From October 6 to 9, the Birmingham Botanical Gardens will host the 11th annual Antiques at The Gardens show. Interior and landscape designers will create themed areas decorated with goods from Birmingham and other areas of the country, and dealers will be on hand to present antiques, furniture, porcelain, fine art, silver, garden accessories and jewelry.
“As the show enters its second decade, we are thrilled to bring such great talent to Antiques at The Gardens,” said the event chairs, Ragan Cain and Cathy Luckie. “It has been an honor for us to co-chair this event. We hope that guests will come and support the Antiques weekend, as well as the Birmingham Botanical Gardens—a beautiful backdrop for our community and our state.”
Programs include a returning lecture series with renowned interior decorator and author Jeffrey Bilhuber and a design panel and discussion, among other planned events.
The themed areas will be curated by this year’s Tastemakers: Jeffrey Dungan Architects, Grant Trick, Beth Webb Interiors, Cantley & Company, Margaret Kirkland Interiors, Pamela Evans Interior Design, Patina and TMD Landscape Designs.
This year’s dealers include Antique Cupboard, Barometer Fair, Caroline Faison Antiques, DR Grissom Estate and Fine Jewelry, Edwin C. Skinner Antiques, Embellish Antiques, Gallery 1930, George Getlik Fine Art, Hard to Find Goods, J&M Antiques, Lotz’s Antiques, Paige Albright Orientals, Pennoyer Newman, Somerset Antiques, Southern Living, Thomas M.
