The Genesis of our Blog: Last October, The International Fine Art & Antique Dealers Show in New York was lucky to have Design Historian (and blogger) Emily Evans Eerdmans blog for us on the fair and the response was tremendous. So many people enjoyed seeing what was happening at the fair, much of it behind the scenes.. Art and antique lovers checked in from far away places, like Chicago and Abu Dhabi! Many couldn’t make it to New York themselves but loved having the opportunity to be part of the excitement, even vicariously. The fun of a fair starts many months ahead for us, when the adrenaline starts to pump and the individual elements fall into place piece by piece. That is where we are now.
We are looking forward with great anticipation to Art Antiques London, our newest fair which will take place in Kensington Gardens from June 9-15, 2011 for it’s second year. Art Antiques London incorporates the venerable International Ceramics Fair and Seminar, the Haughton’s first fair in London launched 30 years ago. The Ceramics Fair lives on within Art Antiques London and with it continues the vibrant and extraordinary lecture programme that is a major draw (a religious experience) for collectors and curators from around the world.

There is much to talk about this year as Art Antiques London ramps up for another run in the Park… from the Charity Preview to our divine lecture programme and Loan Exhibition. Most importantly there are the dealers… passionate, fascinating, obsessed and brilliant in their own way. Each one has a mesmerizing story to tell. So let the games begin.
