SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- The San Francisco Tribal & Textile Arts Show celebrates its 28th year at the historic Fort Mason Center, Festival Pavilion February 7 – 9, 2014. Collectors, curators and art professionals have long hailed the event as best tribal art show in the market. As leading textile publication HALI states, "the show is the most important, accessible and agreeable "non-European" art event anywhere in the world." The 2014 show will feature more than 15,000 pieces from nearly 100 national and international tribal and textile arts specialists. The antiques and artifacts chosen for exhibition have been vetted to ensure not only authenticity, but also quality and prominence. The SFTTA has earned a reputation for showcasing rare finds which has made it a go-to destination for art enthusiasts.

This year’s event will feature pieces from the relatively unknown Morobe province of Papua New Guinea courtesy of Michael Hamson Oceanic Art, Turkmenistan textiles courtesy of Hagop Manoyan, Indigenous arts from Canada and New Zealand courtesy of Cassera Arts, and an exceptional selection of fiber arts and basketry from the Congo courtesy of Andres Moraga.

The most remote corners of the world are given center stage at our show,” states Show Producer, Liz Lees. “Bringing together not only a assortment of quality artifacts, but also a collection of exhibitors that are the leading experts in their fields, is very unique. It is an opportunity for art lovers from all walks of life; for serious collectors, as well as those that are looking to learn more about a new genre.”

Thomas Murray, an Asian & Tribal art expert, will guest curate a special exhibit at the SFTTA’s entrance: “Masks Then and Now: Inspiration and Interpretation.” He will showcase antique tribal masks from the Himalayas and Indonesia together with contemporary works by sculptor Mort Golub from the "Shamanic Mask Series." Both contemporary and traditional works share common sources and themes, those of Animism and Transformation. Murray has placed objects in more than thirty museums across four continents and has published more than 50 articles. He was recently appointed by President Obama to the Cultural Property Advisor Committee, one of only two art dealers selected to advocate on behalf of merits of collecting art.

The San Francisco Tribal & Textile Arts Show opens with a gala benefit for the de Young Museum’s Art of Africa, Oceania and the Americas as well as their Textiles galleries on Thursday, February 6, 2014. Attended by political dignitaries, high-profile arts patrons, collectors, the gala has been featured in the social columns of regional and national media outlets. According to one journalist, “collectors and art lovers browsed the curated selection of masks, sculptures, textiles, and jewelry, while a jazz band set the mood for a celebration of multicultural art.”
