Between May 1 and May 5th 2013, 15 leading galleries from around America and abroad premiered their work at the NYC Spring Show’s third edition. Some of the exciting participants present were: Phoenix Ancient Art (6th century BC to 14th century AD antiquities); Alexander Gallery (US and European paintings from the 18th to 20th century as well as Asian art, works on paper and antiquities); Gemini Antiques Ltd (Folk Art and Early American toys) and Lillian Nassau (Tiffany Studios lamps and glass; US sculpture and 20th Century design). The five day arts fair, sponsored by 1stdibts and the Manhattan Art and Antiques Center, took place at the historic Park Avenue Armory.
The show opened with a benefit preview party for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), which was by invitation only. At that show, a variety of decorative objects and works of art depicting animal-motifs were gathered by Brett Beldock. A $25 was made to the ASPCA for any item purchased from her works.Read More
