“Through the Eyes of a Child” will be the theme during the 2016 Washington Winter Show, which is sure to warm hearts — and open checkbooks — through the displays from more than 40 premier antiques and fine arts exhibitors.
Taking place January 8-10, 2016, at the Katzen Arts Center in Washington, D.C., is the 2016 Washington Winter Show, which will feature more than 40 exhibitors and a loan exhibition from Gunston Hall. This year’s theme is “Through the Eyes of a Child”; the Winter Show annually works with local charity partners, including the Bishop John T. Walker School for Boys, THEARC, and St. John’s Community Services. Since 2011, the partnership has generated more than $250,000 for the charities, with that number looking to expand exponentially over time.
Interested parties will be treated to a preview of the exhibitors’ objects on January 7 before the show officially begins on the 8th. Presented by PNC, the Winter Show will also feature an outstanding lecture from best-selling author James Farmer at 10:30 a.m. on January 8. Via the event’s press release: “A professional garden, floral and interior designer, cook, author and lifestyle expert, James Farmer is a young, fresh voice for his generation. His lecture, ‘Inviting the Generations to the Table,’ reflects his love of Southern food, culture and cooking that put him at the forefront of the garden-to-table lifestyle.”
A wide range of fine antiques and art will surely delight all who attend this year’s show. A full list of participating exhibitors can be found here. To learn more about the show, and for ticket reservations and event schedules, visit the Washington Winter Show.
