The Winter Antiques Show is the leading art, antiques, and design fair in America, featuring 70 of the world’s top experts in the fine and decorative arts. Held at the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City, the Show highlights a dynamic mix of works dating from ancient times through the present day, and maintains the highest standards of quality in the art market. Each object at the fair is vetted for authenticity, date, and condition by a committee of 150 experts from the United States and Europe.
As described the New York Times’ art critic Roberta Smith, “The Winter Antiques Show is a … galaxy of colliding worlds. Nearly every booth provides a glimpse into some areas of visual culture, from Egyptian antiquities to American folk art to postwar Italian art glass.”
Thomas Jayne, along with Wendy Goodman and Gil Schafer, will serve as this year’s Design Co-chairs, lending their voices to advocate for the use of historic art and objects in contemporary interiors and highlighting the important work of the event’s charity beneficiary, East Side House Settlement, a community-based organization in the South Bronx. East Side House works with schools, community centers and other partners to bring quality education and resources to residents of the Bronx and Northern Manhattan. Recognizing education as the key to economic and civic opportunity, the organization helps approximately 10,000 individuals improve their lives each year with programs ranging from basic literacy to specialized technology training.
