ELLSWORTH — The Ellsworth Antiques Show at Woodlawn’s preview party and dinner is scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 15.
The event will run from 4 to 7 p.m. and precedes the opening of the antiques show, which runs Aug. 16-18.
Guests can expect all the elements that have made previous opening nights so popular, including the chance to meet the country’s best dealers, many of whom appear on the “Antiques Roadshow” and food provided by the Crocker House. Eaton Peabody is sponsoring a selection of wine from Sawyers Specialties.
Guests can also view selections from “Woodlawn in Art,” a contemporary art show and competition featuring works based on a Woodlawn theme from some the top artists in Hancock County. The winning artists will be announced during the preview party and dinner.
Tickets for the preview party are $75 per person ($65 for Woodlawn members) and party and dinner tickets are $135 per person ($125 for Woodlawn members).
This year’s show proceeds will form a special education fund that will allow Maine students to participate in Woodlawn’s programs free of charge, including the cost of transportation.
Tickets are available in advance by calling 667-8671 or at the door.
