This is the granddaddy show of them all: AIPAD (Association of International Photography Art Dealers), which will be held once again at the Hilton Hotel in New York City, but with larger booths and fewer dealers (this year a total of 85 booths) than last year, a move to make the show more Art Fair-oriented. The Hilton site had reopened as a possibility when the hotel management changed its plans about converting the second floor space into offices. Make your hotel reservations now. If you mention the AIPAD show, you can get a discounted rate while the rooms are still available.
This year the show opens on Thursday, February 14th (my birthday) and runs through Sunday February 17th. Regular hours for the show are Friday and Saturday, 12-8 pm and Sunday, 12-6 pm. Tickets are $20 for a one-day pass and $30 for a three-day pass. Both tickets include a very fine catalogue of the show with a great cross-reference of photographers and photo dealers. This is a MUST show and again I urge everyone to try to attend--especially this year, for obvious reasons. Vintage Works, Ltd. will exhibit, although we will be in a slightly different location than last year. You can find us again on the second floor, but in booth 236. Just turn left after you get off the escalators to the second floor and then right down the aisle towards the back.
