Antiques & The Arts Weekly

Antiques & The Arts Weekly is a weekly arts journal published by the Newtown Bee.

AAW cover

From their website:

We are the foremost source of information and breaking news in the antiques and art world. R. Scudder Smith started Antiques and The Arts Weekly in 1963 as an insert to The Newtown Bee (the hometown newspaper of Newtown, Connecticut) and it became a distinct publication in 1974. The information we provide is of vital importance to collectors and the trade, including auctioneers, dealers, curators, museums, historical societies, galleries, and show promoters.

I began writing for Antiques & The Arts Weekly in the summer of 2016. Here you’ll find a list and links to published articles I have written for them. More to come!
