Between October 16 and October 25th, our data is going to San Francisco to participate in the 2020 San Francisco Fall Show of Art, Antiques, and Design, but the art itself is staying in Santa Barbara. We’ll be using the art fair’s web platform on InCollect.com to show a selection of our best – and most regionally appropriate – art in one of the region’s most storied art fairs. We’ll be using our downtown gallery space to give Santa Barbara residents and out of town guests a taste of how we look when we step out. It’s an art fair you don’t have to leave town to attend, and fancy dress is optional but absolutely welcome.
In 2011 and 2012, Sullivan Goss participated in what was then called The San Francisco Fall Antiques Show at a venue on the water at Fort Mason. We loved the party and the people, but decided not to return so we could focus on our core program back at the gallery. (We will miss the opening night’s festivities, however. What a great party!) This year’s invitation to participate came at a good time, so we opted in.
A selection of 30 works – paintings, drawings, watercolors, sculptures and prints – created between 1878 and this year will be arranged according to design principles instead of for thematic or historical reasons. Realism, Impressionism, Tonalism, Arts & Crafts, Cubism, Abstract Expressionism, and Op Art will all be represented by some of our favorite examples.

STRONG, FLOWER CROWNED WOMEN. Mice figurines living in their own tiny worlds. Soaring skycaps above calm oceans. California landscapes hanging besides 60’s abstract works. This fall, visitors of Sullivan Goss – An American Gallery will be greeted with these delightful works and more as they explore The Green House and The San Francisco Fall Show exhibitions.
For four decades, dealers and patrons have been spoiled by the grandeur of the San Francisco Fall Show, from postcard views to the popping of Champagne bottles. This year, those extras will be shelved, but fortunately, fans can still expect a collector’s paradise of art, antiques and decor and — mais oui — revel in some retail therapy.
If this year’s event has revealed one thing, it’s the loyalty of the show’s longstanding dealers, with more than 90 percent of the stable partaking in the new format. Additionally, several dealers who haven’t exhibited at the show in more than a decade will be returning, including Carolle Thibaut-Pomerantz, Sullivan Goss and Liz O’Brien. And exciting new vendors have been added to the lineup, including Barbara Israel Garden Antiques, Michael Goedhuis, Finch & Company, O’Sullivan Antiques, Philip Stites (formerly of Therien), Somerville Manning, the Chinese Porcelain Company and Ursus Books.
