Drawing dealers from 14 states, the Fall Fox Valley Antiques Show will benefit the DuPage County Historical Museum in Wheaton. "Folk Art: Simple Pleasures" features 55 dealers offering authenticated 18th, 19th and early 20th century antiques, with a healthy dose of folk art.
Antiques are displayed in room settings, notes the presenter, the Chicago Suburban Antiques Dealers Association. A catered lunch will be available, and author Tina Woltman will be on hand.
The show complements the museum's "Early Illinois Folk Art, 1825-1925" exhibit, extended to Oct. 27. The museum will receive a portion of antiques show ticket sales. For more on the museum and the exhibit, visit www.dupagemuseum.org.
