Last night, art and history aficionados from all over New York braved the cold to attend the 61st Winter Antiques Show Opening Night Party at the Park Avenue Armory. The show is considered America’s most prestigious antique show, and so of course all of the best designers and collectors were there to enjoy the art, eat and mingle. Guests walked through the beautifully decorated space, completely carpeted in red and featuring individual spaces for each action house.

The Show featured hundreds of exceptional objects exhibited by 73 specialists of American, European, Asian and African fine and decorative art and ranging from traditional to contemporary and from ancient to modern. There was truly something for everyone including, a Herter Brothers “Pompeian” side chair and other hand-crafted furniture for the interior designers, paintings and sculptures by famed artists, such as John Singer Sargent, weapons and antique tools for the history devotees and for the fashionistas, one-of-a-kind jewelry including vintage Van Cleef and a traditional Tibetan necklace.

Exhibitors were comprised of old favorites such as Hirschl and Adler, standouts such as Peter Fetterman Gallery, and a group of new experts, including Apter-Fredericks and Kelly-Kinzle. The Newark Museum’s was spotlighted for its diversity and pioneering collection.

Possible buyers at the event were Martha Stewart, Lucinda Ballard, Emily Rafferty, Arie Kopelman, Michael Bloomberg, Kevin Sharkey, Marc Stern, Leslie Day, George Wilcox, Coco Kopelman, Lee Black and Cece Black.

This year’s Winter Antiques Show runs from January 23 to February 1st. All net proceeds from the show benefit East Side House Settlement.
