 The American Antiques Show
Benefiting the American Folk Art Museum



What’s Tin Got to Do With It?

 The American Antiques Show
Benefiting the American Folk Art Museum
January 20-23, 2011


Gala Preview: January 19

Marks the American Antique Show’s 10th Anniversary


, NY
, December, 2010 –Tin, the traditional gift for a 10th wedding anniversary, is known for its soft material that is said to represent the flexible, yet durable qualities of an enduring relationship. So, it is timely, indeed, that fanciful tin objects will be exhibited among an array of “best of” Americana at the opening night gala for the American Antiques Show (TAAS), which will, coincidentally, be celebrating its 10-year anniversary. The gala, a benefit for the American Folk Art Museum, will be held on Wednesday, January 19, 2011 (Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W 18th Street, 5:30pm – 9:30pm)


Recognized as one of the most important Americana and folk art fairs in the country, the show takes place during Americana Week in New York City. The gala evening provides a key opportunity to preview the folk art, Americana, and decorative arts before they go on public display the next day -- from January 20 to 23. At the gala preview, The American Antiques Show is pleased to honor the state of Virginia as part of its annual celebration of the 50 United States of America.


This eagerly anticipated American Antique Show is the major winter fundraising event for the museum, and all proceeds from the opening night, daily show admission, and related activities benefit the museum’s exhibition and educational programs.


The show features 300 years of great American designs, including folk art, furniture, fine and decorative arts, American arts and crafts, and American Indian art.  It is known for its distinguished roster of all-American dealers who consistently receive accolades for bringing objects of history, design, imagination, and surprise, the "Best of America," to the show.


Set in an inviting and relaxed atmosphere, the show’s 41 dealers will exhibit a broad range of fresh material from the 18th to the 20th centuries that appeals to seasoned and novice collectors, curators, and interior designers. Noted for the consistently high level of exceptional antiques, this year’s show will also feature fine objects that are affordably priced.  


The rich mix of Americana and American folk art on view includes handsome 18th century furniture; striking folk paintings; anniversary tin; dynamic sculpture (such as decoys, weathervanes, trade signs and show figures, carousel animals, 20th century three-dimensional objects); textiles (schoolgirl needlework, samplers, quilts, and rugs); American Indian material; Shaker furniture; game boards; tramp art; toys; jewelry; idiosyncratic works of art; and decorative art such as silver, glass, and Tiffany lamps.


 Four new dealers complement the returning exhibitors and add a further sense of discovery and renewed vigor to the collecting areas that visitors to this show enjoy:


·         Andrew Edlin Gallery, NYC

Outsider and Contemporary Art
Galerie St. Etienne

Austrian and German Expressionism, Self-Taught and "Outsider" Art, and Sue Coe

·         Leatherwood, Sandwich, MA

Child's Mugs and Plates, Nautical and Woolies, and Unusual and Whimsical Objects

·         Outsider Folk Art Gallery, Reading, PA

18th-20th Century Folk Art, with an Emphasis on Sculptural Objects, Contemporary Self-Taught, and Outsider Art


The museum presents an extensive Educational Series to enhance the visitor’s perception and enjoyment of the objects on view at the show.   The educational events series is offered to the public as an extension of the museum's mission to spread the knowledge and appreciation of folk art.  Attendees will learn firsthand from museum experts about material displayed by the top dealers in their field.
