NEW YORK, NY.- The Art Show 2015, organized by the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) to benefit the Henry Street Settlement, concludes with high sales after a five-day run from March 4-8 at the historic Park Avenue Armory. Opening a week of arts activities throughout New York City, the 27th edition of The Art Show was inaugurated with a Gala Preview to benefit the Henry Street Settlement on Tuesday, March 3rd, attended by 2,600 guests.

Attendance at the country’s longest running fine art fair was exceptional. The celebration began with a ribbon-cutting ceremony led by Tom Finkelpearl, New York City’s Commissioner of Cultural Affairs. An abundance of collectors, museum curators, artists, art enthusiasts and press came to view the outstanding works presented by 72 of the nation’s leading art galleries, all members of the ADAA. The Gala Preview raised approximately $1 million for the Lower East Side’s Henry Street Settlement, one of New York City’s most effective social services agencies.

Sold out booths include Sean Kelly Gallery’s presentation of sculptures by Antony Gormley and Michelangelo Pistoletto’s mirrored works at Luhring Augustine. As of Sunday morning, March 8, Marianne Boesky Gallery had nearly sold out of their works by Donald Moffett, priced $60,000-85,000 each. Other impressive sales include Maureen Gallace’s paintings at 303 Gallery, $47,000 each, and Anthony Meier Fine Arts’ presentation of works on paper by Sarah Cain, priced up to $22,000 each.

Angela Westwater of Sperone Westwater reflected that: “We’ve participated in The Art Show since its inception, but this year has been particularly positive with Barry X Ball's solo show. We have been visited by collectors, as well as scholars and curators from all over, who have told us how much they've enjoyed seeing Barry's sculptures and talking to the artist.”

Dennis Yares of Yares Art Projects noted: “The Art Show encompasses the most elite and established galleries in the country on one stage where the collector and general audience are exposed to works of art typically reserved for museums, works of art that prompt absorbing dialogue.”

Meredith Ward of Meredith Ward Fine Art commented on the show’s reputation for curated, museum-quality presentations: “This fair puts the art first. The focus is on the art and not the spectacle.”

Lehmann Maupin presented a solo exhibition of works by Tracey Emin, who stated: “I have loved showing at the ADAA. It's given me a platform to show my work in a totally different context.”

Jane Kallir at Galerie St. Etienne remarked that: “Our 75th anniversary installation, stressing our history of eclecticism, really seems to have struck a chord. We had strong sales; everything from Egon Schiele to Grandma Moses.”

Pavel Zoubok of Pavel Zoubok Gallery reported: “This year’s Art Show has been great for us. We’ve had strong sales and also made wonderful acquisitions for our clients and for the gallery.”

Eric Brown of Tibor de Nagy extolled: “The Art Show has become a New York City institution. Our clients come from around the world to see some of today's highest quality art under one roof. It is the high point of the gallery's season. Our calendar is marked for next year!”
