The Winter Antiques Show


The Winter Antiques Show is America's most prestigious venue for fine and decorative arts, benefiting East Side House Settlement. East Side House is a community resource in the South Bronx with a focus on children and critical developmental periods, namely early childhood and adolescence. East Side House works to enhance the public school system and place college within reach of motivated students. All revenues from the Show's general admissions and the net proceeds from the preview parties go to East Side House and contribute substantially to its private philanthropic budget.

The 2008 Antiques Show will be held from January 18th to 27th in New York City, with the celebrated Opening Night Party on Thursday, January 17th. Young Collectors' Night will be held on Thursday, January 24, 2008.

The 2008 show will comprise 75 exhibitors, including 28 specialists in American antiques and works of art showing the finest in Shaker, Folk Art, Native American, Colonial, Federal, Arts & Crafts, and Aesthetic Movement pieces. A dozen exhibitors feature both American and European antiques including silver, paintings, prints, and rare books and autographs.

Mr. and Mrs. Richard L. Chilton, Jr. serve as Honorary Chairmen for 2008. Alan Rappaport, Bank of America, and Pamela Fiori, editor in chief of Town & Country serve as Co-Chairmen of the Opening Night Party.

That's one of the things I love about living in NYC, all the wonderful exhibits, showhouses and design fairs that take place here are spectacular.

On my lunch hour today, I'm actually going to the International Art and Design Fair.

The Winter Antiques Show is unbelievable and it's fantastic every year. I love the fact that this event benefits East Side House, which makes it that much better.

Thanks for posting about this Ronda.

I have to say that the Young Collector's Night is one of the most fun parties of the year! I had such a great time at the last one. And the fact that it involves art, antiques and a worthy cause, makes it all that much better!
