In this edition, I talk with show organizer and Kiwanian Marianne Gallagher and Cheryl Van Denburg, who will show her textile art and paintings at the show.
The show is Sunday, February 13 at Finger Lakes Gaming and Race Track in Farmington. Proceeds will go to a number of local projects, including the Inclusion in Motion playground in Canandaigua. More about the show:
The Canandaigua Classic Antique Show and Sale returns to Canandaigua this February 13 for its 22nd year.

“We’re back better than ever,” said show organizer Marianne Gallagher. “This year’s wares will include country and period furniture, clocks, lamps and lighting fixtures, jewelry, postcards, paintings and books, linens, and all kinds of antique accessories. Returning this year were many dealers who have made the show a popular mid-winter event. ”In addition to checking out all the antiques, find out more about one of your own. From 11 to 2 p.m., H. Price Prazar will provide a verbal appraisal of antiques, books and collectibles for an extra fee.

Some of the funds raised at the 2022 Canandaigua Classic Antique Show will help complete the Inclusion in Motion Playground in Canandaigua, a million dollar playground for all abilities. The annual antique show also grants funds, in partnership with the Kiwanis Club of Canandaigua, to promote arts and cultural philanthropy and to foster visual and performing arts appreciation for the residents of Ontario County. To date the antique show has donated more than $125,000 to cultural events such as the Finger Lakes Music Festival, Cobblestone Arts Center, Bristol Valley Children’s Theater and the Plein Arts Festival in Canandaigua.
