Recognized as one of the South’s premier antiques shows, The Cathedral Antiques Show is pleased to announce the dates for its 47th annual celebration of antiques and interiors. Scheduled for January 24-28, 2018, this highly-anticipated event features a vetted antiques show, speaker series, flower festival, home tour and patron preview gala.
Eager to build upon the success of last year’s show, 2018 Cathedral Antiques Show chairs, Beverly Gwynn and Dabney Hollis, anticipate another exciting event highlighted by nationally-recognized speakers and its continued partnership with the prestigious Antiques Council. The 2018 Cathedral Antiques Show kicks off with a special patron preview gala on Wednesday, January 24. The show itself opens for general admission on Thursday, January 25 and continues through Saturday, January 27. It features an exciting mix of new dealers and old favorites, with their collections of authenticated antiques, period furniture, jewelry, art and accessories from the past four centuries. The 2018 show closes with a special Tour of Homes on Sunday, January 28, featuring beautiful private residences with gracious interiors, distinguished architecture and timeless design.
This year’s show will benefit A.G. Rhodes Health & Rehab, a nonprofit organization operating three skilled nursing homes in Atlanta and Marietta. “Many of the patients A.G. Rhodes serves rely on Medicaid and need dementia care services,” says show chair Beverly Gwynn. “We will help refurbish an aging wing of a facility to create an area for more person-centered dementia support. With the addition of a wheelchair-friendly nurse station, upgraded restrooms in each patient room, and a warmer, more home-like environment, we are excited to be assisting this fantastic Atlanta institution in bringing dementia care in a non-profit setting to new heights.”
The Cathedral Antiques Show is an annual festival of art, antiques, floral design, and interior design that has been a major outreach project of the Episcopal Church Women of the Cathedral of St. Philip for 47 years. Each year, all net proceeds benefit a designated charity and, since its founding in 1969, the show has contributed more than $5 million to Atlanta nonprofit organizations.
