“A Grand Tour” – Charleston Magazine and The Winter Antiques Show

Breaking News, Collections, Event, Research, Uncategorized

Charleston Magazine‘s “A Grand Tour” features Charleston antiques that will be on display January 21 through the 30th at The Winter Antiques Show in New York City.  Each year the Antiques Show selects a museum to showcase its collection via a “Loan Exhibition.” This year the loan exhibition is “Grandeur Preserved: Masterworks Presented by Historic Charleston Foundation.” Since the goal is to showcase historic collections representing the best of Charleston, HCF has invited Drayton Hall, the Charleston Museum, the Gibbes Museum, Middleton Place Foundation, and the John Rivers Collection to lend important objects from their collections – some never before seen in public. Please visit Charleston Magazine to learn more,

 “Drayton Hall’s participation in the New York Winter Antiques Show is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity for any historic site, and this is especially true for Drayton Hall.  For the first time ever, portions of Drayton Hall’s collections will be publicly exhibited and visitors to the show will have a unique opportunity to examine some of the many objects which illustrate John Drayton’s close connections to England and the wider Atlantic World.” – Carter Hudgins, Director of Preservation at Drayton Hall

“We’re so pleased to have been invited to contribute to the exhibit of Charleston ‘masterworks’ at the Winter Antiques Show. This gives us an opportunity to give people a glimpse of the remarkable collections we have – collections that tell fascinating stories about Drayton Hall. Our lecture too, on Jan. 22, should be quite interesting because we’ll be sharing new research findings that much of the public hasn’t yet learned about.” – George McDaniel, Executive Director of Drayton Hall
