The Expo returns April 29 - 30, 2017 again tothe Dulles Expo Center.
Under an agreement between the Art Deco Society and D’Amore, additional space has been made available to significantly expand the number of modernism dealers in the 2017 show. That space will be used, in part, to reintroduce two concepts from prior Expos:
· The Garment District, a grouping of fashion dealers offering clothing, jewelry, and accessories from the 20th century. In a new twist, first suggested by D’Amore’s Marthia Sides, Art Deco Society models will work with participating dealers to select garments and accessories to display during a series of mini fashion shows held right on the sales floor.
· The Collectors Club, a special section where individual members of the Art Deco Society and a variety of clubs with similar collecting interests can sell their wares. Club members can rent a 6-foot table complete with floor length drape and chair for $125. Among those eligible for this special section are members of the International Perfume Bottle Association, American Art Pottery Association, Mid-Atlantic Antique Radio Club, National Capitol Radio and Television Museum, Pen Collectors of America, Czech Collectors Association, National Depression Glass Association, and the Capitol Beltway Postcard Club.
As the only Modernism show in the mid-Atlantic region, the Exposition of 20th Century Decorative Arts draws attendees from throughout the region. Among regulars at the show are collectors from such distant locales as Pittsburgh, Richmond, and Lynchburg.
Public transportation to the Exposition of 20th Century Decorative Arts from downtown Washington: Take Metro's Orange line to Vienna and then take the Fairfax Connector bus (Route 650) to the Chantilly Shopping Center/Dulles Expo Center on Willard Road. The Modernism Show is in the North Hall at the far end of the Expo Center.
The bus runs about every 50 minutes Saturday and Sunday starting at 7:25 AM. Schedule : http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/connector/pdf/schedule/650.pdf
