Neither snow nor cold nor winds of winter stopped the steady stream of fair-goers from flowing into the 3rd edition of The METRO Show, which opened with a preview on January 22nd at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea. Among the 1,500 attendees were numerous prominent collectors, curators, celebrities and interior designers who came to check out what the 37 galleries had to offer at their splendidly curated booths.

NEW YORK – This winter’s METRO Show has more to marvel at and drink in than ever before—so much so that fair-goers can hardly be blamed for needing to take a break now and then. Fortunately, this year’s attendees will have the chance to relax in CloudSpace, leading-edge seating areas dreamed up by a crew of faculty, undergraduate and graduate students from the Department of Interior Design at Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute.

Pottery, the Paranormal and Other Visions

Ceramics Fair and Metro Show Offer Inspirations New York’s art fairs are often filled with work by contemporary artists, but here are two that artists themselves might like to attend. With objects culled from attics, forgotten storerooms and the bottom of the sea, or thrown more recently by potters, the fairs this year also seem marked by the marvelous, fantastical and paranormal. Just inside the entrance to the Metro Show, Ricco/Maresca has a large grid of human handprints collect.. Continues:

This week is a real merry-go round of art and antique fairs

Wednesday night, The METRO Show, opened at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea. Now in its 3rd year, this show packs a visual punch with a dazzling array of fine and decorative arts. From ethnographic to abstract art, from outsider to Pop Art, folk art to decorative arts, the fair's message is one of inclusion — that great ideas, great art and great design are best when presented creatively side by side in an integrated fashion.

Art on the Tracks

The same week I received the latest issue of Model Railroader with the Rod Stewart story, I attended a lecture by John Foster at the Metro Show in New York City (the show is a gathering of national art dealers all exhibiting under one roof—so there’s a booth full of Bill Traylor paintings, there a collection of collectible American flags, and elsewhere everything in between, from Philip Pearlstein nudes to old tin toys). Because I know Foster, I was there in part to offer moral s.. Continues:

Five Discoveries Among the Eclectic Curiosities of the 2014 Metro Show

by Allison Meier on February 6, 2014 At the end of last month, the 2014 Metro Show in Manhattan brought a miscellany of oddities the likes of which are rarely seen at art fairs. From art of the occult to sideshow advertisements to deeply unsettling children’s toys, the experience was like tumbling into a cluttered curiosity shop. However, it was a fair, one with over 30 galleries and dealers representing their wares with wild sights like photographs of ghosts and a palm reader&.. Continues:

At the Metro Show, Antiques and Art, From Palm Prints to Picassos

Animals appeared to outnumber human beings when the doors of the Metro Show opened to the public on Thursday morning. Yellow horses bearing Plains Indians, both fighting and flirting, galloped across the ledger pages on view at the booth of H. Malcolm Grimmer. A macabre anatomical model of a cow and brightly colored butterflies adorned the booth of Il Segno del Tiempo. Flocks of birds flapped across the embroidery samplers at M. Finkel & Daughter, and a bevy of beasts marched across the shel.. Continues:
