About The Magazine ANTIQUES

Since its inception in 1922, The Magazine ANTIQUES has been America’s premier publication on the fine and decorative arts, architecture, preservation, and interior design. Each bimonthly issue includes regular columns on current exhibitions, personalities in the field, notes on collecting, book reviews, and more.


Meet the Team

GREGORY CERIO
Editor

Gregory is the sixth editor since The Magazine ANTIQUES’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.

DON SPARACIN
Publisher

After 15 years as an American art dealer and gallery director, Don joined 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. His goal is to help maintain the legacy of the century-old title and provide an important forum for dealers, museums, and luxury brands to promote their businesses. Don is a father of two girls, and an avid fan of the New York Metropolitans.

SAMMY DALATI
Senior Editor

Sammy is senior editor at ANTIQUES and editor of the publication's podcast Curious Objects. A graduate of New York University’s Steinhardt School, Sammy has shown his own artwork around the world, and has helped shepherd that of emerging artists into the light of day as a member of the art collective No Home Gallery. Having come to ANTIQUES via the contemporary art world, Sammy has been surprised to learn what’s new isn’t always best.

JENAMARIE BOOTS
Managing Editor

Jenamarie was born in Oregon, but raised in Bolivia and Colombia: the daughter of a carnival worker who became a government agent and a cattle rancher who became a stay-at-home mom. Archival work is particularly close to her heart, and it brought her to ANTIQUES. She is both a textile artist and information professional. Her textiles, inspired by her material experiments and personal embrace of entropy, often consist of bold, colorful, and sculptural designs.

MARTIN MINERVA
Art Director

Martin has been with ANTIQUES for the past 20 years and has been the publication's art director for the last three. He grew up in Rockville Center, New York and now lives in Queens with his wife Debbie and their two kids.

JENNIFER NORTON
Director of Marketing and Development

Jennifer has been involved with ANTIQUES since 1997, first as Advertising Director, then Publisher and currently as Director of Marketing and Development. She worked closely with several Editors, including Wendell Garrett, Allison Ledes, Elizabeth Pochoda, and now with Gregory Cerio. Jennifer is a long-time resident of Downtown Manhattan where she raised her two sons Ross and Samuel.

ELEANOR GUSTAFSON
Consulting Editor

Eleanor, who started at ANTIQUES fresh out of college, stepped back from her full-time role as executive editor in 2017. As consulting editor, she continues to write our Endnotes page, while also serving as our institutional memory and making sure we don’t let our editorial standards slip. In her free time she enjoys the familiar fruits of retirement: traveling, spending time with her four children and their families, and playing tennis and bridge.

Currently Senior Scholar at the Yale Center for British Art, he has previously been Director of the Museum of Arts and Design; Head of Research at the V&A; and Curator at the Chipstone Foundation in Milwaukee.
