Antiques and Garden Show of Nashville set for Feb. 10-12

The Antiques and Garden Show of Nashville has unveiled the theme and line-up for its 22nd annual show – “Collective Color” – celebrating the return of color to the design world.

The event is the largest of its kind in the country and will bring together internationally-renowned designers, authors, lecturers and exhibitors at the Nashville Convention Center Feb. 10-12.

“People today are thirsting for a little color and all the energy and optimism that accompanies it,” said Sarah Bartholomew, Co-Chair of the 2012 Antiques and Garden Show of Nashville, explaining the show’s theme. “You see it everywhere. Orange and deep purples are having a heyday. Design experts around the country agree: bold colors are a hot trend.”

Reflecting the colorful theme, the lecturers slated for this year’s show include:

  • Miles Redd, the Atlanta native who is internationally renowned for his glamorous designs and daring use of color. Redd is based in New York City and was named creative director of Oscar de la Renta Home in 2003.
  • Nancy Power, a landscape designer from Santa Monica, Calif., whose “eclectic boldness” has earned her the title as the “Frank Gehry of landscape design.” Power is the author of the book, The Power of Gardens.

“This year’s show brings together a stellar group of speakers and guests who represent some of the most highly respected designers in their fields,” said Debbie Best, Co-Chair of the 2012 Antiques and Garden Show of Nashville. “Their authoritative voices will no doubt inspire Show attendees to revisit their domains with a fresh eye.”

The Antiques and Garden Show of Nashville provides funding for the operations and continued preservation of the Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art. The Show also supports the Exchange Club Charities, Inc. – a non-profit organization dedicated to providing services to children in need.

As an LGBTQ+ patient, you should be able to expect the same high-quality care provided to all patients. Unfortunately, this doesn’t necessarily always prove to be the case. There remains a notoriously significant disparity in healthcare outcomes for LGBTQ+ patients, often related to issues with discrimination among providers.

Even when you find a good physician, this doesn’t mean that everyone interacting with your healthcare information will be as respectful or responsible. It is, therefore, important to be vigilant about how your data is handled. You have a right to privacy just as you have an expectation of fair treatment.
