We invite you to this year’s Australian Antique & Art Dealers Association’s (AAADA) Fair at The Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton.
The largest number of exhibitors yet from around Australia, will this year fill the Royal Exhibition Building with the finest and rarest antiques and art available in this country. All exhibited items are for sale and will have been vetted for authenticity prior to the fair opening.
The opening night on Thursday May 8, will be in aid of UNICEF and money raised will go to assist their humanitarian work in Australia and around the world. Tickets are $50 per person and available by calling 0401 995 501.
This year the fair has attracted gold sponsors in Assetline - who are a specialist finance company who provides loans secured against valuable art and antiques, Nexus Design who are styling aspects of the fair and Courtney Colour who have come on board with print services for the stunning fair catalogue.
This year's fair is dedicated to the memory of Stuart Rattle, Melbourne's much loved interior decorator, who staged the Decorator stand at this same fair last year. On Mother's Day, which is the last day of the event, there will be a floral tribute to Stuart sponsored by Flowers Vasette of Carlton and styled by a legendary name within the world of flowers - John Graham. Donations will be sought throughout Mother's Day for the maintenance of Wombat Hill Botanic Gardens at Daylesford, which Stuart Rattle was passionate about.
A panel discussion on Saturday afternoon presented by the AAADA and featuring leading authorities from the world of design and the broader community will focus on two subjects: How to live with antiques in a contemporary Australian interior, sponsored by Nexus Design, and: How to live with and look after valuable assets such as art and antiques, sponsored by Assetline.
The fair will have in-house catering where the public can sit amongst the glamorous displays and enjoy a leisurely lunch, coffee or wine with friends or family.
We encourage everyone to buy tickets early for the Gala opening night and for the day sessions of the fair.
