Unlike the other art fairs, The Fountain Art Fair maintains a non- conventional, less commercial approach in selecting these  artists  exhibited yearly.  In fact,  not all of  these artists are represented by known  art galleries.
I was truly blown away when checking out the photography work of Judy Mauer. She is a street photographer and her photos of mannequins in the storefronts are truly mesmerizing. There is no double exposure  or trick photography used at all. Judy just takes these photos that are reflected from the mirror image that she shoots just standing in front of  store windows.

Brothers Matt & Mark Enger  emerged  in the East Village in 1989  after leaving Oklahoma. They started off doing silkscreen prints and designed limited edtion clothing line. When brother Mark died of throat cancer,  Matt decided to keep going on in his memory. One of the brothers made  this sculpture of a life size day-glo green faux-fur bear. His placing of a skull mirror behind the bear gives this surreal image an extra edge  to it.
