The Winter Show 2021 is America’s leading fine art antiques show. It is normally held at the Park Avenue Armory in the Upper East Side in late January. The Winter Show used to be called “The Winter Antiques Show.”
It’s the only place in New York City we know where you can buy a real suit of armor. Buying antiques can be a tricky business, but objects sold at this antiques fair are pre-vetted for quality by the show’s curators.
The 2021 Winter Show
The 2021 Winter Show goes virtual for the COVID-19 pandemic at thewintershow.org from January 22-31, 2021 with VIP Previews January 19-21, 2021 for $500+.
This year’s virtual show features about 60 exhibitors. The new virtual platform gives exhibitors a three-dimensional virtual space to work with. It’s like having a booth online. Exhibitors can feature up to twenty works.
This year’s Latin galleries include:
- Carolle Thibaut-Pomerantz of Paris, France 🇫🇷.
- Les Enluminures, an illuminated book vendor based in New York, Chicago and Paris 🇫🇷.
- Throckmorton Fine Art, vintage Latin American photography and pre-Columbian art dealer based in New York 🇲🇽 🇵🇪.
Many other galleries have a broader focus, but sell some Latin works. This year’s design co-chairs are Wendy Goodman, Thomas Jayne and Frank de Biasi.
A Benefit for East Side House Settlement
The Winter Show’s net proceeds from admissions (not sales) benefit East Side House Settlement, which provides education-centered social services to residents of the South Bronx and Upper Manhattan.
If you think this is just for fancy Upper East Side folks, think again. It’s owned by East Side House and benefits people in Latin and Black neighborhoods.
The Settlement’s COVID-19 Harvest to Haven program feeds 5,000 people each week. The organization also distributes home learning kits to give kids the tools they need to participate in this year’s virtual learning environment. East Side House also does outreach to senior citizens in the community.
