Redd Talk to Benefit Atlanta Refugees

Tickets are now on sale for Miles Redd's keynote presentation and book signing at the upcoming 2013 Cathedral Antiques Show. This long-running happening is an Atlanta institution and I'm sure Redd's presence on Thursday, January 31 at 11 a.m. will add another level of excitement to the latest winter week of events, which includes multiple house tours, by the way.

[I'm anxious to see if Howard I. Price Fine Art, one of the participating dealers, brings to the show a selection of baskets made by Wounaan and Emberá women in Panama. Decorative arts are one of the show's strengths]

Over four decades, the annual event has raised millions of dollars for Atlanta-area non-profits tackling a variety of issues. (Although organized by the Episcopal Church Women of the Cathedral of St. Philip, the church receives no funding from the antiques show; 100% of the net proceeds go to the chosen beneficiary.) This year's designated charity is Refugee Family Services, serving local women and children.

In terms of tickets, one option is the $40 Miles Redd Special. This package, for individual admission, combines Run-of-the-Show, Inspiration House, and of course Redd's talk.
