May 16, 2011,
NEW YORK-Marking its 25th anniversary, Surtex has opened alongside its usual companion shows, the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) and the National Stationery Show.
This year's Surtex has about 300 exhibitors that are presenting the artwork of some 1,000 designers and artists. Some 70 percent of the artists and designers in the show are from the United States, a turnaround from the early years of the show, in which the majority of the artists and designers were from Europe.
