The Philadelphia Antiques Show took a big step forward when management confirmed Saturday that Marcy Burns, a well-liked and respected New York specialist in American Indian art, had been invited to rejoin the show, planned for April 11‱5.
Burns, whose dismissal prompted letters to this publication supporting her return, was notified by show managers Josh and Sandy Wainwright of Keeling-Wainwright Associates that space had been found for her in the show.
Burns was one of five exhibitors cut from the roster after organizers announced last April that the Philadelphia Antiques Show was moving to the Navy Yard, a smaller venue, in 2008. London dealer Martyn Gregory and Woodbury, Conn., dealers Charles and Rebekah Clark have also been invited back.
Keeling Wainwright Associates, which manages the show benefiting the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania on behalf of a volunteer committee, confirmed the appointments of two new exhibitors to replace four exhibitors who resigned in protest over the floor plan and booth rents.
The new exhibitors include Ohio dealers David L. Good and Samuel Forsythe, known for American stoneware, redware and early glass, as well as for early and primitive American furniture. New Oxford, Penn., dealer Kelly Kinzle, an expert in American formal and painted furniture and tall case clocks, will also join the show.
An announcement is pending on who will fill the Philadelphia Antiques Show’s one remaining vacancy.
