Nicholas D. Lowry is President and Principal Auctioneer of Swann Auction Galleries in New York City, and Director of the auction house's Vintage Posters Department. Born into a family of antiquarian book dealers, he was raised and educated in New York and graduated from Cornell University. As one of the world’s foremost authorities on vintage posters, Lowry (Nicho to his friends) has spent nearly 20 years serving as poster appraiser on the PBS show Antiques Roadshow. He currently sits on the Board of Trustees of the Smithsonian Archives of American Art, and the Board of Governors of The National Arts Club, in New York City, for whom he is also Chairman of the Fine Arts Committee. Lowry is actively involved with many worthy causes and presides over as many as 20 charity auctions a year.
Eagle Hill School is thrilled that Nicho will take part in our 50th Anniversary Celebration and preside over our auction. It is sure to be a fun night!
