Park Avenue Armory, Park Avenue at 67th Street, New York City
After a successful first year, Jonathan Boos exhibited for a second 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 art of the 1960s. Boos exhibited a group of special table-top bush sculptures by Harry Bertoia and important paintings by Charles Henry Alston, Robert Henri, Jacob Lawrence, John Marin, Ben Shahn, George Tooker, and Andrew Wyeth, among others.
In her New York Times review of the show, Karen Rosenberg said, "Most dealers advertise their specialties in focused displays ... but a few try to mix it up. At Jonathan Boos spiky Bertoia metal scuptures accompany postcard-sized paintings by Oscar Bluemner, Arthur Dove, George Tooker, and others."
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 to East Side House and contribute substantially to its private philanthropic budget.
