NEW YORK, NY.- A strong synergy of exhibitors and stunning visual mix of art and antiques of the highest quality are the hallmarks of Anna and Brian Haughton’s flagship New York fair, which returns for its 24th year, October 19-25, 2012. Sixty-seven of the world’s top dealers converge at the Park Avenue Armory for the breathtaking event that collectors, connoisseurs, interior designers and art lovers anticipate all year long. The International Fine Art & Antique Dealers Show, founded in 1989, was New York's first vetted fair and remains one of the world's most prestigious and influential art and antique events.

Extraordinary attention to detail, exceptional specialist dealers, breathtaking variety and exacting standards have established the International Show as the top American showcase of its kind. This glamorous fair brings together works of art that span continents and millennia -- among them many of museum quality. Furniture, paintings, sculpture, textiles, ceramics, glass, clocks, watches, arms, armour, rare books, manuscripts, jewelry, objets de vertu, Fabergé, silver, antiquities and ethnographic art, are among the many different categories included and for sale. Prices start from as little as a few hundred dollars but rise into the millions.

The Preview Party
On Thursday, October 18th, The Society of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) will host the 24th Annual Preview Party for The International Fine Art and Antique Dealers Show. Author, philanthropist and art collector of Orientalist paintings, Shafik Gabr will serve as Connoisseur Chair and will welcome over 1,000 guests who are expected to attend The Society’s glamorous Preview Party. This dazzling evening is Co-Chaired by Mary Davidson, Pamela Fiori, Jamee Gregory, Eleanora Kennedy & Kamie Lightburn, and Associate Chairmen Allison Aston & Sloan Overstrom with Celebratory Chairman Sigourney Weaver. Tickets range from $200 to $5,000.

Haughton Fairs and Vetting
2011 marked the Haughtons’ 30th anniversary in the art and antiques fair business which began with the launch of the International Ceramics Fair & Seminar in London in 1982. Since then, the Haughton's have produced some of the most successful and influential international events and have helped to elevate the standard of fairs worldwide. The International Fine Art & Antique Dealers Show came to New York in 1989 at a time when the practice of “vetting” at fairs was still a strictly European practice and not readily accepted by the shows in America. Brian Haughton said: “The collectors who attend our fairs are generally highly sophisticated in their taste and are often extremely knowledgeable, but the vetting process, which we introduced to fairs in America in 1989, is an invaluable resource that gives buyers the extra security that they can buy with confidence. We believe our Vetting Committee members, some of the most prestigious experts in the world, continue to maintain the most stringent conditions in the industry.”

Although they are well-known for their expertise running highly-successful specialty fairs in New York and London, the Haughton Organization is now keenly focused on their general art and antique fairs: the International Show and Art Antiques London which takes place June 2013 for its fourth year in a purpose-built pavilion in Kensington Gardens, London. Art Antiques London incorporates the legendary International Ceramics Fair & Seminar.
