world. Cody originally was a fashion photographer in New York always seeking new locations and backdrops for his art. When he started using antique shows for background he started to notice the art and the artifacts found in these locations. He says he was the first person to display Highwayman paintings in a New York style art gallery in Florida. McQueen still enjoys displaying and buying and selling Highwayman art but he says the current market is better suited for more affordable art and artifacts and he concentrates on what buyers are likely to find interesting at friendly prices.
The mother/son team of Susan and Andrew Muchnikoff will be in their customary booth. Matthew's Antiques and Collectibles will be offering British Royalty memorabilia dating back to the coronation of King Charles II in 1651 and Americana, American political memorabilia and historical commemoratives that cover the full breadth of this country's history.
A “don’t miss” booth is the prominent lobby booth occupied by Americana dealers Nancy and Woody Straub. The Straubs are veteran dealers in American fine art circa 1860-1945 and American furniture ranging from the Arts & Crafts period of the early 20th century to the colonial period. They have been antiques dealers for over forty years and have family ties to the business going back beyond that. Nancy and Woody have been regular exhibitors at the West Palm Beach Antiques Festival since Kay and Bill Puchstein took over the Show in late 2008.
