66th Colonial Williamsburg Antiques Forum: New Findings in the Arts of the Coastal South
Innovative research regularly reveals new and exciting information about the goods made in and imported to the early American South. Previously unrecognized bodies of furniture, ceramics, silver, textiles, and other materials now illustrate distinctive local styles and preferences in the surprisingly diverse communities that stretched from Maryland to Louisiana. In order to better share the richness of this new scholarship, we are unveiling our first ever two-year schedule for the annual Colonial Williamsburg Antiques Forum. In February 2014 we will present New Findings in the Arts of the Coastal South, plumbing recent developments in topics such as southern portraiture, early Annapolis cabinetmaking, and Charleston silver, to name but a few. These presentations will, in turn, provide a foundation on which to explore taste and craftsmanship in the southern Backcountry during Antiques Forum 2015.
The 2014 Forum features a host of acclaimed curators, collectors, and dealers who will share their freshest observations and discoveries. Scheduled speakers include J. Thomas Savage, director of museum affairs at The Henry Francis DuPont Winterthur Museum, Carter C. Hudgins, director of preservation and education at Charleston’s Drayton Hall Plantation, and Carol Cadou, the Robert H. Smith Vice President for Historic Preservation and Collections at George Washington’s Mount Vernon.
In addition to the formal program, Forum guests may register for optional hands-on workshops with the Colonial Williamsburg collections as well as private tours of historic homes in the region. This promises to be an eye-opening Antiques Forum. Please plan to join us February 14-18, 2014, for the 66th annual Antiques Forum, New Findings in the Arts of the Coastal South.
6:30 PM, February 14, 2014 to 9 PM February 18, 2014 Eastern Time Zone
