Due to rising COVID-19 cases in New York City, the Board of Managers of East Side House Settlement⁠—the owner and beneficiary of The Winter Show—announced a decision to postpone the 2022 edition of The Winter Show, originally scheduled for January 21-30. New dates at the Park Avenue Armory will be announced in the coming weeks.

For a third year in a row, Europe's major art and antiques fairTEFAF Maastrichthas also been impacted by the pandemic. Citing "the global volatility of COVID-19" organizers have decided to postpone the edition scheduled for March. Previously, TEFAF Maastricht shut down four days early in 2020 after an Italian exhibitor contracted COVID. Other pandemic editions of the fair have shuttled between dates and been canceled, moving to an online format.


TEFAF Chairman, Hidde van Seggelen, stated: “This was a difficult, but necessary decision, guided by three key concerns: first is the unpredictable nature of COVID-19; second, the significant financial risk to both TEFAF and our exhibitors should the fair be cancelled in the lead up to March; and third is, as always, the health and safety of the TEFAF community, our exhibitors, visitors, sponsors, and partners."

Adding, "TEFAF is a highly-anticipated global benchmark for the art world community and as such, we are exploring all options to ensure the fair takes place during 2022.”
