Over the past decade, the Newport Antiques Show has emerged as a mainstay of the summer antiques show schedule. Held at the St. George’s School in Middletown, Rhode Island—a seaside town just north of Newport—the show attracts a top-notch crowd of collectors, curators, and enthusiasts thanks to its abundance of superlative material and sophisticated atmosphere. Another aspect that sets the Newport Antiques Show apart is its indefatigable dedication to education.
