Dolphin Promotions shows are among the leading venues for antiques and 20th century decorative and fine arts in North America.
Established over 35 years ago by Bob Smith, Dolphin Promotions is currently owned and operated by Rosemary Krieger. With over 30 years of industry experience, Rosemary is assisted by her media director, Gordon Merkle and her executive assistant, Charlie Walter, both with 22 years of experience. The combined expertise of this team is instrumental in the success of the company and the shows they produce.
Dolphin currently produces 12 shows annually across the country. All of these events are distinguished by the solid reputation of the participating dealers, and the diversity of the high quality merchandise. Major antiques shows in Fort Lauderdale, Houston, and Los Angeles rank among the finest quality events in their region and attract many local, national and international exhibitors and collectors. A new antiques show in Sarasota will be introduced in January 2015. All of these shows offer a wide range of antiques and are very well attended.
Beginning in 2000, Dolphin introduced its first 20th century show, Palm Springs Modernism. Since then, Dolphin has expanded its modernism schedule to include Los Angeles Modernism and is introducing a fall version of the Palm Springs Modernism Show in October 2014. A solid reputation and creative and innovative shows continue to make Dolphin Promotions antiques and modernism shows successful both with exhibitors, collectors and the design community worldwide.
The Houston Antiques + Art + Design Show will feature 125 premier exhibitors from across the U.S., Canada and Europe in beautiful room-settings offering fine antique furniture, decorative and fine arts representing all design movements from ancient to 20th-century modern.
After 50 amazing and supportive years the HADA Antiques show will be re-branded as Houston Antiques + Art + Design Show. We would like to pay tribute to all the dealers and collectors who have supported the Houston show for so many years.
1stdibs has partnered with Dolphin Promotions sponsoring their many shows for over 10 years. Nobody works harder than Rosemary Krieger to ensure that both the dealers and those who attend her shows have a fantastic experience.
