Col­lec­tors find mod­ern and an­tique fine art, fur­nish­ings and ob­jects at the 2018 New­port Show

Dur­ing The New­port Show, which was re­named this year from New­port An­tiques Show, more than 1,500 guests passed through St. Ge­orge’s School Ice Rink in New­port, Rhode Island, for a week­end of fine art, an­tiques and ob­jects.the two-day show, July 28 and 29, kicked off with a Gala Pre­view Party on July 27 where more than 600 ad­di­tional guests had the first chance to browse the booths of mod­ern and an­tique items. Show man­ager Diana Bit­tel says, “the show was beau­ti­ful with even more painting deal­ers than last year.the pre­view party was sold out.”

Fea­tured dur­ing the show were more than 42 deal­ers who pre­sented items such as paint­ings, sculp­ture, jew­elry, vin­tage cloth­ing and ac­ces­sories. there were both mod­ern and an­tique op­tions, al­low­ing col­lec­tors to find pieces that suited their sen­si­bil­i­ties. among the deal­ers who helped col­lec­tors find items were The Coo­ley Gallery, Guar­isco Gallery, David Brooker and Ca­role Pinto, among oth­ers. This year, The New­port Show grossed more than $400,000, which re­sults in sig­nif­i­cant do­na­tions to the show’s ben­e­fi­cia­ries—the New­port His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety and the Boys & Girls Clubs of New­port County. Since the show was founded in 2007, a cu­mu­la­tive to­tal of $2.4 mil­lion has been raised to sup­port the city’s “dis­tin­guished past and his­toric fu­ture.”
