Philadelphia Antiques Show April 5-9
Special Loan Exhibit:
"Patterns of Pride" Historical
The exhibit includes
china dating from 1820-1860. Images on the pieces depict early 19th
century Philadelphia as the center of the young American republic.
Historical views of
Philadelphia on Staffordshire china represent a significant development
of transfer printing in the history of ceramic art. The blue printed
crockery of English potters, such as Clews, Wood, and Ridgway, document
historical buildings and events in Philadelphia. Much the same as
the paintings on Greek vases, the scenes show the tastes of the
period and illustrate the home life of men and women who were the
founders and major political figures of the period.
Antiques Show is celebrating its 42nd anniversary. In addition
to the special loan exhibit, visitors to the 2003 Philadelphia
Antiques Show will be able to view the best in American antiques
at this nationally recognized annual show. The 2003 Show will run
from April 5-9 at the 33rd Street Armory (33rd and Market Streets)
in Philadelphia. This year's proceeds will benefit the Apheresis/Infusion
Unit of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, and
will be used to expand the scope of clinical services and to create
a state-of-the-art blood platelet donation center. See Special

The image above
is the winning artwork used to promote this year's Children's
Festival. Out of 336 works of art submitted, the artwork by
Peter Rauchet, a 6th grader at Our Lady of Fatima in Bensalem,
was chosen to be used on brochures, posters, T-shirts, postcards,
and on the web. His winning illustration of a diverse, world-wide
circle of children reflects what the words joy, freedom and
magic mean to him. The contest was hosted by Penn Presents
and the Philadelphia Inquirer's Newspaper-In-Education (NIE)
for Delaware Valley school children.
