It will still be held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in the Progress Center Building on Saturday September 24th and Sunday September 25th, 2016. You'll find furniture, metalwork, pottery, textiles, art and lighting; everything from Stickley, Limbert, Roycroft, Rookwood and the esteemed Minneapolis Handicraft Guild. High quality reproductions will be for sale as well. Many of the nation's leading dealers will be on hand to answer questions and advise on how to decorate your home.
The show will also offer the highest quality 20th Century Design including pieces by Eames, Herman Miller, Knoll and much more.

David Rago to Deliver Lecture, Exhibit and Offer Appraisals
David Rago, owner of Rago Arts and Auction Center, will be participating in this years' show, as a lecturer, as an exhibitor, and as an appraiser! As many of you know Rago Arts and Auction Center is a leading U.S auction house, featuring 20th century design, with over $30 million in annual sales. David has published the magazines "Style 1900" and "Modernism", as well as authoring several books on 20th century design and ceramics. He is an expert appraiser on the PBS series " Antiques Roadshow " and has appeared on the show since its inception in America 21 years ago.
David will be giving an hour presentation, "Arts and Crafts within the context of Modernism", how it was influenced (Shaker) and how it continued to influence (Nakashima), using the spiritual underpinnings of the three. With David's experience in 20th c. design, fine art, decorative arts, furnishings, jewelry, we feel he is uniquely qualified to provide a comprehensive overview of the entire period from mission to modern.
In addition to his lecture and participation in the show, David will provide an "Antiques Roadshow" experience focused on 20th Century Design by doing individual appraisals in his booth throughout the entirety of the show. A nominal fee of $10 for each item or 3 for $25 will be collected and donated to a local charity.
