The 65-Year-old Winter Show at the Park Avenue Armory is the leading art, antiques, and design fair in America.  Under its new Director, Helen Allen, it features 68 of the world’s leading galleries, experts in the fine and decorative arts.  The result is an eclectic array of stunning items.


The Winter Show is renown for maintaining the highest standards of quality in the art market. Each item in the show is vetted by a large team of experts – 150 – who approve on authenticity, date, and condition.  From antiquities of more than 5000 years as presented by Charles Ede of London who displays ancient objects from Egypt, Greece, and Rome,  to contemporary photography as shown by Peter Fetterman Gallery of Santa Monica, the past and present are richly displayed.
