An inaugural show dubbed art + design new york will showcase the best in three-dimensional art and design including ceramics, wood, textiles, glass and sculpture, as well as contemporary jewelry, painting and photography at 82 Mercer Street in Soho, May 8-11. An opening night preview gala will take place Wednesday, May 7.
"We are very excited to debut art + design new york with a strong roster of leading international galleries," said Donna Davies, director of the fair. “With Frieze New York as the anchor for the art world in the month of May, we think it's a great time for galleries to be in New York and we look forward to being part of the exciting week.”

Since then, the duo has continued to grow through acquisitions and new show development. The company currently owns, manages and produces 21 gift, decorative accessory, souvenir and resort merchandise trade shows throughout the United States.
