The San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show
Oct 11, All Day
The San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show, now in its 37th year, is “The West Coast’s oldest and most prestigious international art and antiques show,” according to Town & Country, and presents more than 50 of the finest dealers from around the world. Genres represented include furniture, modern, contemporary and fine art, objets d’art, works on paper, jewelry and precious metals, ceramics, ethnographic art, and textiles. All eras are represented from antiquity through contemporary. Thousands of collectors attend over 4 days.
Modernism Inc. will be presenting The Sun, The Moon & The Stars: Celestial Imagery in Art, Antiques & Design. Depicted by nearly every culture throughout time, celestial elements hold mystery, splendor, and symbolism. The sun is regarded as a symbol of life, power, and rebirth; the phases of the moon symbolize immortality, eternity, and purity; stars may represent the knowledge of good and truth, inspiration, imagination, dreams, and divine guidance. The sky humbles us and the celestial bodies we see from earth have long been an inspiration to artists and artisans.
