Thanks to last year’s enthusiastic response from both dealers and the public alike, the second edition of October Art Week will once again take place alongside TEFAF New York and Christie’s Classic Art Week of auctions and selling exhibitions. Nineteen of the world’s preeminent fine and decorative art dealers will open their doors to the public on October 26 through November 2 for this celebratory occasion.
The gallery receptions—open to the public and within walking distance from each other—add to the excitement generated by TEFAF New York. Holding forth at the Park Avenue Armory, this premier art fair (occurring every March in Maastricht, Netherlands) assembles the treasures of nearly 100 dealers from around the globe, showcasing outstanding examples of fine art, design, furniture, jewelry and more.
