WIJW is heading to the world class American International Fine Art Fair next week in Palm Beach – an exceptional source for museum quality paintings, sculpture, and antiques. This trendsetting fair caters to the uber chic and discerning collector, and gathers together renowned dealers from around the world to showcase only the best of the best.

My dear friend Stefanie Rinza, managing director of the esteemed Carlton Hobbs gallery, observes that a growing number of contemporary art collectors are snatching up top tier antiques – “We’re seeing younger collectors with contemporary art in their homes’ minimalist interiors now buying truly important antiques which they perceive as works of art” – a perspective we here at WIJW are happy to share! We look forward to bringing you the highlights from this fair which will include our friends at Carlton Hobbs and many others.

The vernissage preview evening, a highlight of the Palm Beach social season benefiting the Norton Museum, will open the fair February 2 from 6-10 p.m.

AIFAF, considered the “crown jewel” of fairs, opens to the public beginning Wednesday, February 3. Hours are noon to 7 p.m. through February 7 and noon to 6 p.m. on February 8.

A list of the stellar exhibitors is available on the AIFAF website.

We hope to see you there!

I’m photographed at the exquisite Carlton Hobbs Gallery enjoying the Jean-Luc Baroni collection of Master paintings and drawings being exhibited at the Gallery – Hobbs featured pieces from their collection that related to the time frame of the paintings and drawing being exhibited, creating a truly sublime synergy that absolutely must be seen!

Feeling a bit Captain Von Trapp, I’m wearing a Tyrolean charcoal wool tweed and leather jacket, black wool flannel pants, black sued and leather loafers, silver chain link belt and black silk tie all by Gucci, white and green stripe cotton shirt with french cuffs by Turnbull and Asser, black pearl Seaman Schepps cuff links, forest green leather gloves are Sermoneta, Rolex submariner watch.
