2016 Art & Antiques Show


Our committee is working hard on the 40th Anniversary Show! Featuring the 1970s, when The Women’s Board and the Art & Antiques Show were created, this year’s Show promises to be a poignant but hip look back at the decade that started it all. From a Sneak Peek with the “Cocktail Chameleon” and a Booth Crawl, to the Opening Night Gala on Friday featuring a disco floor and the RiverTown Band, to iconic lecturers including Goldie Hawn, to our beloved Children’s Fashion Show featuring Wolfson patients on Sunday afternoon, this special anniversary Show promises to be groovy! Catch us on the flip side! After all, “We’ve Only Just Begun!”

Goldie Hawn is simply an icon. Older generations remember well her introduction to America through the 1970s show “Laugh In,” and even younger generations are familiar with her lovely face and work. Academy Award-winning actress, producer and director, she also is a bestselling author and child advocate. Goldie is the founder of the Hawn Foundation, a public charity with a mission to equip children with the social and emotional skills they need to lead smarter, healthier and happier lives. She is the creator of MindUP, a program that fosters a classroom learning environment where a child’s ability to academically succeed and personally thrive is maximized and directly linked to his or her overall well being.

2pm  Floral Demonstration
Margot Shaw, Editor-in-Chief, flower magazine

“A Swell Noel” — floral designs for the holidays

Margot Shaw has loved flowers since she could “pick a pocketful of posies.” Her vision for flower is to provide a publication that will delight and enrich the lives of readers through the knowledge and beauty of fresh flowers, and to expose as many people as possible to the joys of flowering by providing a source of inspiration and education. Her floral perspectives and techniques are amazing, and you will not want to miss her demonstration.
