NEW YORK CITY — The Winter Show, previously known as The Winter Antiques Show, has announced the participating exhibitors of its 2019 edition, to be held at the historic Park Avenue Armory from January 18–27. Under the leadership of new executive director Helen Allen, New York’s longest-running art, antiques and design fair celebrates its 65th Anniversary Sapphire Jubilee. The 2019 edition will feature 70 exhibitors presenting a dynamic mix of fine and decorative arts from around the world, dating from ancient times through the present day.
In 2018, The Winter Show changed its name from The Winter Antiques Show to recognize and embrace the long-established breadth and diversity of its exhibitors. The show was established in 1954 by East Side House Settlement, a community-based organization serving the Bronx and Northern Manhattan. All net proceeds from the ten-day event benefit the organization’s life-changing programming. bodycopy: New exhibitors this year include Charles Ede (London), Erik Thomsen Gallery (New York City), Lowell Libson & Jonny Yarker Ltd (London), Red Fox Fine Art (Middleburg, Va.,) and returning exhibitors Les Enluminures (Chicago and New York City; Paris) and Maison Gerard (New York City).
