OWl-THF-post
In support of TILE HERITAGE FOUNDATION
Curated ART TILE Auction & Sale via Bidding Owl
A
SHOWCASE of 44 delightful ART TILES in the auction

Art Tiles in this auction were generously contributed from Artisans around the country to Tile Heritage which in normal times would have been shown and sold during the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works Spring Tile Festival & Artisan Tile Northwest Fall Festival, both of which were cancelled this year due to the pandemic. 
FUNDS from this up-coming event will provide support for the Foundation's ongoing tile history archiving project as well as a comprehensive online index capturing the History of Ceramic Tile in the United States from the 1870s to the present day.
OUR SINCERE THANKS TO THE CONTRIBUTING TILE ARTISTS

Paducah’s Finest Hotel
by Joseph A. Taylor

Located strategically in western Kentucky where the Tennessee River joins the Ohio, Paducah was also favored by the Illinois Central Railroad that established its repair shops there. By the turn of the 20th century, prosperity had begun to take hold with the city’s population approaching 20,000. Being the seat of McCracken County, Paducah experienced considerable growth during the 1920s, enough to inspire major local investments.

In halting an event of this magnitude in mid-stride, the owners and board members of the International Tile Exposition as well as the managers of the show, Taffy Event Strategies, have met the global challenge head-on. We'll all miss experiencing the latest tiles and stone from around the world, meeting up with industry friends, supporters and colleagues, the wide array of tile education opportunities as well as honoring amazing tile and stone installations in the Awards Programs. We look forward to Coverings 2021 in Orlando, FL.

MISSION IN PLACE! Tile Heritage Foundation Staff and Volunteers are "safe & sound" at the moment. THF offices and library are on the property of Sheila Menzies & Joe Taylor - so they always 'work from home'... We've been able to plan for some staff tasks and archiving projects to be handled remotely off-site - keeping many aspects of what we do running smoothly with everyone's health and safety as the highest priority
