Class of 2012, Specialist, 20th Century Design, Freeman’s Auction House
During his time in the Winterthur Program, Tim Andreadis specialized in 20th century design. For his thesis, he explored Monel metalwork from 1913-1929 in, “Parke Edwards and Bryn Athyn Cathedral (1913-1929): a case study of Monel metalwork in machine-age America.” After taking on an internship at Rago Arts & Auction Center as part of the Winterthur Program, Andreadis secured the position of 20th Century Design Specialist upon his completion of the Program. Andreadis worked with Rago Arts & Auction Center for two years, and then moved to his current position as 20th Century Design Specialist at Freeman’s Auction House. At Freeman’s, Andreadis has brought key works of 20th century design to market, including important examples by Finn Juhl, Paul Evans, and George Nakashima. He also oversees Freeman’s annual Pennsylvania Sale, which celebrates artists from the region including Samuel Yellin, Harry Bertoia, Wharton Esherick, George Nakashima, Paul Evans, and Phillip Lloyd Powell. Outside of Freeman’s, Andreadis has written and lectured on 20th century design and is an active member of the Society of Winterthur Fellows, the Decorative Arts Trust, and the Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass.
