NEW YORK, NY.- October Art Week announced its 5th edition that will run from October 9 - 18. This year’s programming will offer by appointment in-person visits and expanded virtual presentations that will welcome art lovers to discover the dynamic fall 2020 exhibitions from top pre-contemporary Upper East Side galleries.

“During this time of upheaval, we look forward with optimism to our 5th edition of October Art Week. We believe this is a vital time to support our Upper East Side galleries, the vibrant local community, and New York’s art scene at large under the current circumstances of the pandemic,” states directors Lydia Melamed Johnson and LeeAna Wolfman.

OAW 2020 has been moved up to an earlier date than in years past to coincide with the fall auction schedule, notably Christie's Classic Week (October 1-20), including their Old Masters masterworks live auction (October 15), and Sotheby's sale dedicated to The Collection of Ambassador and Mrs. Felix Rohatyn (October 14). In addition, OAW continues its support of TEFAF New York and their virtual platform this season (November 1-4).
