“This then is the impetus behind every show. Expose the best of the best to people. Make a splash and show off mankind’s craft and artistry. It is surprising how intriguing man’s abilities are when applied to the arts and crafts,” writes Clinton Howell, President of the Art & Antiques Dealers League of America (AADLA) on creating The Spring Show NYC. This year, the AADLA, the nation’s premiere antiques & fine arts organization, has announced 15 leading galleries from the U.S. and abroad will make their debut at the third edition of The Spring Show NYC, and the Manhattan Art & Antiques Center is proud to be counted among them. In the press release, Howell thanks the “outstanding roster of top-tier specialists…for the energizing force that each of these dealers imparts to the fair in singular and exceptional ways.” Here at the MAAC, we feel the same way about the following dealers who will be representing us at the Show:
