The 37th American Indian Art Show / San Francisco Moves Online this February 24 through the 28, 2021 Offering Showgoers a Safe Way to Attend the Annual Event


SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time, enthusiast and collectors of antique and contemporary American Indian art can attend the 37th Annual American Indian Art Show/ San Francisco virtually. Usually held at Fort Mason in San Francisco, COVID-19 has caused the organizers to quickly take the show online this year.

The American Indian Art Show/ San Francisco is the most significant showcase of American Indian art on the west coast, with an emphasis on antique American Indian art as well as Pre-Columbian, Spanish Colonial, and the best in contemporary American Indian art. The show will have over 50 exhibitors participating from around the world including the Mark Blackburn Gallery from Marfa, Texas offering, among other things, a superb Eskimo mask from the mid 19th century or earlier. From Tucson, Arizona, the prominent dealer Terry DeWald will have an exceptional San Carlos Apache figural olla with human and zoomorphic figures circa 1910. Also, from Tucson, Mark Sublette of the Medicine Man Gallery will have a rare Navajo wedge weave blanket with raveled and Germantown yarns that has never before been on offer to the public. Four Winds out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania will have beautiful American Indian jewelry including a cuff made by Navajo Fred Peshlakai (1896-1974) of natural turquoise and silver.

Going forward, the organizers have decided to permanently add a virtual edition for the show, but plan to open up the physical show at Fort Mason as soon as possible.

Besides viewing individual pieces online during the show, attendees can also participate in Virtual Exhibitor Conversations that will work like Zoom office hours, allowing showgoers to talk directly with the experts and ask them questions. There will also be a robust lineup of virtual talks available for free.
