Park Avenue Armory, Park Avenue at 67th Street, New York City
Jonathan Boos exhibited for the first time at the prestigious Winter Antiques Show. Held at the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City, the show featured the “best of the best” from antiquities through the 1960s. Boos exhibited three special standing mobiles and four pieces of jewelry by the great American sculptor Alexander Calder. Alongside these works were paintings by Oscar Bluemner, Federico Castellón, Stuart Davis, Willem de Kooning, Marsden Hartley, Jacob Lawrence, Guy Péne du Bois, and Theodoros Stamos, among others.
These offerings were singled out for praise in previews and reviews of the show appearing in the New York Times, Bloomberg.com, and 1stdibs.com.
The Winter Antiques Show is an annual benefit for East Side House Settlement, a community resource in the South Bronx. East Side House's programs focus on education and technology as gateways out of poverty and as the keys to economic opportunity. All revenues from the show's general admissions and the net proceeds from the preview parties and other events go East Side House and contribute substantially to its private philanthropic budget.
For more information, see the press release for the show.
