Americana collectors and "best of the best" object seekers will head to events during Antiques Week 2017 underway now in New York City.

Antiques and the Arts Weekly (aka "The Bee") has published this guide to the week's events, exhibitions, shows, lectures, auctions and more. (The action continues beyond this week to Jan. 28.)

Not to miss: a politically charged exhibition by husband-and-wife artists Justin and Brooke Rothshank will go on view at The New York Ceramics & Glass Fair, which opens on January 19, 2017 at The Bohemian National Hall, 321 East 73rd Street, in New York.

The exhibition Know Justice: Justin and Brooke Rothshank focuses on presidents and their influence on the Supreme Court and is presented by Ferrin Contemporary, specialists in contemporary ceramics that reference historic forms, techniques and concepts. The Rothshanks’ media for this work—Justin’s breakable commemorative tableware and Brooke’s delicate miniature painting—carry a potent extra layer of meaning these days, underlining how fragile democracy is.

The Winter Antiques Show opening night party is also January 19, at the Park Avenue Armory. A recent focus continues on featuring celebrity designers and the addition of modern and contemporary works mixed in with works of all periods, stretching back to antiquity. 

This year's loan show has prime examples of folk art from the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg: Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum: Revolution & Evolution features a selection of some of the finest pieces in its collection.

New this year are collaborative booths that combine the inventory from two dealers of different specialties in creative ways. One will be California dealer Peter Fetterman, who brings 20th century photography, to show with the 20th century American paintings that are the specialty of Jonathan Boos, the New York dealer. David Gill has some commissioned works, such as wallpaper by Mattia Bonetti (b. 1952), paired with historic pieces from show veteran Carolle Thibaut-Pomerantz (booth 66).

For those seeking calmness, Joan B. Mirviss Ltd. will be featuring a carefully selected group of both antique and contemporary Japanese art unified by the theme of “ao,” a term that conveys both blue and green and symbolizes the combination of earth and sky.
