Our exhibition made the Times! Check out their article here: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/20/garden/20shows.html?scp=2&sq=lowy&st=cse.
But more importantly, make sure you stop by! It’s not often that we have a frame exhibition, it’s a rare and wonderful show filled with some pretty gorgeous frames.
The details: the exhibition will chronicle the momentous change of taste in American picture frames from the mass-produced ornamentation of the 19th Century to the elegant artistry of the Arts & Crafts movement. Many of the frames on display are signed and dated by their makers. The exhibit is made up of frames primarily from Lowy’s extensive collection, as well as extraordinary frames from the collections of Edgar Smith, The Gill & Lagodich Gallery, NY and Gold Leaf Studios, Washington, D.C.
The frames will be on display at Lowy, 223 E. 80th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues, NYC from January 24 – April 14, 2011. The exhibition is open to the public Monday – Friday, 10am – 4pm.
Join Lowy as they celebrate their 14th year as the only invited dealer of antique frames to display at the prestigious Winter Antiques Show at the Park Avenue Armory.
