New York Ceramics Fair kicks off New York’s Winter Antique Week

The New York Ceramics Fair launches its tenth annual appearance New York’s Winter Antiques Week with a preview opening on Tuesday, Jan. 20, followed by a Jan. 21-25 run at the National Academy Museum.

Since 2000 the New York Ceramics Fair has been the first-to-open of the Winter Antiques Week’s shows which, in addition to the Winter Antiques Show at the Park Avenue Armory, includes The American Antiques Show at the New York Pavilion and Antiques at the Armory. The 40-exhibitor Ceramics Fair features a stalwart group of regularly returning galleries, comprising the leading porcelain, pottery, glass and export dealers in Europe and the U.S. 

The 2009 fair will offer a series of nine lectures over its four-day run presented by ceramicists, scholars and authors. The fair’s 2009 Loan Exhibit will be “A Hidden Treasure: Chinese Export Porcelain from the Reeves Collection at Washington and Lee University.” Curator of the collection, Ron Fuchs, II, will lecture on the exhibit at noon on Saturday, Jan. 24.
