A strong synergy of exhibitors and stunning visual mix of art and antiques of the highest quality are the hallmarks of Anna and Brian Haughton’s flagship New York fair, which returns for its 23rd year, October 21-27, 2011.
Sixty-seven of the world’s top dealers – many of them founding exhibitors – will converge on the Park Avenue Armory for the breathtaking event that collectors, connoisseurs, interior designers and art lovers anticipate all year long. The International Fine Art & Antique Dealers Show, founded in 1989, was New York's first vetted fair and remains one of the world's most prestigious and influential art and antique events. Extraordinary attention to detail, exceptional specialist dealers, breathtaking variety and exacting standards have established the International Show as the top American showcase of its kind.
This glamorous fair brings together works of art that span continents and millennia -- among them many of museum quality. Furniture, paintings, sculpture, textiles, ceramics, glass, clocks, watches, arms, armour, rare books, manuscripts, jewelry, objets de vertu, Fabergé, silver, antiquities and ethnographic art, are among the many different categories exhibited and for sale. Prices start from as little as a few hundred dollars but rise into the millions.

The Preview Party
The 22nd Annual Preview Party on Thursday evening October 20th will again benefit The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Every year, roughly 1,000 partygoers flood the aisles of the Armory among them New York’s most notable art collectors, philanthropists, and business and social leaders. The Preview Party offers patrons a first peek at the dazzling collection of fine art and antiques and the opportunity to support the hospital. Founded in 1946, The Society of MSKCC is a volunteer organization dedicated to promoting the well-being of patients and their families, while also supporting cancer research and providing public education on the prevention, early detection and treatment of cancer.
Thirty years of Haughton Fairs
2011 marks the Haughtons’ 30th anniversary in the art and antiques fair business which began with the launch of the International Ceramics Fair & Seminar in London in 1982. Since then, the Haughton's have produced some of the most successful and influential international events and have helped to elevate the standard of fairs worldwide. The International Fine Art & Antique Dealers Show came to New York in 1989 at a time when the practice of “vetting” at fairs was still a strictly European practice and not readily accepted by the shows in America. Brian Haughton said: “The collectors who attend our fairs are generally highly sophisticated in their taste and are often extremely knowledgeable, but the vetting process, which we introduced to fairs in America in 1989, is an invaluable resource that gives buyers the extra security that they can buy with confidence. We believe our Vetting Committee members, some of the most prestigious experts in the world, continue to maintain the most stringent conditions in the industry.”
Although they are well-known for their expertise running highly-successful specialty fairs in New York and London, the Haughton Organization is now keenly focused on their general art and antique fairs: the International Show and Art Antiques London which takes place June 9-15, 2011 for its second year in a purpose-built pavilion in Kensington Gardens, London. Art Antiques London incorporates the legendary International Ceramics Fair & Seminar.
From its inception, The International Fine Art and Antique Dealers Show has been held with the cooperation of The National Antique & Art Dealers Association of America (NAADAA), a powerhouse trade organization, founded in 1954, which is comprised of forty-five elite American art and antique dealers, many representing firms that have been in existence for over 100 years.

About Haughton International Fairs
Husband and wife team Brian and Anna Haughton, from London, have been a strong force in the art market for nearly 30 years as the organisers of four international fairs in New York and a fifth in London. They were the first to give a substantial body of top European and subsequently Far Eastern dealers the opportunity to exhibit in the United States. Throughout, the Haughtons’ aim has been to create “an international community of interest in art, antiques and design – one in which commerce and academia live harmoniously.” They boldly entered the American fairs arena in 1989 with The International Fine Art & Antique Dealers Show and a line-up of exhibitors drawn from among the world’s most prestigious art dealers, including many of the top names in New York itself and, with them, a fabulous selection of high-end art and antiques. Taking place at New York’s Park Avenue Armory (Park Avenue at 67th Street) it quickly became one of the most important fairs in the world. Prior to this the Haughtons had already initiated their idea of creating an international forum with The International Ceramics Fair & Seminar, held annually in London every June since 1982. Art Antiques London will now incorporate The Ceramics Fair and bring in new and exciting collecting areas.
