The Philadelphia Shell Show
One of the largest events of its kind in the country, the Philadelphia Shell Show attracts a strong field of exhibitors and dealers from home and abroad. In recent years the artistic division has grown to rival the scientific, with a particular emphasis on sailors' valentines. The date of the 2016 show will be announced shortly; meanwhile, the results of the 2015 show are here, and pictures by Mike Gage are on line here.
