Folk art, exquisite prints, midcentury and antique furniture, decorative arts, ceramics, silver, paintings, Asian antiques, marine and equestrian antiques and more will be on offer. Claim a piece of history from the Show to make that special design element at your home or office a conversation piece.

Building momentum towards the Show will be an evening seminar with celebrity antique art sleuth Robert Wittman, founder and twenty year veteran of the FBI's National Art Crime Team. He is responsible for recovering more than $300 million in stolen art and cultural property around the world, including an original Rembrandt self-portrait . He also investigated the famous art heist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. Movie rights to his first book “Priceless-How I Went Undercover to Rescue The World's Stolen Treasures" have been purchased. Today, Robert Wittman is president of Robert Wittman Incorporated, the international art recovery, protection, and security firm.
