Come join us as the Gracie Square Art Show, an annual tradition on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, enters its 47th year. This prestigious show features professional artists offering gallery quality work including watercolors, oils, pastels, sculpture and photography. These artists come from both around the corner and across the country.


The “Art Fair Source Book”, the acknowledged #1 Guidebook for Art Fairs and Festivals in the U.S. has, in the past, ranked the Gracie Square Art Show in their top 100 for Sales of Fine Art at juried fairs and festivals. And in 2018 the GSAS participating artists voted the show in the top 25% of AFSB’s measured Arts Fairs in the Country. Also artists’ votes placed GSAS #58 among the Arts Fairs measured by Sunshine Magazine.  The extraordinary caliber of work available draws a wide audience of art collectors, patrons, critics and enthusiasts alike.


Says painter Michael Patterson “I like to show where people are savvy about art.  Here, in this area, people know about art: they go to museums and it is a smart, savvy audience”.


The setting is Carl Schurz Park, which hugs the East River on Manhattan’s Upper East Side and is home to Gracie Mansion, the residence of New York City mayors. Come for the show and then enjoy the peaceful respite offered by the beautiful park.


Special Children’s Program: “Art for Kids.”

Saturday and Sunday, September 7th and 8th

Bring the whole family for a day of inspiring activities in the playground.  Join for child friendly art projects on both days of the show. Check the GSAS website for further information.
