GREGORY CERIO

The Magazine ANTIQUES, Editor

Gregory Cerio recently became editor of The Magazine ANTIQUES, the sixth since the publication’s founding in 1922. A career magazine journalist, he has a deep and abiding interest in the fine and decorative arts, design, and architecture. He was the founding editor of Modern Magazine in 2009; and a senior features editor for House & Garden magazine from 1998 to 2007. Gregory has a degree in English literature from Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland, and grew up in the city of Annapolis. He has lived in Dublin, Ireland, and Barcelona, Spain.


"Our magazine serves as both a guide and an intelligent companion to a particularly thoughtful and discerning readership made up of collectors, scholars, lovers of history, and aficionados of the arts. They travel, visit museums, and while away hours in antiques shops and galleries. They live their passions and know they can count on The Magazine ANTIQUES as an authoritative resource, pointing the way toward new discoveries."


DON SPARACIN

The Magazine ANTIQUES, Publisher

After 15 years as an American art dealer and gallery director, Don Sparacin joined The Magazine ANTIQUES in September of 2011. Don brings a vast breadth of knowledge of the American paintings market to the publication—an important niche within the magazine’s editorial and advertising content. As a former gallery director responsible for managing significant advertising budgets and schedules, he understands the needs of the advertiser from an inside perspective. In 2015, with 4 years of sales experience at the magazine, Don was named publisher. His goal is to help maintain the legacy of the century-old brand and provide an important forum for dealers, museums and luxury brands to promote their businesses. He looks forward to building strong relationships with advertisers as well as with our print and digital audiences.


“As one of the pillars of the market, our magazine provides the scholarly context necessary to give value to the objects we cherish. This trait is unique amongst the few publications serving the antiques community."

“… Jane Nylander, who serves on the board of Old Sturbridge Village as a trustee and former chair of the collections committee, was leafing through the March/April 2016 issue of The Magazine ANTIQUES this spring when she came across a Bernard & S. Dean Levy advertisement featuring two [John Ritto Penniman] portraits. Nylander brought the portraits to the attention of the Old Sturbridge Village staff and collections committee. …and Old Sturbridge Village was able to acquire the portraits in May.” – Maine Antique Digest, September 2016

ADVERTISER TESTIMONIALS



"Nathan Liverant and Son is a proud supporter of The Magazine ANTIQUES and has advertised there regularly since the 1960s. We continue to regard the magazine as the backbone of the antiques industry. The Magazine ANTIQUES is synonymous with the highest editorial policy and well-documented articles. It is the publication that most students of the decorative arts follow for new developments and the latest research. It is always exciting to view the creative and artistic marketing by the advertisers and our colleagues.

The Magazine ANTIQUES has given our business national exposure to collectors, museums, and those interested in American decorative arts. The magazine has given us the opportunity to direct our advertising dollar to a concentrated audience, and has helped us develop our national reputation. We highly recommend The Magazine ANTIQUES as the premier advertising vehicle to reach an engaged group of subscribers interested in American antiques, art and the antiques industry."

– Arthur S. Liverant, Nathan Liverant and Son Antiques, LLC., Colchester, CT



"In my experience, advertising dollars invested with The Magazine ANTIQUES is money well spent. My responses to ads have always been vigorous and diverse, often resulting in strong sales. I appreciate the professional service provided by the sales and production teams. In an ever-increasingly competitive market, it is crucial to focus one’s energy and resources in a highly focused way. The Magazine ANTIQUES provides that focus for me through its readership. The calls I receive from advertisements in The Magazine ANTIQUES invariably come from serious, sophisticated collectors. It is very common for me to hear from collectors months later that they admired my ad in a previous issue."

– Christopher T. Rebollo, Mechanicsville, PA



"Just a short note to thank you again… You may perhaps decisively refer to me as a nostalgia-buff or a rank sentimentalist…but I prefer to view myself as a new-age kind of guy—“everything old is new again”. It occurred to me that perhaps that’s why I advertise in The Magazine ANTIQUES.

It stays true to itself and its mission, and, in an age of instant-hype, overkill and art-media intent on covering fads and flavors-of-the-month, The Magazine ANTIQUES continues to stand alone, presenting a scholarly approach in its beautiful, glossy pages. It’s called an old-fashioned approach and I guess I’m an old-fashioned kind of guy. So be assured that as long as I can afford to, I will stay loyal and support your wonderful publication."

– Jack Seidenberg, Seidenberg Antiques, New York, NY
