"NATCHEZ at 300:  TOWARD NEW HORIZONS in DECORATIVE ARTS "

 
You are invited to the 39th Pilgrimage Garden Club Natchez Antiques Forum in beautiful Natchez, Mississippi. The Forum helps celebrate the 300th anniversary of Natchez this year.  A varied lineup of lectures based on speakers' on-site research in Natchez awaits you. Appealing topics range from the cultural treasures of native American Indians to the influence of outstanding New York and Philadelphia craftsmen on the furnishings of Natchez mansions.  A special nod goes to Natchez art and artists, including a showing of original art works by Natchez artist Sharon Richardson.
       
Visits to historic houses, two rarely opened to the public, complement the Forum's theme.  Add all of that to Natchez's renowned hospitality, and the 2016 Antiques Forum is irresistible.  Whether you are a decorative arts expert, a collector of antique objects, or a beginner in the field, the 2016 Forum is for you.  Welcome!

The Natchez Antiques Forum is sponsored by the Pilgrimage Historical Association with the assistance of the Pilgrimage Garden Club. Registration proceeds support the preservation of National Historic Landmarks Longwood and Stanton Hall as well as additional preservation projects in the larger Natchez community.
