On Thursday evening, May 19th, The Woman’s Board of Winnetka Community House partnered with Winnetka-based Zia Gallery for the very first time to kick off the 2016 Antiques + Modernism Winnetka Show! Guests, including Woman’s Board committee members, local Winnetka patrons and sustainers, as well as members of the Board of Governors, enjoyed cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and desserts while viewing Zia Gallery’s expansive collection of art.
In addition to announcing the official launch of the show, we were very excited to reveal this year’s guest speakers, who are among the most influential women in today’s world of interior design: Alexa Hampton, Michael Del Piero, and India Hicks.
Zia Gallery was a beautiful and inspiring venue for everyone to gather and build excitement for this year’s show. The Kick-Off Party featured welcoming remarks by this year’s chair, Kate Kilgora, who announced the many special events and activities planned for this the 2016 A + M show. The evening also included a performance by young cast members from Children’s Theatre of Winnetka’s sold out play, The Sound of Music.
We would like to thank everyone who attended the event. We had a great time building up the excitement for this year’s show!
