Contemporary works selected for the Philadelphia Antiques and Art Show include this oil-on-linen work, Summer of 14, by Bo Bartlett, from the Sommerville Manning Gallery in Brecks Mill, Delaware.
The city’s renowned one-stop shop for the very best in something old now has something new. The long-running Philadelphia Antiques Show returns with a contemporary art component and a new name: The Philadelphia Antiques and Art Show. A fundraiser for Penn Medicine, the show kicks off with a gala preview party on April 14. In addition to an unmatched pasticcio of furniture, silver, art, jewelry, and more from 58 dealers, the weekend’s events include expert presentations and, in keeping with this year’s theme of celebrating the important role collectors play in the field, an on-loan exhibit of invaluable historical items from participants’ personal collections. “We are continuing with so much of what made the show a stand-out over the past five decades, but we also have our eye on the future,” says co-chair Anne Hamilton. “We look forward to cultivating younger collectors and helping them to grow their own collections.” April 15–17, Navy Yard, 610-902-2109
