Powers admits that is not easy coming up with compelling and complex material show after show. But, he claims his current catalog is thinner than usual, but phat as ever—quality over quantity with no filler!
Powers has put together a collection that among many other objects includes a unique and important pair of African-American (Slave-Made) Andirons, a remarkable folk art carving, entitled, "The Venus of Baltimore," a first-rate folk art carved and painted whirligig, a rare pair of Ojibwa Love Dolls and an Ojibwa pictographic textile, a painting by Westchester County, PA African-American artist Ida Jones, paintings by Adolph Kronengold and a group of seven curiously carved rocks in the shape of men's heads with big mustaches.
Of course, Powers will be bringing more than these works to the fair, but the aforementioned well-winnowed works deserve special attention. Explore the catalog and enjoy!
Come see this collection and more at The Philadelphia Antiques & Art Show, April 20-22, 2018 (*preview party April 19) at The Navy Yard, 4747 South Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19112.
