ADAA's Art Show Returns to NYC for 15th Anniversary. (Show News)


NEW YORK -- The Art Show will return to New York Feb. 20 to 24 to offer an exhibition of paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints and photographs. Organized by the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA), the exhibition will feature museum-quality works in all genres ranging from the 15th-century to modern and contemporary art. Seventy of the nation's leading art dealers will participate in the fifteenth annual Art Show at the Seventh Regiment Armory. Proceeds from The Art Show Gala Preview on Feb. 19 will benefit Henry Street Settlement, a social service agency on New York's Lower East Side.

"This year we celebrate the 15th anniversary of the show, and dealers have gone all out to bring some extraordinary masterpieces," said O. Kelley Anderson, Jr., director of The Art Show. "This is the exhibition in the U.S. where collectors can see works of art from the nation's most prestigious galleries all under one roof."

Special Highlights

The Art Show 2003 will feature two special discussion programs. Glenn D. Lowry, director of the Museum of Modern Art, will present "A Museum Director's Vision" on Thursday, Feb. 20, at 3 p.m. Wendy Wasserstein, playwright and arts enthusiast, will moderate a panel of leading artists on Feb. 21 at 3 p.m.

Seven new galleries will show works for the first time at The Art Show 2003. The galleries are: CRG Gallery, Danese, Paul Kasmin Gallery, Mitchell-Innes & Nash, Michael Rosenfeld Gallery and Brent Sikkema of New York and Anthony Meier Fine Arts of San Francisco.
