The 37th San Francisco Fall Art and Antiques Show at Fort Mason opened with a preview gala and benefit for Enterprise for Youth on October 10th. The show theme, celestial imagery in art, antiques, and design, highlighted the sun, the moon and the stars as popular motifs for centuries. Guests arrived in celestial style at the opening preview.
Throughout the weekend, fifty dealers from around the world offered a range of fine and decorative arts, lectures, cocktail hours and talks, all open to the public. The entry hall featured vignettes created by four prominent interior designers, Ken Fulk, Charlotte Moss, Madeline Stuart, and The Wiseman Group. Each incorporated pieces borrowed from show exhibitors with wall coverings developed in collaboration with de Gournay.
Show Chair, Suzanne Tucker put it this way: “For anyone interested in art and design, furniture and the decorative arts – buying, collecting, or simply learning about art and antiques – this show is not to be missed. It is a Bay Area ‘Must Do!’ of the fall social season with four wonderful, vibrant days filled with terrific dealers, fascinating lectures, and gobs of eye candy. “
