Highlights from the 2016 Show….
The 2016 Ellsworth Antiques Show was a big hit with dealers, guests and lovers of antiques. It certainly lived up to its reputation as being one of the finest summer antiques show in the country.
The Show, in its 11th year at Woodlawn, featured twenty-eight dealers of national, international, and regional renown. Many of the Show’s annual attendees commented how diverse and eye-catching the booths were at this year. They appreciated the great mix of long term dealers, returning dealers from past years, and a number of new dealers coming to experience the Show for the first time. Adding to the fun this year was a Designer Showcase by decorator George Terbovich, Kansas City, Missouri and a Contemporary Art Booth featuring works by local artists and summer residents.
The 2016 Opening Night Party and Dinner offered all that guests have come to expect, such as the great music of Grammy award winner Paul Sullivan and a scrumptious menu prepared by Chipper’s Restaurant and Catering of Hancock. An exciting addition this year was the opportunity to be the first to taste Woodlawn’s premier microbrew, the John Black Stout brewed locally by Airline Brewing Company in Ellsworth.
Also new in 2016 were two live music events that were well received. On Thursday afternoon/evening, Show visitors were treated to the Night & Day Jazz Trio with a wine tasting sponsored by Machias Savings Bank. On Friday afternoon/evening, musicians from the Acadia School of Traditional Music & Art with a beer tasting with Airline Brewing Company drew people to the Show. Seal Cove Auto Museum also provided complimentary rides in its 1915 Detroit Electric on Friday afternoon.
