Clean Oil Paintings Gets A Moment In The RIPBS Spotlight

Last year I decided to become a sponsor of Antiques Roadshow on Rhode Island Public Broadcasting.  That was the start of an amazingly symbiotic relationship!  I’ve gone on to underwrite the Downton Abbey series, too.  Recently the RIPBS Director of Development, Debby Hall, invited me to visit their Providence RI studio to record a short testimonial.  Here it is!

Are you a Downton Abbey fan?  I am, and along with the Cardi Brothers of Cardi’s Furniture, decided to sponsor the Rhode Island PBS Preview Screening of Downton Abbey.

The event was held on December 6, 2014 in the magnificently restored Veterans Memorial Theater in Providence, with a fabulous on-stage dinner and an introduction to 1920′s costume design presented by Laurie brewer, Costume and Textiles Curator at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum.

The screening was also preceded by an extraordinary rendition of “Downtown Rhody”, featuring The Cardi brothers and Yours Truly, along with a cast of RIPBS Celebrities.

Enjoy our Rhode Island take on the Masterpiece hit!
