The Salon: Art + Design Fair

For a third year, the Salon: Art + Design Fair will be open to the public on November 13 – 17 at the Park Avenue Armory.

Sanford Smith will be collaborating once again with France’s renowned Syndicat National des Antiquaires, an association that includes some of the most prestigious dealers in the world to bring the second edition of the The Salon: Art+ Design to the Park Avenue Armory this November. The Salon mixes art, design and decorative art objects from 53 dealers from 7 countries. The Salon 2014 welcomes the world’s leading exhibitors in fine and decorative arts and design from 1890 to the present. This year’s roster includes galleries from nine countries—some of whom are presenting in New York for the first time. They bring an astonishing range of material with a concentration of 20th century and contemporary art and design. The Salon is a vetted fair, held to the same standards as its sister fair, the Paris Biennale so visitors are assured of the accuracy and provenance of the items exhibited.

Of the original European dealers, many including names like, L’Arc en Seine, Carpenters Workshop Gallery, Vallois, Galerie Boulakia, Robilant + Voena, Galerie Beres, and Kraemer are returning. Second year veterans Tasende Gallery from Los Angeles and LaJolla, who will once more bring their outstanding 20th century paintings and sculpture. New dealers for the 2014 iteration of the fair include, Seomi Gallery, Todd Merrill Gallery and Galerie Ulrich Fiedler

The resounding success of the Salon was attributed to the addition of the SNA members, many of whom had not exhibited in the United States before as well as the carefully edited booths. The combination of a preponderance of 20th century fine and decorative arts, some ethnographic and antique pieces created a unique and memorable show, which the New York Times called , “a museum in the making at the Park Avenue Armory.”

For over 30 years, Sanford Smith + Associates has held fairs in the Park Avenue Armory.  Conveniently located at Park Avenue and 66th Street, the Armory provides an historically relevant backdrop for fine art, design, and decorative arts.
