NEW YORK.- The Art Show, America''s most prestigious art fair, has announced an outstanding list of exhibitors for 2007, comprising top galleries from across the country. Seventy of the nation''s leading art dealers will participate in The Art Show from February 22 - 26, 2007, at the Seventh Regiment Armory, Park Avenue at 67th Street, New York City. Organized by the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) for the 19th year, the show will feature museum-quality works including paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, photographs and ceramics from the 19th century to the 21st century. The Art Show and its Gala Preview on February 21, 2007, will benefit Henry Street Settlement, one of New York City''s best-known and most effective social services and arts agencies.
"For 2007, we have assembled an extraordinary group of the most important and influential art dealers working in the U.S. today. From key emerging and established artists to the greats of the last century, we have once again struck the right balance of contemporary and Modern work," said Roland Augustine, the new President of the ADAA and partner in Luhring Augustine. "Collectors consistently look forward to The Art Show as they enjoy its intimate scale, allowing them to visit exhibiting galleries multiple times."
The Art Show 2007 will offer the largest number to date of new galleries to show at the fair, including Sonnabend, Andrea Rosen Gallery, D''Amelio Terras, and Peter Freeman, Inc. all of New York; Rhona Hoffman Gallery and Donald Young Gallery of Chicago.
Linda Blumberg, the new Executive Director of ADAA, added, "The remarkable roster of Art Show exhibitors clearly displays the extraordinary collective knowledge and connoisseurship of ADAA members."
The month of February 2007 offers a landmark event in New York City''s art world as The Art Show will be concurrent with The Armory Show held at the Piers. To provide a continuous flow of information and opportunities for collectors, both fairs are collaborating for the first time on ways to best serve the collecting and art loving communities which attend.
"I''m a great believer in synergistic relationships. We view this as a complementary initiative for both organizations'' long term goals," noted Augustine. Exhibitors: Top New York City galleries exhibiting in The Art Show 2007 include Cheim & Read, Richard L.
