FALL 2014, NYC
Sept. 25 - 29, 2014
269 11th Ave.

Way back in 1996, Will Ramsay opened Will’s Art Warehouse in southwest London to bridge the public’s increasing interest in contemporary art and London’s highbrow gallery scene. By concentrating on relatively unknown artists not carrying a premium for reputation, the gallery was able to offer works from about $100 up to $5,000 from a stable of over 150 artists. The response Will received from his Art Warehouse inspired him to take his approach to the next level, and three years later the Affordable Art Fair was born.  By embracing other friendly galleries selling affordable art, the first fair launched in Battersea Park in October 1999. 10,000 visitors took advantage of the ease of buying, breadth of choice, affordable prices and user-friendly approach.

The Affordable Art Fair has become something of a global phenomenon, it now takes place in Amsterdam, Bristol, Brussels, New York, Milan, London, Singapore, Hamburg, Mexico City, Toronto, Stockholm, Hong Kong and Maastricht. Globally, over 1.4 million people have visited an Affordable Art Fair and purchased over $339 million worth of art.

Again this year AAF Fall 2014, NYC will be at the Tunnel Space, 269 11 Ave. at 27th St., New York City, September 25 - 29th, 2014. 50 local and international galleries will exhibit a huge array of affordable contemporary art, with pieces by established names hanging alongside work by the emerging artists.

2 envelopes instant latte
1 tbsp hot water
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup superfine sugar
1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup finely chopped walnuts

Put the instant latte into a bowl and stir in the hot, but not boiling water to make a paste. Put the butter and sugar into a bowl and mix well with a wooden spoon, then beat in the egg yolk and coffee paste. Sift together the flour and a pinch of salt into the mixture, add the walnuts and stir until thoroughly combined. Halve the dough, shape into balls, wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375ยบ F. Line 2 cookie sheets with baking parchment.

Unwrap the dough and roll out between 2 sheets of baking parchment to about 1/8 inch. Cut the cookies into 2 1/2 inch squares and put them on the prepared cookie sheets - spaced well apart.

Lightly brush the cookies with water and sprinkle with sugar crystals. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Using a spatula, carefully transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
