    Designer Suzanne Tucker will chair the San Francisco Fall Antiques Show

The 2015 San Francisco Fall Antiques Show (FAS) will arrive like clockwork on Thursday, October 22 through Sunday, October 25 at Fort Mason’s Festival Pavilion with the theme Time After Time: Bringing the Past Present. This year’s focus speaks to the lasting quality of beautiful pieces, the time that goes into creating a work of art and the vast timespan the objects in the show encompass. This year, the curated Loan Exhibition will showcase the evolution, design and beauty of timepieces from across time. 

The Show will feature sixty 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.  

“For anyone interested in the Decorative Arts, buying, collecting, or simply learning about art and antiques, the San Francisco Fall Antiques Show is not to be missed,” says this year’s Show Chair, Suzanne Tucker. “After 34 years, it's a Bay Area ‘must do’ of the most wonderful, vibrant four days filled with terrific dealers, fascinating lectures and gobs of eye candy! I am thrilled to be chairing the Show this year and encourage everyone to go see for yourselves, explore the booths, meet the dealers, learn a lot and take home a fabulous find.  Don't miss the opening night party and take a tip from what every top designer knows – The Fall Antiques Show makes for outstanding shopping and a never-ending treasure hunt!” 

As always, 100% of net proceeds benefit Enterprise for High School Students, the San Francisco nonprofit that prepares and empowers a diverse group of Bay Area youth to pursue life after school with passion and purpose. Enterprise offers students everything they need to get and keep their first job, including intensive workshops, pragmatic skills and career exploration training, a network of advisors and peers, a broad database of paid internships, and college and career counseling.
