The Cathedral Antiques Show presents its 50th Anniversary Show in a new and exciting all-virtual format. Enjoy Atlanta’s favorite festival of the decorative arts in a safe, accessible way in the comfort of your own home.
All proceeds benefit City of Refuge, located in one of Atlanta’s most impoverished and dangerous neighborhoods. City of Refuge helps individuals and families transition out of crisis. Services include meals, childcare, education, safe housing and vocational training for victims of sex trafficking, homelessness, and more, all under “one roof.”
Tour of Homes invites you to take a virtual stroll through three of Atlanta’s most stunning private residences on a personal guided tour by the homes’ architects and designers. These homes showcase the finest in architecture, design, art, and gracious living.
All-Star Design Panel presents Alex Hitz, “the very best host in the world,” live streaming an intimate gathering of friends for “The Silver Lining – An Evening of Grace: Celebrating Hospitality and Comfort in the Era of Physical Distance.” Alex will be joined by fellow designers, tastemakers, and lifestyle experts Lisa Fine, Richard Keith Langham, Frances Schultz, and moderator Margot Shaw for a lively, enticing, and entertaining discussion.
Flower Friday brings world-class floral designers for master classes and live Q&A. Direct from the UK will be Shane Connolly, whose clientele and accomplishments are among the most exclusive in the world. He was Artistic Director for the 2011 wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, floral designer of the 2005 wedding of the Duchess of Cornwall to the Prince of Wales, and counts London’s Victoria & Albert Museum and the Royal Academy of Arts as two of his most valued clients. From British Columbia, Hitomi Gilliam‘s biggest passion is ‘Sharing Everything She Knows about Flowers’ through presenting and teaching. She is the recipient of many international awards and the author of 8 books. Christin Geall is a Canadian floral designer, writer, photographer and gardener who trained in horticulture at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Her writing and floral work focuses on the intersections of nature, culture and horticulture.
