Palladio Antiques & Art Hosts Fall Art Show

Press Announcement from Palladio

The Uptown Grocer to celebrate grand opening in Café Palladio

Memphis, Tenn., Oct. 8, 2010 – Palladio Antiques & Art, Memphis’ original upscale designer antique showroom located in Cooper-Young, will host a fall art show on Thursday, Oct. 14 through Saturday, Oct. 16 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the showroom located at 2169 Central Ave. In conjunction with the weekend event, The Uptown Grocer will celebrate a grand opening in Café Palladio, located inside Palladio Antiques & Art, on Friday, Oct. 15.

New works from well-known Memphis-area artists Ken Lecco, Emily Ozier and Sarah Robertson will be on display in The Commons area of Palladio Antiques & Art. Also, food samples will be offered in Café Palladio during the art show with special samplings and giveaways from Jennifer McCullough, owner of The Uptown Grocer, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Friday to mark the grand opening.

“We are excited to kick off the fall season with this art show and grand opening event,” said Mindy Roberts, owner of The Palladio Group. “Ken, Emily, Sarah and Jennifer have all garnered popularity among Memphians in their own unique way, and we are pleased to feature each of them during the weekend’s festivities.”

Lecco’s work incorporates metal as the canvas and often uses an oxidation process as he creates; Ozier is a primarily self-taught artist whose work is characterized by the building up of the surface of the canvas through the layering of colors; and Robertson primarily focuses on various religious themes and landscapes, drawing from her life experiences and allowing her paintings to evolve as she creates.

The Uptown Grocer is Café Palladio’s newest vendor, offering fine frozen homemade cuisines, such as white chicken chili, chicken tetrazzini and twice-baked mashed potatoes, sold out of a freezer in Café Palladio and perfect to take home for quick dinners and social gatherings.

The Palladio Group began in 1996 when Memphians Mindy and Frank Roberts decided to invest their love of antiques, historic homes and vintage architecture into the revitalization of Midtown’s historic Cooper-Young District. Their venture, which started with Palladio Antiques, quickly grew to encompass eight individual businesses: Palladio Antiques & Art, Market Central, Memphis WaterWorks, Crafted Classics, The Art Factory, Gallery Fifty Six, Café Palladio and TPG Event Hosting. Located within a block of each other, The Palladio Group’s collection of shops and art galleries are great destinations for interior designers, antiques dealers and homeowners looking for unique furniture, art and accents.
