Big News for the Philadelphia Show
The exciting news has spread as far as the other side of the Atlantic: the Philadelphia Museum of Art will be replacing Penn Medicine as the beneficiary of the prestigious Philadelphia Antiques & Art Show. The two charities will partner on the 2018 show with the expectation that the PMA will take over as sole beneficiary for 2019. The Philadelphia Inquirer has a nice write-up of the transition. While, the 55-year old show has become known more recently as a showplace for Americana, they have actually expanded their scope (and some would say returned to their roots) to include more representation from the English decorative arts in the past few years. The participation of the PMA is expected to create a further broadening with more art galleries exhibiting at future shows. Come see us April 20-22 at the revitalized Navy Yard.
