The spring edition of the Houston Antiques + Art + Design Show is no more. Scheduled for March 15 to 17 at Silver Street Studios, the biannual design event — masterminded by Rosemary Krieger and Gordon Merkle and produced by Dolphin Promotions (well-known for its glamorous Palm Springs show) — has been forced to make the difficult decision to cancel its spring show for a renewed focus on the HA+A+DS fall edition.
Date conflicts lead to a lower dealer count than desired, which was only exacerbated after a few more last-minute exhibitor cancellations, Krieger tells PaperCity.
However, Houston Antiques + Art + Design will return and has already secured its fall show dates: Friday, September 20 through Sunday, September 22 at Silver Street Studios. The extensive show, featuring finds from the Queen Anne era through Art Deco and 20th-century modern, is using the cancellation of the spring show as a way to reset for a bigger and better fall show.
In an email to PaperCity, Krieger says the new September dates, “align perfectly with Round Top, allowing out-of-town dealers to do both shows in single trip to Texas.
“Many of the dealers who were not able to participate in the spring show have told us they will be present at the fall show. ”
Indeed, the roster of exhibitors set for this September’s show is already long and impressive. Houston-based stalwart (and Antiques Roadshow mainstay) David Lackey Antiques has confirmed his participation, along with fellow Texan Lynne Brody Antiques out of Austin.
A few other dealers primed for September include Antique Legacy out of Upland, California; Douglas W. Morse Fine Arts & Antiques from Pasadena, California; the Panama-based Really Good; Georgia’s Atlanta Fine Antiques & Rugs; Art Link International from Lake Worth, Florida; and an international appearance from Silver Art by D & R out of France.
Rounding out fall’s confirmed dealers are Chris Mulloy Antiques and Jacob’s Estate Jewelry, both out of California; LZ Gifts from Pennsylvania; and Seattle’s Edward Mitchell Fine Art.
Krieger is confident that the return of Houston Antiques + Art + Design Show in the fall will be triumphant:
“We are hopeful that between now and September we will build a strong roster of dealers and present an impressive show,” he says.
