The 2024 San Francisco Fall Show will take place from Thursday, October 17 through Sunday, October 20 at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture’s Festival Pavilion. A portion of the legendary Opening Night Gala on October 16 will benefit the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco (FAMSF).

The Show’s Honorary Co-Chairs are Aerin Lauder, Founder and Creative Director of AERIN and Wes Gordon, Creative Director of Carolina Herrera.

This year’s show invites you to celebrate the timeless appeal and elegant contrast of Black & White in the worlds of decorative arts, fashion, photography, fine art, and beyond. From Piranesi’s prints to De Kooning’s brush strokes, from Escher’s mazes to Matisse’s charcoals, from lacquer and japanning to ebony and mother of pearl, Black & White is the monochromatic thread that ties it all together. Inspired by the timeless tuxedo, the cinematic glamour of Hollywood, and of course Truman Capote’s legendary Black & White ball, the show will explore the artistic and emotional dimensions of this enduring color duo – at once chic and bold, dramatic but simple, polar opposites yet perfect partners.

This 42nd edition of the Show will feature over forty dealers from around the world, offering for sale an extraordinary range of fine and decorative arts representing all styles and periods including American, English, Continental and Asian furniture and decorative objects, paintings, prints, photographs, books, gold, silver and precious metals, jewelry, rugs, textiles and ceramics. Dealers are invited to bring pieces from antiquity to present day. The Show also features a popular series of book signings and lectures. Confirmed speakers include Timothy Corrigan, Charlotte Moss, Pamela Shamshiri, Markham Roberts, Bunny Williams, Young Huh, Mark D. Sikes, Alexa Hampton, Veere Grenney, Lady Henrietta Spencer-Churchill, Ed Hollander, Ellie Cullman, Gil Schafer, and many more.

Show Chair Suzanne Tucker promises: “For anyone interested in art and design, furniture and the decorative arts - buying, collecting, or simply learning about art and antiques - this show is not to be missed. It’s a Bay Area ‘Must Do!’ of the fall social season with four wonderful, vibrant days filled with terrific dealers, fascinating lectures, and gobs of eye candy. “
