In honor of its tenth year, the Lauritzen Gardens Antique & Garden Show announced it has commissioned artist Harrison Howard to design the visual elements associated with the event. Howard’s captivating watercolors add flair and whimsy to elements found in everyday life including architectural subjects, chinoiseries, and scenics, often with bird, animal or floral motifs.

“It is a true honor to have Harrison’s imagination and imagery affiliated with the Lauritzen Gardens Antique & Garden Show,” stated 2013 chairman Jan Vrana. “We are celebrating a decade of treasures at the gardens. The vibrancy of Harrison Howard’s art is perfect to set the tone and tenor for this one-of-a-kind antique show in the Midwest.”

An unparalleled lineup of design experts will serve as keynote lecturers at the event to be held September 26-29 at Lauritzen Gardens including Carolyne Roehm, Eddie Ross, Kathryn Ireland and Danielle Rollins. The weekend-long event is set within Lauritzen Gardens, one of the Midwest’s premier botanical centers. Approximately 30 national and international antique dealers with all genres of antiques and collectibles of exceptional quality and extraordinary style are exhibiting.
