San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show
The always well-regarded and highly-attended San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show will take place from Thursday, October 27 through Sunday, October 30. This year's show, which is being chaired by designer Suzanne Tucker, is sure to interest both antiques collectors and animal lovers alike. The theme of the 2016 show is "Animalia- Animals in Arts and Antiques". With sixty dealer booths to peruse, attendees will find all kinds of antique and contemporary pieces, many of which incorporate animal motifs and depictions. Additionally, the show will feature four designer vignettes, located at the show entrance, that incorporate curated antiques and De Gournay wallcoverings. These designers include Ann Getty, Catherine Kwong, Antonio Martins, and Jonathan Rachman. And don't forget that 100% of net proceeds benefit Enterprise for High School Students, a San Francisco nonprofit organization.
To give you a taste of what to expect at this year's show, I'm including photos of a selection of pieces that will be featured at the show. For more information on the 2016 show and to purchase tickets, please visit the show's website.
