The Cathedral Antiques Show will celebrate its 50th Anniversary January 21-23, 2021. It is hard to believe it all began in 1969 when Episcopal Church Women at The Cathedral of St. Philip sponsored a talk on antiques to benefit community outreach. The Show has evolved to feature dealers from across the country and experts in antiques, design, floral arts and decor. Most importantly, over $5.4 million has been raised to support Atlanta nonprofits through proceeds from the Show.
2021 Show Chair Anne Matthews along with Co-Chair Caroline Wallace are pleased to announce Boog and Sam Candler will serve as Honorary Show Chairs and Norman Askins as the Architectural and Design Chair.
We are proud to support our beneficiary, the 180 Degree Kitchen at City of Refuge - a life-changing ministry on Atlanta’s Westside. Since 1997 City of Refuge has helped more than 20,000 individuals return to self-sufficiency by focusing on four key impact areas: health and wellness, housing, job training and youth development.
Hardships caused by COVID-19 have intensified the need for these vital services. Proceeds of the 2021 Show will fund a comprehensive renovation, equipping the 180 Degree Kitchen to meet present and future demand for meals and vocational training in a highly efficient setting.
Since our beneficiary selection in early spring, planning has included a Show “reimagined” if circumstances did not allow for an in-person event. Given the recent increase of COVID-19 and the uncertainty of its progression in the coming months, the Cathedral Antiques Show committee made the decision to pivot to a full virtual format. It’s official!
We have partnered with David and John Duke at Living Stories.TV, whose creative genius through film will bring our exciting events to you in a format designed exclusively for the Cathedral Antiques Show. All of our favorite offerings will be celebrated, just in a different way. Please refer to our Schedule of Events for the most current information found on our website: Cathedralantiques.org.
Our top priority remains the safety and well-being of our Show supporters. We are delighted that this format will allow us to provide our guests with premier access to the luxurious world of antiques and design. For 50 years, the annual Cathedral Antiques Show has attracted thousands of guests and provided vital support to local charitable organizations. We are grateful to be able to continue this tradition.
While we are unable to gather in person for the 2021 Cathedral Antiques Show, together we celebrate this milestone event and support the mission of City of Refuge.
With continued gratitude,
2021 Show Chair

City of Refuge (COR) was founded by Bruce Deel in 1997 with a mission to transform the lives of individuals and communities in Atlanta and beyond. The faith-based nonprofit is housed in a 210,000-square-foot warehouse on the Westside in the 30314 zip code: a neighborhood where 60% of murders in Atlanta happen and nearly 40% of the residents live below the federal poverty line.
COR is a leader in the business of social transformation and continuously works to empower and equip individuals with the tools to succeed. Since its founding, COR has helped more than 20,000 people return to self-sufficiency by focusing on four key impact areas: health and wellness, housing, vocational training and youth development. In 2019 alone, COR placed 485 individuals in jobs, 455 individuals in permanent housing and served 350,000 meals.
Through its holistic approach, COR is able to meet immediate and long-term needs for individuals – all under “one roof” – from childcare to education to safe housing for victims of sex trafficking and more. To achieve its goals, COR has formed partnerships with several organizations such as NAPA, the Westside Future Fund, Mercy Care and Bright Futures Atlanta.
The grant received from the 2021 Cathedral Antiques Show will go toward renovating the 180 Degree Kitchen, a fully operational culinary environment where meals are prepped and served three times a day, 365 days a year. Over the past 12 years, more than two million meals have been served from the 180 Degree Kitchen. It also acts as a training center for students in the Culinary Arts vocational training program, one of COR’s most successful and longest-running programs.
