Buyer's and Seller's Bible
The prestigious and exclusive Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) has launched its new free online Collector's Guide.
The slim, 48-page, free pamphlet is a guide to the fine art
world and provides a primer on buying and selling and the role of dealers in the marketplace.
Plugs for dealers crop up ("One can easily overpay at auction, and when selling at auction, one may well net
less than by selling through a dealer"). Yet the advice is often considered and fair. The ADAA is a non-profit association whose members include many of North America's best galleries.

ADAA Distributes Relief Funds to Art Galleries
Immediate grants will assist in recovery and restoration
of art spaces
November 2012, New York, City—The
Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) today announced the first
recipients of the ADAA Relief Fund emergency grants. Wallspace, Bortolami
Gallery, Derek Eller Gallery, and Printed Matter, Inc. are the first
recipients of grants distributed to rebuild galleries after the catastrophic
damage wrought by Hurricane Sandy. Initiated by ADAA members in response to
the devastation wrought by the storm, the funds provide support for member
and non-member galleries in the process of restoration.
Executive Director, Linda Blumberg explained the urgency
of the grants, stating “We are making resources available as quickly as
possible to the galleries most at-risk and we believe that these emergency
grants will provide much needed funds that will help restore the community.
ADAA dealers are committed to supporting their colleagues and have responded
with extraordinary generosity.”
In the week
following the launch of the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) Relief
Fund, donations from all sectors of the arts community have more than
doubled the grant monies available to galleries and non-profit organizations
affected by Hurricane Sandy. Pledges have come from galleries, private
collectors, publications, and other non-profits and industry supporters to
bring the total funds available to over $500,000.
Following a walk through and visit to some of the
impacted galleries with Mayor Michael Bloomberg, ADAA President, Lucy
Mitchell-Innes reflects on the contributions of her colleagues, noting,
“This has been an extraordinary time for the art community to come together.
Galleries uptown and out of town, and even galleries that have been impacted
themselves have joined forces to support those galleries in need that mean
so much to the art world’s overall wellbeing. Along with generous donations
from private collectors, and other supporters these significant financial
contributions have prepared the ADAA Relief Fund to meet the needs of
galleries recovering from the storm.”
Contributions to the ADAA Relief Fund are an investment in the future of the
arts community, and Art Basel’s $50,000 donation is a commitment to that
community. Art Basel Director Marc Spiegler explains, “Having seen firsthand
the devastating effects of the storm upon so many of Chelsea’s galleries, it
is clear that its impact will last far past the point of when the spaces
reopen. There is an urgent need to help these small businesses bridge this
difficult period, so Art Basel has joined the ADAA Relief Fund’s initiative,
which provides critical support - not only for our exhibitors, but for many
other important players in New York’s art scene. And we urge others to help
in whatever way they can.”
Over $250,000 in
total contributions to the fund have already been received, including
$50,000 contributions from The Pace Gallery, Mitchell-Innes & Nash, and
David Zwirner. Significant support was also provided by Rena Bransten
Gallery, Tibor deNagy, Ronald Feldman Fine Arts, Inc., Forum Gallery, Sean
Kelly Gallery, Barbara Krakow Gallery, Dominique Levy, Metro Pictures,
Mnuchin Gallery and Dorsey Waxter. Private collectors such as Peter and Jill
Kraus and Howard and Cindy Rachofsky’s foundation, TWOxTWO for AIDS and Art,
have contributed significantly, and publications such as ARTFORUM, The Art
Newspaper, and ARTNews are promoting the fund. The fund has also received
notable contributions from other arts organizations, such as: Art.sy,
ArtSpace, Association of Professional Art Advisors, FITZ & CO, and ICI.
Unsolicited donations from individual ADAA members were
offered immediately following the announcement of the ADAA Relief Fund.
David Zwirner, whose own gallery sustained severe and extensive damage
notes, “We are grateful that our gallery has the resources to recover
swiftly from the storm, but we recognize that some of our valued colleagues
are in vulnerable positions. The ADAA Relief Fund will help galleries to
restore their spaces and continue their vital contributions to the art
community.” Zwirner’s donation of $50,000 will go directly to helping the
most at risk galleries rebuild and open for business.
The ADAA Relief Fund will continue providing grants and
loans for member and non-member galleries that have been unable to conduct
business due to hurricane damage. Recipient galleries are being identified
and prioritized by need, and must meet criteria which include: catastrophic
damage that prohibits gallery business, drastically impaired cash flow, and
demonstrated risk of a business’s permanent closure. For more information,

Gala Preview on March 1st to Benefit Henry Street Settlement
On March 2, 2011, the country’s longest running national
art fair, The Art Show, will open its doors at the Park Avenue Armory in New
York City. Now in its 23rd year, The Art Show assembles the nation’s most
influential and prominent art dealers to present museum quality exhibitions
of art ranging from cutting-edge, 21st century works, to museum-quality
pieces from the 19th and 20th centuries. Organized by the Art Dealers
Association of America (ADAA) to benefit Henry Street Settlement, the fair’s
commitment to curatorial expertise and diversity is ever-present in the
show’s conception, presentation, and execution.
The 2011 Art Show will include outstanding solo and two-person exhibitions,
including new work from Rachel Whiteread at Luhring Augustine and Jessica
Stockholder at Mitchell-Innes & Nash. Ameringer│McEnery│Yohe will bring a

Zoubok Gallery’s TEN: Redefining Collage, and Pace Prints & Pace Primitive’s
Iconic Images - Matisse, Picasso, and African Art.
ADAA President Lucy Mitchell-Innes spoke of the distinct character of The
Art Show, noting, “ADAA dealers will be mounting exceptional installations
and exhibitions. With almost 30 solo and artist focused booths, and an
impressive roster of thematic and group exhibits, the expert knowledge and
curatorial gravitas of ADAA dealers distinguishes The Art Show.” Linda
Blumberg, ADAA’s Executive Director, remarked on the experience of
collectors at the show, “Art collectors appreciate The Art Show not only for
the excellent material our dealers exhibit, but also the calm and intimate
atmosphere, which presents an ideal opportunity to purchase works in a
Aligning with newer fairs, such as The Armory Show and other concurrent
expositions during the first week of March, The Art Show will celebrate New
York’s iconic status as the center of the cultural world. Adam Sheffer,
Chairman of The Art Show Committee, notes “While New York is an arts capital
all year round, by bringing together the very best work from American
galleries across the country, The Art Show’s presence in the city further
illustrates the central role of US galleries and ADAA member dealers.”
Daily admission to The Art Show from March 2-6, and its Gala Preview on
March 1, 2011, will benefit Henry Street Settlement, one of New York City’s
best-known and most effective social services and arts agencies.
