OCTOBER ART WEEK — INAUGURAL LAUNCH

img_2537 img_2538

Sixteen of the city’s preeminent galleries—all clustered on the Upper East Side—have  kicked 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 which takes place each March in Maastricht, The Netherlands, will bring together the treasures of nearly 100 dealers from around the globe, showcasing outstanding examples of fine art, design, furniture, jewelry and more.

The galleries wanted 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.

Because of the rich concentration of fine art galleries in proximity to the Armory, their goal is to establish October Art Week as an annual highlight of the season.
