New York, NY

ADAA Member Galleries from Around the U.S. Presented Thoughtfully Curated Exhibitions of the Highest Quality at Nation’s Longest-Running, Most Respected Fair

The Art Show Raised Over $1.1 Million for Henry Street Settlement

The Art Show, organized by the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) to benefit Henry Street Settlement, closed its 2016 edition yesterday with ADAA member exhibitors, collectors, and visitors alike voicing tremendous enthusiasm for the fair’s intimately scaled and thoughtfully curated presentations of art of the highest quality. Mounted annually at the Park Avenue Armory by the ADAA, a non-profit membership organization of art dealers from around the country, The Art Show 2016 once again fostered a distinct fair environment—inviting active conversations with gallerists and close-looking at works by artists from a variety of genres, practices, and national and international origins.

The longest-running art fair in the nation, The Art Show kicked off New York Arts Week with the annual Gala Preview on Tuesday, March 1, which welcomed over 2,750 guests, including major collectors, international art enthusiasts, and New York City philanthropists. The Art Show 2016 boasted one of the strongest years of attendance in the fair’s history, welcoming approximately 15,000 visitors throughout its five-day run. Together, proceeds from the Gala Preview and The Art Show raised a total of over $1.1 million for Henry Street Settlement, one of New York’s leading social service, arts, and health organizations. AXA Art Americas Corporation, a pioneering specialist in fine art and collectibles insurance space, returned for the fifth consecutive year as Lead Partner.
