The Philadelphia Antiques & Art Show is this weekend, April 15-17 at The Navy Yard.
The weekend’s programming features: designer Ellie Cullman, consistently recognized by “Architectural Digest” on its AD 100 top designers list; Johanna McBrien, Editor-in-Chief of “Antiques & Fine Art” magazine and InCollect.com; Nancy Moses, award- winning author of Lost in the Museum: Hidden Treasures and the Stories they Tell; and Alexandra Kirtley, Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Curator of American Decorative Arts.
In addition to the designers, curators and authors sharing their stories, there is also a special loan exhibit, “Secret Treasures,” that is filled with unique objects from dealers’ personal collections. Many of the collectibles have seldom been exhibited publicly.
Long regarded as one of the best Shows of its kind in the country, this year’s event also features 58 dealers specializing in a wide range of periods and styles – offering a selection of furniture, fine and decorative arts, silver, textiles, porcelain and jewelry from the 17th through the mid-20th centuries. More contemporary art is being infused into the mix of antiques as well, which is a change from years past.
