Winter Show Sails to 'Ports of Call'
The Washington Winter Show themed “Ports of Call” was held at the Katzen Arts Center at American University Jan. 8 to 11 to raise funds for three local charities serving the needs of at-risk children and families by sponsoring an annual show devoted to antiques and fine arts. The Sponsors, Benefactors and Designers Champagne Reception provided an advance look at the exhibits of 45 premier dealers from the United States and Europe. The Jan. 9 lecture and luncheon featured attorney and museum professional Amy Herman, who has trained medical and law enforcement officials to hone their observation, perception and communication skills by analyzing works of art. Historian and sailor Gary Jobson spoke Jan. 10 on the Oracle Team’s successful defense of the America’s Cup trophy. The 2015 Loan Exhibit, “Vessels of Victory,” displayed silver trophies awarded for victories in naval battles and in competitive sailing.
