The Capital Art Book Fair
The Capital Art Book Fair is an annual event organized by Phil Hutinet that brings together publishers, artists, collectors, and art enthusiasts to showcase and celebrate the world of art books. It serves as a platform for artists, publishers, and independent bookmakers to exhibit and sell art-related publications, which can include artist monographs, exhibition catalogs, zines, photography books, graphic novels, and other forms of printed material including fine art. Featuring a diverse range of exhibitors, including established publishing houses, independent publishers, art institutions, galleries, and individual artists, the fair takes place in Eastern Market’s North Hall in the heart of DC’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Eastern Market has an established outdoor market where independent craftspeople sell everything from household goods to fine art and attracts thousands of buyers on weekends. Capitol Hill is like a small town in DC with its own newspaper, small bank and locally owned businesses.
The 2024 Capital Art Book Fair will take place Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April, 7, 2024 at Eastern Market’s North Hall. North Hall’s address is 225 7th Street SE, Washington DC, 20003. The venue is accessed from the south via the indoor food stalls at Eastern Market or from the north at North Carolina Avenue SE. The market is a block from Eastern Market Metro and there are several public parking garages a block from the market. The event is FREE of charge. Since it is indoors, the event is held rain or shine!
