SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- The 2013 San Francisco Fall Antiques Show will arrive in style Thursday, October 24 through Sunday, October 27, at Fort Mason’s Festival Pavilion with its theme this year: Jazz Moderne: Art Deco and the Avant Garde. The SFFAS is a vetted show that presents some sixty international specialists in a range of high-end art and antiques collecting areas. San Francisco resident and Bay Area native, Kitty Margolis will serve as Honorary Chair with an elite band of committee members, led by Co-Chairs Michele Goss and Adrianna Pope Sullivan putting on the Ritz for this this time-honored show. This year’s focus ties in with 80th Anniversary of the end of Prohibition, and the transforming design movement that went with that era.

“Art Deco was the epitomy of the avant garde, pushing the envelope of what was considered beautiful and embracing the machine age” says Ariane Trimuschat, Director of the show. “It was an aesthetic that was light years away from what preceded it. It embraced a new ideal, looked to the future and influenced everything from furniture and architecture to fashion, jewelry, decorative arts and even advertising.”

The SFFAS launches with a Preview Gala on Wednesday, October 23rd, as always, with 100% of proceeds going to Enterprise for High School Students, a non-profit that engages and empowers Bay Area high school students to develop skills for their future through job readiness training, employment, and career exploration. Greeting guests will be Kitty Margolis.

On Thursday, October 24, the show opens for its four day run. Guests will be welcomed by a captivating installation, designed by renowned San Francisco-based architect Andrew Skurman along with decorative painter Willem Racke. Guests will be invited to discover the jazz age and the broad influence it still has today. The loan exhibition, curated by Maria Santangelo and Holland Lynch will display art deco items that show the inspiration the movement had across many genres.

The Jazz Age beckons at The 2013 San Francisco Fall Antiques Show; for more information and to purchase tickets, call (415) 989-9019 or

Preview Gala: Wednesday, October 23, 2013, 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
