne Muntges literally drew all over her space, painting the walls white and meticulously covering nearly every surface—floor and ceiling not included—with black acrylic paint hatch marks. The delicate black-and-white line work made it feel a little bit like you were stepping into an Edward Gorey drawing. Muntes (sic) will custom design an entire room in this style, while the individual components are priced at $200 to $800.
