Catherine Sweeney Singer

Catherine Sweeney Singer is the Executive Director of the Winter Antiques Show, which marks its 59th year as the most prestigious antiques show in America, featuring the “best of the best” from antiquities through the 1960s. Held at the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City, the Show provides curators, established collectors, dealers, design professionals and first-time buyers with opportunities to view and purchase exceptional pieces showcased by 73 exhibitors. One-third of the Show's exhibitors are specialists in Americana, with the rest featuring English, European, and Asian fine and decorative arts.

The charitable event was established in 1955 by the Show’s beneficiary, East Side House Settlement. Today, East Side House helps nearly 8,000 individuals in the South Bronx and surrounding communities improve their lives each year by providing access to quality education and technology training as gateways out of poverty and into economic and civic opportunity. Many of the programs are designed to help students complete high school, go on to college, graduate from college, and join the workforce.

At Holy Cross Catherine studied English as well as the History of Art and acted in many alternative theater productions, most notable being a dynamic production of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales directed by Ken Happy, professor of Classics. After graduation she pursued graduate work in Italian Renaissance art at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. She was for some time associated with the magazine Art & Antiques before becoming involved full time with the Winter Antiques Show.
