NEW YORK, NY.- Fifteen of the city's preeminent galleries-all clustered on the Upper East Side-are hosting simultaneous opening-night receptions to kick off the first edition of October Art Week, October 20 to 26.

The gallery receptions, open to the public and comfortably walkable from one another, are being held to expand upon the buzz and excitement generated by the opening of TEFAF in New York City. Taking place at the Park Avenue Armory, TEFAF, the world's premier art fair, will bring together the treasures of nearly 100 dealers from around the globe, showcasing outstanding examples of fine art, design, furniture, jewelry and more.

"With the opening of TEFAF New York, we thought it was the perfect time to launch October Art Week. TEFAF draws the world's foremost collectors and curators and while we look forward to seeing them on our stand, we really wanted to get them into our galleries, too," says Bria Koser, director of Otto Naumann Ltd., who with Lydia Johnson, director at Robert Simon Fine Art and Frances Beatty, president of Richard L. Feigen & Co., came up with the concept.

Koser and Johnson envisioned some special way to observe the week-long activities swirling around the art world. In addition to TEFAF, Christie's has moved their sale dates to coincide with the fair and Sotheby's, too, is holding their private selling exhibitions of Old Master paintings during the week. "We considered various ideas, trying to come up with an exciting way to bring people together to make the most of everything going on this Fall in New York."
