ADAA Member Galleries Will Present Ambitious Solo Exhibitions, Group Shows, and New Works at The Art Show, March 2 – 6, 201

The Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) today announced program highlights of the 2016 edition of The Art Show. The nation’s most respected and longest-running art fair, will take place on March 2-6, 2016 at the Park Avenue Armory in New York, with a Gala Preview on March 1 to benefit Henry Street Settlement. This year the ADAA is pleased to welcome Robert Lynch, President and CEO of Americans for the Arts, as The Art Show’s keynote speaker who will discuss the role of the arts in America’s economic landscape on Friday, March 4, at 6:00 p.m.

Organized by the ADAA, a nonprofit membership organization of art dealers from around the country, The Art Show offers collectors, arts professionals, and the public the opportunity to engage with artworks of the highest quality through intimately scaled and thoughtfully curated exhibitions that encourage close looking and active conversation with gallerists. As part of the ADAA’s philanthropic partnerships, admission from The Art Show and proceeds from the Gala Preview benefit the Henry Street Settlement, one of New York’s leading social service, arts and health care organizations. AXA Art Americas Corporation, a pioneering specialist in the fine art and collectibles insurance space, has returned for the fifth consecutive year as Lead Partner.

“Thoughtfully curated, high quality presentations are a signature of The Art Show—a unique art fair created and organized by a community of art dealers, rather than by an art fair operator. The show's intimate scale which encourages one-on-one interactions between visitors, experienced dealers, and artworks—represents an emphasis on meaningful and lasting relationships, beyond just transactions,” remarked Adam Sheffer, newly appointed ADAA president and Cheim & Read partner and sales director.
