Salon Art + Design now open at the Park Avenue Armory

Donzella booth at Salon Art + Design 2022


Salon Art + Design, which features leading art and design galleries from all over the world, opened yesterday at the Park Avenue Armory, with show dates continuing through Monday, November 14th. The fair, produced by Sanford L. Smith + Associates, presents the world’s best design – vintage, modern and contemporary – enhanced by blue-chip 20th century art as well as antiquities.

What I find especially engaging with this fair is that many of the participating galleries showcase their fine art, decorative art, and furniture within environments – as opposed to isolated objects simply on display – allowing the visitor to imagine how one might “curate” one’s own home. For example, this view of the Donzella Ltd. booth features ceramics by Salvatore Meli, a chandelier by Max Ingrand, along with a collection of furniture, side tables, lamps, and more.

The range of art is quite extreme, as you can see from the examples below: at left, a Kenny Scharf painting on view with Opera Gallery, at right, a late 19th/early 20th century mask from the Ivory Coast on view with Pace African & Oceanic Art Gallery. The eclectic range continued with everything from jewelry by Salvador Dali to an unusual chess set by Aaron Decker made with gold, wool felt and garnet sand, among other materials … I’ll have more on these objects and other booth views coming soon, but wanted to post this now with the encouragement to get to Salon Art + Design at the Park Avenue Armory this weekend if possible and see it all for yourself!
