ARTA is proud to be an approved vendor of the ADAA, and supporter of the most recent edition of the Art Show. Organized annually by the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA), The Art Show provides its audience with a wide scope of cultural experiences, meaningful interactions, and illuminating exposure to phenomenal works of art.
The 2020 edition ran from February 27–March 1 at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City. Our team was happy to support clients on the ground, and took in the beautiful art and presentations as well. Below, a few highlights from Dakota Peschel, our International Shipping Coordinator.
James Cohan Gallery
James Cohan Gallery had a beautiful display of embroidered works by artist Jordan Nassar. I am a sucker for craft-based art and the intricate large scale embroidery works reminded me of tapestries hanging in The Cloisters, each with a poignant story to tell. The booth featured a gorgeous traditional dress from Palestine that served as an example and inspiration for the artist’s dreamy landscapes.

I was intrigued by Alma Allen at Kasmin Gallery – her works are simple but bold. The organic forms and interesting materials drew me in from the hallway. I was particularly drawn to the gold one, it reminds me of a snail!

Marian Goodman Gallery
Tony Cragg’s sculptures always make a statement! Marian Goodman Gallery installed an assortment of his jagged, frenetic sculptures that were breathtaking. I loved the varying materials and sizes and the overall installation was elegantly executed.
Pavel Zoubok Fine Art
I was immediately drawn to Pavel Zoubok Fine Art’s booth featuring a host of large scale assemblage sculptures by Pittsburgh based artist Vanessa German. Her work was playful yet serious with grand sculptures alluding to Louise Nevelson but also the weight and history of racism in the US.
