The San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show is the ultimate high-end treasure hunt, a wonderland of culture and curiosity from around the world.
The Show is one of the most beautiful in the country.
The highlight of fall season
The San Francisco Fall Show and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (FAMSF) are thrilled to announce an exciting affiliation. FAMSF will be the new beneficiary of the legendary Opening Night Gala, which will be held in person in 2022 at Fort Mason. This will also mark the 40th anniversary of the San Francisco Fall Show, the longest running art, antiques and design fair on the West Coast, renowned and respected across the globe and an integral part of the San Francisco Bay Area’s art and design communities.
FAMSF oversees two unique museums—the de Young in Golden Gate Park, showcasing priceless collections of American art from the 17th through the 20th centuries, textile arts, and art of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas, and the Legion of Honor in Lincoln Park, whose collections include European decorative arts and paintings, ancient art, and one of the largest collections of prints and drawings in the country. The FAMSF mission is to connect visitors with local and global art in order to promote their knowledge of and curiosity about the past, deepen their engagement with the art and ideas of today, and stimulate their creative agency in their own futures.
San Francisco Fall Show Chair Suzanne Tucker, the driving force behind this partnership, declares: “I am delighted the show gala will be supporting our beloved museums and honored to be working with the extraordinary FAMSF team. This new relationship is written in the stars – a natural synergy between the pre-eminent antiques and art fair on the West Coast and the FAMSF world class museums. This collaboration will elevate and enhance the outreach of both organizations, resulting in an unparalleled celebration of art, antiques and design.”
“We are pleased to partner with the San Francisco Fall Show and thank them for their commitment to the arts and our mission” states Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. “With their support, we invite the Bay Area community to engage with the art and ideas of our time through a multitude of inspiring exhibitions, public programming, and education initiatives presented at the de Young and Legion of Honor in 2022.”
The 2022 San Francisco Fall Show will take place at Fort Mason October 13-16, 2022 – the Opening Night Gala will be on October 12, 2022.
A favorite tradition of the Show is the transformation of the Grand Entry Hall to showcase the annual theme. The Show invites four top designers to create vignettes inspired by the theme. Each designer is assigned an element of the theme and creates a vision that brings it to life, incorporating pieces from the show floor and elsewhere. The designers work with show sponsor de Gournay to feature a stunning wallpaper to line their walls.The 2022 Vignette Designers
