Houston Antiques + Art + Design Show
Formally a show that took place twice a year, Houston Antiques + Art + Design Show has recently focussed on producing one annual show in Fall only. With just a single show a year, the fair promises to be bigger and better. Indeed, more than 50 exhibitors participate to offer fine art and antiques for sale. Thus, visitors can view and purchase painting, silver, china, ceramic, furniture, jewelry and sculpture from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Additionnally, there are some modern pieces along with mid-20th century design. Over the 3-day weekend, dealers, artists, museum curators and the general public can discuss their passion and add exquisite pieces to their collection. The show has two sister fairs: Chicago Antiques + Art + Design Show and Miami Antiques + Art + Design Show.
