Palm Beach Show returns for 20th edition Feb. 16-21
PALM BEACH, Fla. – The 20th Annual Palm Beach Show will be held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center during Presidents’ Day Weekend, February 16-21. It features both domestic and international exhibitors of fine art, jewelry, silver, textiles, porcelain, Asian art, and more, ranging in date from ancient times to the 20th century. A number of changes have been made to elevate the exhibitor and patron experience. For example, sculptor Gino Miles (b. 1952-) will create an installation for the entrances of the 2023 Palm Beach Show using his large-scale sculptures titled Arches. As patrons enter the show, they will be immersed into a monumentally sized fabricated stainless steel and bronze visual spanning more than 10ft in height.
Miles’s work explores a deep, timeless aesthetic connection to the primal spirit of humanity. In minimalistic yet often monumental sculptures, he interweaves references to science and natural phenomena with the passage of time. These works invite the viewer to look beyond the traditional constraints of form, composition and space into a deeper world of possibility.
The weightless appearance of Miles’s pieces creates a visual contradiction, with heavy metal materials challenging the fundamentally static nature of sculpture. Many of his pieces are kinetic and can be turned, rotated or even spun, allowing observers to change their viewpoint. Presenting such mass in motion with seemingly effortless fluidity invites a challenge to the viewer’s perception of the sculpture.
Patrons can also celebrate a “Day of Design” at the Palm Beach Show on Saturday, February 18, in collaboration with show sponsor Florida Design Magazine. The show invites industry professionals to attend for a day dedicated to honoring interior designers and decorators with curated programing, style spotters, book signings and panel discussions.
Attendees can also expect the return of last year’s Contemporary Focus, a special section located within the Palm Beach Snow dedicated to exhibitors specializing in world art movements highlighting contemporary and modern works of art.
