American International Fine Art Fair in Palm Beach, Fla.
The American International Fine Art Fair in Palm Beach, Fl. is a Luxist Awards' nominee for Best Antiques Resource.
Celebrating its 14th year, the AIFAF features international dealers representing disciplines of fine art from classical antiquity to contemporary, in addition to some of the finest haute and period jewelry in the world. Considered to be the premier art, antique and jewelry fair in the United States, the fair is fully vetted by leading museum curators and experts.
Prestigious exhibitors from more than ten countries offer an extraordinary array of exceptional works of art, antiques and jewelry in America's most glamorous winter destination. This fair has become an annual destination for serious connoisseurs, collectors, and museum curators. It is an event of exceptional quality.
The fair has strict guidelines as to what it will allow to be exhibited. For European ceramics, glass and crystal, for example, the dateline for factory produced items is the 1950s. Objects that are decorated or painted in a later period are not acceptable. Objects, which have been so heavily restored and/or damaged as to change their original nature, function, or the artisan's intention are not acceptable. All restorations or repairs should be mentioned on labels. Pieces with later mounts are not acceptable. The deadline for studio works is also the 1950s.
In 2010, the AIFAF will be held from February 3 to February 8 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.
