“This new fair will bring 60 – 70 carefully selected, prestigious art, antique, and jewelry dealers of the highest caliber from around the world to Southwest Florida for the first time in a spectacular setting consistent with the other major IFAE international events in Palm Beach, London and Miami,” said David Lester, IFAE Founder and Fair Director. “The fair will take place in a newly renovated 55,000 square foot facility to be designated the Naples International Pavilion and will be consistent in size with our original International Pavilion in Palm Beach where we began our Palm Beach International Art & Antique Fair in 1997. ”
The Preview evening, February 23rd, will be under the patronage of the Patty and Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art.
