debut at the 21st Antiques and Garden Show in Nashville
includes a Veranda Magazine Collector's Tour
NASHVILLE - Haynes Galleries’ presence at the 21st Anniversary of the Nashville Antiques and Garden Show added world class fine art to the reason the show draws attendees from all over the country. During the three day event from the Preview Party, attended by the Nashville area’s finest, to the closing day, the convention halls were filled with a record setting attendees. Just folks looking for good ideas and a bargain or two, collector’s from all over and Nashville’s cool country celebs.
Haynes Galleries made it’s show debut and turned some heads including the show lecturers. Charlotte Moss, nationally recognized interior designer and author of seven books, toured the booth with her assistants especially admiring the Yousuf Karsh photo of Winston Churchill. Her husband is a Churchill collector.
“Faithful” by Stephen Scott Young was the People’s Choice of the gallery exhibition, but Sheryl Crow was taken by Andrew Wyeth’s “Bishop Coburn” and Stephen Scott Young’s “Georgia, a beautifully rendered herd of cows. Overall the Show was a tremendous success with hundreds of people visiting the gallery’s booth and signing the Guest Book.
Veranda Magazine sponsored a Young Collector’s Tour Friday evening and stopped by the Haynes Galleries’ Booth and gallery owner Gary R Haynes talked about his 30 plus years of art collecting and how his passion for art led to the founding of Haynes Galleries. The group must have enjoyed their visit, because they stayed for a long time. It was a great event, and it was for the benefit of Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art and the Exchange Club Charities, a nonprofit organization with a focus on children.
Haynes Galleries is located in Franklin, Tenn., and in Thomaston, Maine. The Franklin gallery is a private gallery and is by appointment only. The Thomaston gallery is open to the public June through October.
