TEFAF New York Fall 2016: An Event To Enjoy

TEFAF leads the way around the world for having some of the most esteemed art fairs today. Now, TEFAF NY will be coming with their inaugural exhibit to TEFAF New York Fall 2016 taking place at the Park Avenue Armory from October 21-26. This event is a collaborative effort between TEFAF and Artvest, an independent advisory firm.

Together, TEFAF and Artvest put together a selective committee to evaluate galleries for submission. The judges include four members of the TEFAF Maastricht Board of Trustees and four independent experts from the United States. They reviewed the many submissions and selected 93 exhibitors to be part of their first show.

Exhibitors who made the list include: La Vieille Russie, Adam Williams Fine Art Ltd, Ancient Art of the New World, Ariadne Galleries, Bernard Goldberg Fine Arts, Jack Kilgore & Co., Les Enluminures, Phoenix Ancient Art - TEFAFPhoenix Ancient Art and many others.

As an example of the types of items that will be on display, Phoenix Ancient Art plans to bring as part of their display a cameo with four portraits of Philip the Arab and his family. The cameo is from the 3rd Century AD Roman period and Phoenix Ancient Art will include this with many others in its display. They will also have a two-handled cup of cobalt blue glass presented solely in an exhibition case from the work of 1st century AD artist Ennion.

As a true feast for the eyes, Phoenix Ancient Art is recreating the look of the Pantheon in the Park Avenue Armory, including the vaulted dome ceiling and central oculus illumination in their space. Learn more about their plans as described by Art Fix Daily

Successful Spring Masters New York

Asian-artThe third and final Spring Masters New York just came to an end and was extremely successful.  The international art and design fair – in which 59 galleries from Asia, Europe and throughout America participated – attracted thousands of visitors worldwide.

Hicham Aboutaam of Phoenix Ancient Art echoed the sentiment of success when he said: “Our third and final year at Spring Masters ends on a high note with significant sales. In addition to the knowledgeable and excited collectors, it was gratifying to see an impressive number of respected academics visiting the fair, allowing the opportunity to engage in scholarly dialogue about the exceptional art of the ancient world.”

The event took place at the historic Park Avenue Armory which will next year be privy to a new joint venture by Artvest Partners Michael Plummer and Jeff Rabin together with TEFAF.
