Fifty Years – and Getting Better All the Time
– If you want to see a bunch of happy people, go to the Seventh Regiment Armory, Park Avenue at 67th Street, and visit the Winter Antiques Show. There is still time, for the show runs through Sunday, January 25.
The year 2004 marks the 50th anniversary of the show and it appears the exhibitors have gone all-out in both rdf_Descriptions for sale and their presentation. Comments from the dealers include, “Best show ever,” “We have been selling nonstop since the preview on Thursday,” and “There is really nothing like this show.”
To mark this special year for the Winter Show, The Metropolitan Museum of Art is presenting the loan exhibition, “A Celebration of The American Wing,” showing some of the greatest treasures in the world of antiques. This stunning exhibition is at the front of the show and a perfect gate-way to the booths behind it.
This week’s Antiques and The Arts Weekly brings to its readers a short look at the show. A lengthy one will be ready for publication shortly.
