John Case, president of Case Antiques Inc., Auctions & Appraisals, has been appointed to the board of directors of the Tennessee Executive Residence Preservation Foundation. The not-for-profit foundation is charged with the acquisition and management of the interiors, including furnishings and artwork, of the public reception and formal entertainment areas within the Tennessee executive residence (also known as the Governor’s Mansion). Mr. Case has over 20 years of experience researching and evaluating American antiques and art, with a specialization in early Southern decorative arts. He is an accredited member of the Appraisers Association of America (AAA).
“I am deeply honored to serve my state in this capacity,” said Mr. Case. “Preserving our state’s treasures has always been a personal and professional objective for me. The executive residence is sometimes the first or only personal encounter visiting dignitaries have with Tennessee’s material culture. I’m excited about playing a role in helping showcase the work of many of our state’s most talented hands.”
