SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- The 29th San Francisco Fall Antiques Show Benefiting Enterprise for High School Students will be held October 28–31, 2010, at the Festival Pavilion of Fort Mason Center. Over 60 carefully-vetted new and returning dealers will present a superb array of thousands of best-in-class decorative and fine art objects. Evoking this year’s theme, Chinoiserie: Rococo to Eco, guests will be greeted by a dramatic, two-story, gilded pagoda entrance created by acclaimed architect Andrew Skurman.

The San Francisco Fall Antiques Show is the oldest and most prestigious international antiques fair on the West Coast. Each year, the Show features an extraordinary range of fine and decorative arts, representing all styles and periods including American, English, Continental, and Asian furniture, silver, ceramics, glass, jewelry, rugs, textiles, paintings, prints, and photographs. Returning exhibitors include Kevin Conru from Brussels, Kentshire from New York, and Steinitz from Paris; among the new exhibitors are Michael Goedhuis from London, Hostler Burrows from New York, and Hackett|Mill from San Francisco.

“Over the last three decades, The San Francisco Fall Antiques Show has emerged as one of the most prestigious art and antiques fairs in the United States,” said Lisa Podos, Executive Director of the Show. “With our spectacular exhibitors, sponsors, chairs, and lecturers, as well as our exciting Chinoiserie theme, this year’s Show will no doubt continue that tradition.”

On Wednesday, October 27, the fair kicks off with a glittering opening night Preview Party, with all proceeds going to Enterprise for High School Students. This year’s gala benefit will be hosted by internationally renowned fashion designer Derek Lam.

“I am delighted to be Honorary Chair of this event which joins my support of the arts and my love for design while benefitting such a wonderful organization,” said Derek Lam. “As a native San Franciscan, I am inspired by Enterprise for High School Students’ mission of empowering teens to invest in their future and pursue their goals from a young age.”

Honorary Preview Party Chair Derek Lam and Show Chair Michele Goss are joined by committee chairs including Rosemary Baker, Peter Getty, Jenna and Bryan Hunt, Letitia and Michael Kim, Laura King Pfaff, Alison Gelb Pincus, Cathy and Mike Podell, Mary and Bill Poland, John Traina, and Suzanne Tucker. McCalls Catering and Events will, again, provide the sumptuous fare, and Korbel California Champagne, Blackbird Vineyards wine, and Blue Angel Vodka will be poured.

EXHIBITION
Chinoiserie: Rococo to Eco
Maria Santangelo of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and historian Holland Lynch co- curate the special exhibition, which showcases furnishings, porcelain, lacquer, and fine arts presenting imaginative Western interpretations of Chinese artistic influences. The pieces in this display are on loan from the collections of Ann Getty, The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and others. Of particular note is a rare 1750s “Badminton Table” from the famous Chinese Bedroom at Badminton House in England, now in a private home in San Francisco.
