The Spring Show NYC (which ran from May 3 to May 6), held their Arts' Night Out evening for the bright young New Yorkers who count themselves both cultured and connected on Friday, May 4th.

This was an evening set aside for twenty- and thirtysomethings and young patrons of many of the major museums and cultural institutions around town to congregate for a splashy evening of cocktails, canapés, and conversation about the arts and antiques.

Arts’ Night Out, sponsored by the Spring Show is an annual exhibition organized by the Art and Antique Dealers League of America. The event was held at the Park Avenue Armory and benefitted the ASPCA®, (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) with 1stdibs.com, the premier online marketplace for purveyors for luxury goods, as the show’s sponsor.

While hobnobbing with friends old and new, Arts’ Night Out guests had a great opportunity to meet and chat with top-tier arts and antiques dealers, all of whom were enthusiastic about sharing their expertise and knowledge. Arts’ Night Out was a great way for a fledgling collector—one just starting out or one just thinking about it—to gather some valuable professional insight and advice.

Co-chaired by Emily Collins, Margaret Moore, and Abigail Starliper, the Event drew a crowd of over 600 people. Some of the 63 top-tier international dealers included Phoebe DePree of Phoebe Booth Antiques and Elizabeth Pyne of McMillen Plus. Andrew Ogletree, Pauline Eveillard with World Monuments Fund, Ruth Maudlin, Ondine de Rothschild, and Martine and Frederick Dulles.

The Art and Antique Dealers League of America, Inc., is the oldest and principal antiques and fine arts organization in America. The purpose for organizing the league was to bring the various members of the art and antiques trade closer together to promote a greater understanding among themselves and with the public, and generally to devote itself to the best interest of dealers and collectors of antiques and works of art. http://www.springshownyc.com/
