THE SALON: ART + DESIGN RETURNS TO THE PARK AVENUE ARMORY NOVEMBER 14-18

In November 2012, The Salon: Art + Design premiered to rave reviews.   Sanford Smith, the eminent New York fair organizer, created the Salon in conjunction with the Syndicat National des Antiquaires, Europe’s most prestigious dealer association.  Last year’s Salon was enthusiastically received, The New York Times calling it, “a museum in the making at the Park Avenue Armory.”

The Salon hosts an eclectic mix of art, design and decorative art objects from 53 exhibitors in 7 countries. Material includes modern and contemporary furniture, lighting and decorative arts from modern master designers and architects side by side with work from intriguing designers on the rise.  Similarly, the most important artists from the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries are joined by some of today’s most innovative young artists. Adding interest to the mix is the presence of three world-renowned ethnographic galleries from Paris.

The appeal of the Salon lies in the eclectic mix of work and elegantly curated booths, many of which have been created by well-known designers.  Its resounding is also attributed to the addition of the SNA members, many of whom had never exhibited in the United States.
