November 9th marks the opening of the Salon Art + Design fair. Returning to New York City’s renowned epicenter for arts and culture, the 12th edition fair is held at the Park Avenue Armory. Salon prides itself on being an immersive and electric experience for all attendees, whether avid collectors or curious observers. Featuring 50 distinguished exhibitors, the fair shines a spotlight on collectible design and art.
Embracing novelty and tradition alike, this year welcomes new and returning participants such as Bernard Goldberg Fine Arts, David Gill Gallery, Maison Gerard, and Liz O'Brien. New additions range from up-and-coming players in the collectible design space, alongside familiar names in the fine arts such as Galerie Gmurzynska, Halcyon Gallery, and Zeit Contemporary Art. Valuing global and artistic expansion, Salon + Art further serves as the US debut for specific exhibitors.
Moving beyond usual collectibles such as art, furniture and decor, Salon will integrate a special selection of design and jewelry exhibitions for the first time. The wearable art ranges from exclusive capsule collections by specialized designers to smaller gallery curations.
Displayed alongside other works on the main floor, the jewelry exhibitions coincide with the diversity of the fair, which includes vintage, modern, contemporary and blue-chip 20th century pieces. Incorporating elements of timelessness and the avant-garde, the selections will showcase elegant simplicity as well as statement and one-of-a-kind pieces.
To toast this year’s edition of the fair, Salon Art + Design's Executive Director Jill Bokor, hosted an intimate cocktail at One Wall Street with the support of frenchCALIFORNIA, as well as the fair’s 2023 Honorary Committee, including Co-Chairs Nathalie & Laura de Gunzburg.
