The 2013 Washington Winter Show, renowned for its antique and fine art offerings, this year celebrates the country and sporting life with exhibits on loan from the National Sporting Library in Middleburg, Virginia. The NSL’s Claudia Pfeiffer is the principal curator.
Billed as “Thrill of the Chase”—a double entendre referring to the foxhunt and the antique hunt—the show previews on January 10, 2013 and runs from January 11–13. The exhibit is open free of charge to the public to further the understanding and appreciation of antiques. General admission tickets which include the show catalogue are $20.00. Claudia Pfeiffer contributed an essay to the catalog.
At 1:00 pm on Friday, Honorary Chair Penny Chenery, owner of Triple Crown-winner Secretariat, will be represented by her co-author Leanne Meadows Laddin to sign copies of Secretariat’s Meadow: The Land, the Family, the Legend and Riva Ridge: Penny’s First Champion.
The show will be held at the Katzen Arts Center, American University, 4400 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20016. Click here for details of this exceptional exhibit.
