NEW YORK, NY.-The Winter Show announced the participating exhibitors for its inaugural 2021 online edition, taking place January 22–31, 2021, with VIP Preview Access on January 19–21, 2021. The Winter Show’s new virtual platform will feature some 60 exhibitors, bringing together a dynamic group of leading international dealers that represent a diverse and global mix of fine and decorative arts from ancient times to the present day. The Show is New York’s longest-running art, antiques, and design fair, established in 1954 by East Side House Settlement to benefit the community-based organization’s critical mission serving the Bronx and Northern Manhattan. All net proceeds from The Winter Show’s VIP Preview Access, general admissions, and any additional donations directly benefit East Side House and contribute substantially to the organization’s life-changing work.

“While the format of The Winter Show may look different this year, the quality of our exhibitors, programming, and partners remain as engaging as ever,” said Executive Director Helen Allen. “We have worked to create a virtual format that is interactive, visually stimulating, and showcases the quality and depth of the objects presented. We are excited to bring The Winter Show and the transformative work of East Side House to an even greater international audience through our new online platform.”

The Winter Show 2021 will take place on an immersive online platform that allows exhibitors to present a gallery exhibition in a three-dimensional virtual space. Visitors will be able to take in the digital presentations as a whole and view close-up, detailed views of each work. Exhibitors will curate their selections, featuring up to twenty artworks and objects at a time in the virtual space. The Winter Show will also provide a space for discussion and engagement, offering virtual “office hours” for visitors to connect with dealers directly.

In keeping with the Show’s commitment to presenting an unparalleled and high-quality selection of works in the fine and decorative arts, the objects on view in the online fair are vetted for authenticity, date, and condition by a committee of experts from the United States and Europe.

Each year, The Winter Show invites leaders from the worlds of interior design and architecture to lend their voices as Design Co-Chairs, reinforcing the Show’s deep relationship with the design community. The Show’s 2021 Design Co-Chairs are Wendy Goodman, Thomas Jayne, and Frank de Biasi. Their support heightens awareness of the important work done by East Side House, in addition to promoting the use of historic art and objects in contemporary architecture and design.

In 2020 in response to the COVID-19 crisis, East Side House Settlement created new initiatives to address the immediate needs of the communities that bear the brunt of public health crises, including the distribution of food to families through the Harvest to Haven program and education tools to students to mitigate the digital divide and keep students learning remotely.

“East Side House has always prioritized the needs of our community above all else. Now, in a time where families in the Bronx are bearing the brunt of this pandemic—in jobs lost, in household income depleted, and in lives lost—we made sure to step up and mobilize to meet their needs,” said Daniel Diaz, Executive Director of East Side House Settlement. “East Side House is proud to be able to feed over 5,000 of our neighbors each week from our new Harvest to Haven program, conduct thousands of wellness checks with families to make sure they are safe and healthy, and rethink how we can educate our young people in this new environment. Every day, we are inspired by the resolve of the families we serve. The funds raised by The Winter Show help make it possible for us to provide critical resources, programs, and opportunities to empower individuals and make a meaningful difference in our communities.”
