Changes in Art Shows Offer New Opportunities

by Jim Puzinas on October 7, 2009

We are presently finalizing our exhibition schedule for many of the fine art and antique shows that our gallery participates in around the country.  If ever there was a difficult year, this one was a whopper.  Leading antique shows like the Ellis in Boston and the USArtists Show in Philadelphia, one of our favorites, are not taking place this year. The Ellis Show may never come back , while  the USArtists Show is skipping this year while it retools it exhibition space and moves the show to the Hamilton Building at the Pennsylvania Academy for late September, 2010.  The USArtists Show is one of the few all American art fairs held in this country, its major beneficiary being the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. We feel priviledged to be included as exhibitors.

Some shows like the Autumn Hartford Antique Show being held October 31 – November 1, have changed promoters. Barnstar Productions is taking over the Fall Show in Hartford, CT  from Linda Turner who used to run it in the past.  This venue will be a mixed show of 100 art and antique dealers from around the country.  A number of our clients are already excited that we will be exhibitors at this show. There should be lots of energy and many new offerings.

One show that continues to attract a diverse and high end dealer list is the Boston International Fine Art Show at the Cyclorama in Boston, November 12-15th.  Billed as ”New England’s Premier Show and Sale of Contemporary and Traditional Fine Art”  the show will feature  40 outstanding galleries from the United States, Europe and Canada.  This will be the 6th consecutive year that Blue Heron Fine Art has participated in this outstanding show. Complimentary passes will be available on a limited basis.

A new addition to our 2010 schedule is the Palm Beach Jewelry and Antique Show held in Palm Beach, FL over the President’s Day Weekend, February 12th – 16th, 2010.  If you are in the area this winter, this show is an event not to miss.  Attendance records in the past have been made, with over 50,000 visitors making the trek to this show each year.  Close to 200 of the top US and international dealers will be on exhibit at this show.  We are exited to be participating and look forward to catching up with many of our clients who plan on attending.

Further information on any of our shows is available on our website.
