The 2023 Capital Art Book Fair
The first edition of East City Art’s Capital Art Book Fair takes place at Eastern Market’s North Hall. The event is open to the public, free of charge.
Over 30 exhibitors from across the DMV, the US, Canada and Mexico will vend books as works of art, editions about art or artists, limited run books, prints as well as DIY zines, graphic novels, prints and art magazines. Exhibitors include artists, independent publishers, small presses, illustrators and photographers.
East City Art has partnered with nearby Capitol Hill Arts Workshop and Hill Center to co-locate offsite programming during the fair. Programming includes panel discussions on art publishing, artist talks, exhibitions and a free children’s art workshop.
DC-based, award-winning artist Carolina Mayorga will create ephemeral, site-specific work using hand-cut vinyl pieces for the 2023 Capital Art Book Fair in Eastern Market’s North Hall.
