Jacksonville’s 2013 Art & Antiques Show is right around the corner. We look forward to seeing some of our favorite long-time dealers and welcoming several new, unique dealers who will make their debut this year’s A&AS.
To help you get ready to Shop the Show, here’s a sneak peak from this year’s art and antiques dealers.
Asheville, NC fans will be thrilled to see Village Antiques at Biltmore display their fine treasures. Village Antiques offers an outstanding selection of period furniture and decorative art hand-picked by a trio of proprietors with 65 years of combined experience.
The Antique & Design Center of High Point will showcase their eclectic mix of Continental Glam and Midcentury Modern.
Those interested in small treasures will love The Antique Box Shop, specializing in antique boxes and caddies from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales (circa 1790-1890).
For those with a classic design aesthetic, visit Kevin Perry who serves discerning clients from all over the east coast and divides his time between Camden, South Carolina and West Palm Beach, Florida.
The Ballroom of the Prime F. Osborn III Convention Center will be home to many of our new dealers:
Visit Artist Bonnie Fuchs during the weekend of the Show. Alexander & Victor Fine Art of Mississippi describes Bonnie Fuchs as loving all things neutral with the end result being pieces that “breath elegance.” This self-taught artist was born in Jackson, Mississippi and raised in Dallas, Texas. She started painting after relocating to the shores of coastal Alabama’s beautiful Mobile Bay.
Martha Stewart herself is a big fan of our new dealer Bob Withington from York, Maine. According to Ms. Stewart’s blog, she always enjoys “their European and American antiques, decorative arts, garden ornaments, lighting, and mirrors.”
The Ballroom will host B&B Johnson from Kennebunk, Maine and Michael Whittemore, a prestigious dealer out of Punta Gorda, Florida who specializes in Americana and weathervanes.
Daria de Koning will bring beautiful bobbles, the perfect holiday gift. Daria designs one-of-a-kind pieces that stand out in a crowd. She often incorporates antique elements, each piece is sure to become a stylish statement.
We hope that you will visit these featured dealers who are new to this year’s Art & Antiques Show and located in the Grand Lobby and the Ballroom.
A great time to take note of all the new faces and treasures is the Opening Night Party. Be sure to stop in the Ballroom for some fantastic Indian-inspired appetizers including our curry bar.
