Calderwood Gallery, 20th Century Design and Photography recently relocated to Philadelphia’s Avenue of the Arts, in the hotter-than-hot 600 North Broad Street block.
Their grand opening celebration will be held Friday, May 11, 2012, from 6 to 9 p.m. They will officially unveil the 5,000 square feet build-out they undertook in the historic E. Hart Stable building (ca. 1880) at 631 North Broad.
The gallery, launched in 1982 by Janet and Gary Calderwood, built an international following as a world-class resource for original French Art Deco (1910-1950) furniture by the most illustrious designers. The gallery’s vast inventory includes works by Ruhlmann, Arbus, Leleu, Dominique, Jallot, Dufrene, Follot, Subes, and their contemporaries from that pivotal era in the timeline of decorative arts.
Now, in the expansive new gallery space, the Calderwoods will present a continuum of 20th Century Design coupled with a vastly expanded focus on photography. Their past photography exhibitions have been extracted from their extensive private collection, current and future exhibitions will also include contemporary photographers whose work they admire.
