NEW YORK, NY.- The Art Fair Company, which presents the Sculpture Objects & Functional Art Fairs and the Art and Antique Dealers League Spring Show NYC, will launch The Metropolitan Art Show: Art & Antiques @ The Pavilion, a new art and antique fair which replaces The American Antiques Show (TAAS), formerly organized by the American Folk Art Museum, it was announced by Mark Lyman, the company's president.

"The Art Fair Company will build upon the strength of The American Antique Show, which has now ended," said Lyman. "We will add several new components to the mix of Americana and folk art, including modern design and photography." According to Lyman, the presentation of the show will be upgraded with an exciting new layout using state-of-the-art 12 foot high walls and a sophisticated lighting system. Lyman anticipates that the new fair will debut with approximately 45 to 50 exhibitors, on January 18-22, 2012, at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street, with the opening night preview benefiting the American Folk Art Museum. "We respect the tremendous effort that went into creating TAAS by the American Folk Art Museum, and look forward to partnering with the museum for their opening night."

Featuring 300 years of great American design: folk art, furniture, fine and decorative arts, jewelry, ceramics, silver, American arts and crafts, and American Indian art, the former American Antiques Show was considered the premier show of its kind.

According to Lyman, an advisory board consisting of several dealers who were part of the original show is now in formation. "We encourage the active participation of the dealers themselves," he said. "This show is an important venue to many specialists in the field and they are dedicated to building upon the success of the previous show."
