NEW YORK — The Winter Antiques Show is celebrating its 63rd year as America’s leading art, antiques and design fair. This year’s show is Jan. 29-29, 2017. More than 70 fine and decorative art experts will be in attendance. All net proceeds from the Show benefit East Side House Settlement, a nationally recognized community-based organization in the South Bronx.

The Winter Antiques Show will be held at the Park Avenue Armory, 67th Street and Park Avenue, New York City. The show hours are 12 pm-8 pm daily except Sundays and Thursday, 12 pm-6 pm. Daily admission is $25. Returning for a 21st year, the Show’s Presenting Sponsor is Chubb.

Noted Design Experts Slated to Display and Decorate

The Winter Antiques Show has enlisted some of the top influencers in the world of interior design to be this year’s Honorary Design Chairs: Jamie Drake and Caleb Anderson, Celerie Kemble, and Miles Redd. Selected based on their prominence in the industry and expertise in decorating with a breadth of design materials, this group will be supporting the fair and building on the Winter Antiques Show’s engagement with designers during the Show’s run.

The 2017 loan exhibition, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum: Revolution & Evolution, honors the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum (AARFAM), one of the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia. The exhibition salutes the museum, which is the oldest continuously operating institution in the United States dedicated solely to the collection, exhibition and preservation of American folk art, commemorating its 60th anniversary in 2017. The Winter Antiques Show’s 2017 loan exhibition sponsor is Bessemer Trust.
