The Winter Show 2019
The Winter Show Opening Night Party, held on Thursday, January 17, 2019, was attended by nearly 2,000 people from the worlds of arts & antiques, design, business and philanthropy. The evening provided an opportunity for guests to peruse and purchase highly coveted museum-quality objects before the Show opened to the public on January 18, 2018. Proceeds from the Opening Night Party, and all net proceeds from the Winter Antiques Show, benefit East Side House Settlement—a community-based organization in the South Bronx and surrounding communities.
Under the leadership of new Executive Director Helen Allen, New York’s longest-running art, antiques, and design fair celebrates its 65th Anniversary Sapphire Jubilee. The 2019 edition will feature 68 exhibitors presenting a dynamic mix of fine and decorative arts from around the world, dating from ancient times through the present day. In 2018, The Winter Show changed its name from The Winter Antiques Show to recognize and embrace the long-established breadth and diversity of its exhibitors. The Fair was established in 1954 by East Side House Settlement, a community-based organization serving the Bronx and Northern Manhattan. All net proceeds from the 10-day event benefit the organization’s life-changing programming.
New exhibitors this year include Charles Ede (London, UK), Erik Thomsen Gallery (New York, USA), Lowell Libson & Jonny Yarker Ltd (London, UK), Red Fox Fine Art (Middleburg, VA) and returning exhibitors Les Enluminures (Chicago and New York USA; Paris, France) and Maison Gerard (New York, USA). The 2019 loan exhibition Collecting Nantucket, Connecting the World will celebrate 125 years of collecting by the Nantucket Historical Association, presenting the best the Association has to offer in paintings, craft, and folk arts.
Returning for a 23rd year, the Show’s Presenting Sponsor is Chubb, with Fran O’Brien, Division President, Chubb North America Personal Risk Services, as Chair of the Opening Night Party. The Show’s 2019 Design Chairs are Frank de Biasi, Victoria Hagen, and John B. Murray, eminent figures in the world of interior design and architecture.

Hours of admission are 12 PM–8 PM daily, except Sundays and Thursday, 12 PM–6 PM, and Tuesday, 12 PM– 4:30 PM. Daily admission is $25, which includes the Show’s award-winning catalogue.
