New York, NY (PRWEB) May 15, 2012
Hixenbaugh Ancient Art is pleased to announce its participation in the 10th annual Brussels Ancient Art Fair. From Wednesday June 6th through Sunday June 10th, fair participants will exhibit the finest quality authentic antiquities at various galleries around the Sablon Square in the heart of the Brussels art market. Hixenbaugh Ancient Art will be located at Costermans-Antiques, Place du Grand Sablon 5.
For 10 years, collectors, scholars, and curators with a passion for ancient art have attended the Brussels Ancient Art fair. As one of the few fairs dedicated entirely to antiquities, the Brussels Ancient Art Fair offers an excellent opportunity for experienced and novice collectors alike to immerse themselves in the world of collectable archaeological artifacts. As a special event to mark its 10th anniversary, the fair has added an exhibition of Egyptian art, entitled “Ancient Egypt: Masterpieces from Collectors and Collections.” The exhibition will include 125 remarkable Egyptian pieces, many of which have never been exhibited in public before.
Hixenbaugh Ancient Art will be exhibiting over 100 desirable ancient objects at this year’s fair. Of special note is our exquisite Roman marble statuette of Aphrodite. The image of this piece was chosen to represent the 2012 BAAF fair in all of its advertising and press. This beautifully sculpted statuette of the goddess of love and beauty, rising from the sea and flanked by a dolphin will be on display at our fair space in Brussels.
All participating dealers at the Brussels Ancient Art Fair are members of the International Association of Dealers in Ancient Art (IADAA). As a new member, gallery director Randall Hixenbaugh is pleased for the opportunity to exhibit at this prestigious fair. Mr. Hixenbaugh stated, “As frequent fair attendee, I’m excited for the opportunity to participate in this year’s fair and especially pleased that our piece was chosen to represent the 10th edition of the fair.”

At Hixenbaugh Ancient Art, we believe that responsible collecting of antiquities is not only a pleasurable pursuit and wise investment, but an important responsibility. Today's collectors are custodians of the past, links in a chain, preserving the past for future generations by passing their collections on to their heirs, reselling them to eager collectors, or donating them to museums. In doing so, the collector of ancient art reaps the many benefits of acquiring truly unique and thought provoking objects that have come down to us from the ancients, whose influences pervade every aspect of the modern world.
