In order to stay relevant in a fast-paced, changing world the show will offer a more diverse selection of goods while staying true to its early American niche.
The 2019 Hartford Show will feature a millennials perspective to the world of antiques and arts. Kate Avery, artist, furniture designer, painter, blogger and influencer, is on tap to share her knowledge and design savvy with a fresh twist. She will show how to incorporate that unique and special antique object into a 21st century setting and how to curate a space as a reflection of your individuality and style. Although known for her re-furbished painted furniture, Kate has a deep understanding and respect for the exceptional and unique pieces found at the Connecticut Spring Show. Her talk "Fresh Design with Antiques" will take place Saturday, March 23 at 2 p.m. and is included in admission.
The weekend will feature other educational programs and on Sunday, March 24 visitor's age 35 and younger will receive free admission. Area museums will be showcased to highlight Hartford's numerous cultural venues which make the city a desirable destination.
