AVENUE Antiques, Art & Design at the Armory promises to be the jewel of this arts season.


The diverse and well-traveled selection spans 65 exhibitors, featuring fine and antique furniture, lighting, art glass, rare books, rugs and tapestries, signature handbags, contemporary and estate jewelry, sculpture and much, much more.


Some highlights include:


The Royal Blue Diamond-one of the world’s rarest blue diamonds, valued at $9.5 million and weighing 10.06 carats!


– A one-of-a-kind Maurice Dufrène-designed Gaveau piano


-Works by Louise Bourgeois, Georges Braque, Alexandre Calder, Jim Dine, Paul Gauguin, Roy Lichtenstein, John Marin, Henry Moore, Pablo Picasso and Robert Rauschenberg


Special tours, exclusive book signings and lectures and presentations by acclaimed art academics and practitioners are scheduled for the duration of the four-day showcase.


A curated selection of photography on loan from the Holden Luntz Gallery, Palm Beach, FL will be the special exhibition at the Armory this year. The images come from Cuerpos Pintados, Chilean photographer and entrepreneur Roberto Edwards’ groundbreaking painted bodies project. Edwards’ portraits are wild and exquisite; they capture the raw musculature, complex textures and wild colors of the human form.


Whether you are a dealer, collector, enthusiast or simply, curious, there is something at the show for everyone.


Don’t dally, folks! Get your tickets now and join AVENUE  for a jaw-dropping visual feast!
