A nonprofit membership organization of the nation’s leading galleries in the fine arts, The Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) seeks to promote the highest standards of connoisseurship, scholarship and ethical practice within the profession. Every year, ADAA organized The Art Show in New York, an event offering intimately scaled and thoughtfully curated presentations of the highest quality.

Once again, members of ADAA join forces for The Art Show 2020 this February to showcase their vibrant programs from across the country. Drawing serious and passionate collectors, arts professionals, and enthusiasts to New York with its ambitious presentations and compelling juxtapositions, the event will once again offer a wide scope of cultural experiences, meaningful interactions, and illuminating exposure to phenomenal works of art. ADAA will also organize an exciting program within and beyond the fair.

This year, there will be 72 ADAA members exhibiting at The Art Show. Moreover, the event will see more than half of its presentations dedicated to a single artist and 19 exhibitions focused on female artists, in addition to vibrant thematic and group surveys.

All the proceeds from their annual Gala will benefit Henry Street Settlement, one of New York’s leading social service, arts, and health care organizations. As David Garza, Henry Street Settlement President & CEO, explains, The Art Show has been the greatest source of flexible funding to Henry Street Settlement since its inception.

The Art Show and the generosity of its patrons allow us to provide our community with access to the arts, academic support for low-income students, mental health counseling, shelter from homelessness and domestic violence, job-placement, and senior services.
