28th Annual Washington Connecticut Antiques & Design Show

The 2014 Washington Connecticut Antiques Show will take place October 10-12, and will open at Washington Primary School with the traditional Preview Night cocktail party on Friday evening. This is an opportunity for advance buying and browsing from an impressive assortment of exceptional antiques and contemporary collectibles. The Young Collectors Party will take place on Saturday evening in an alluring setting of curated treasures and modern curiosities from around the world.

Event Co-Chairs Wilson Henley and Bruce Glickman are pleased to announce that this year’s Honorary Chairs are Robert Couturier & Jeffrey Morgan. Wilson Henley, also a Gunn Memorial Trustee, says "We are delighted to have their support for this event, which is so very important to the Gunn Memorial Library & Museum."

The Antiques Show is one of the primary annual fund-raisers for the town's public library and historical museum, which depend in great part upon private contributions in addition to taxpayer dollars. Recent Connecticut statistics reveal that the Gunn Memorial Library boasts double the number of visits per capita of towns of its size, and performs at the top of numerous library measures statewide.

Founded in 1985, the WCAS consistently draws dealers of the highest quality and offers diverse furnishings and decorative arts for both the period and modern home. The show features over 20 dealers from the east coast. Visitors find larger furnishings, works of art, exquisite jewelry, intimate furniture and decorative accessories.
