Comment by AB: Now in its 37th year, The San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show was once just the Fall Antiques Show. Over the years, it has gradually morphed into a bountiful blend of both art and antiques, spanning antiquities to Postwar and modern, exhibited by a select cull of international dealers. Like a treasure hunt, you never know what you'll find. Options include paintings, sculptures, furniture, decorative arts, rugs, arms & armour, ethnographic arts, commercial and advertising memorabilia, maps, prints, rare books, photographs, and much more. And it's all the best. Don't miss it. It only comes around four days a year.
And of course the over-the-top opening night Preview Gala benefitting Enterprise for Youth is in full bloom. Without question one of the best art parties of the year. Food, beverage and socialites galore. Wanna see a small smattering what you're missing if you stay home and molt? Here you go...
