Although the New York Art, Antique & Jewelry Show is still over five months away, all exhibitor space has been committed for the distinguished event, which will be held at the historic Park Avenue Armory. Now in its second year, the show is one of ten preeminent art, antique, and jewelry events produced by the Palm Beach Show Group (PBSG). According to Scott Diament, President and CEO of the PBSG, The ‘all space committed’ six months before the event is a testament to the incredible collectors that attended the 2014 event and to the overall strategy of growth that the Palm Beach Show Group has pursued over the last four years culminating in a tremendously successful New York Park Avenue Armory Show.”
