THE PALM BEACH SHOW 2021: my editor's picks from the cream of the crop

The 18th annual, perpetually well-received and widely attended art and cultural event on Palm Beach united top collectors and exhibitors live & in-person. Here's what I loved most.

As much as we've adapted Zoom-wise and all, nothing can replace a face-to-face human interaction.


And considering the nature of the business being done at The Palm Beach Show - where serious collectors come for serious items - a super high-end assemblage of fine art, antiques, and jewelry spanning numerous genres and eras - what a coup it was that The Palm Beach Show Group defied the odds and made it happen in the optimal way: live!





“The Palm Beach Show debuted as the first major art event of 2021, giving it a huge advantage for exhibitors to get back to business,” stated Scott Diament, Palm Beach Show Group president and CEO. “We are proud to have forged ahead through the difficulties and uncertainties that COVID-19 challenged us with.”


Well, I'm not a collector... but I am an enthusiast, and I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't serve you the stuff that got my heart racing just a few weeks ago.
