Preview Opening: February 25, 6:30pm to 9pm.
Marin Center & Embassy Suites Hotel, San Rafael, CA.

The annual Marin Show: Art of the Americas celebrates its 27th year as the most substantive and extensive ongoing showcase focused on antique American Indian, Pre-Columbian, Spanish Colonial and contemporary American Indian art. The show brings together top dealers, collectors, artists, and academia from across the world.  The show’s main floor offers antique material, with the adjacent Embassy Suites Hotel ballroom, offering contemporary Native and Latin art and artists.

The exhibited art includes pottery, textiles, sculpture, jewelry, beadwork, baskets, paintings, photography and more, offering quality material for first time buyers and seasoned collectors.  A lecture on California Indian Baskets will be held on Saturday, February 26 at 9am, with a second lecture on Navajo Blankets of the Classic Period to be held on Sunday, February 27 at 10am.

Some exceptional pieces available on the market are expected at the show, including a 3rd Phase, Classic period Navajo Chief’s Blanket c. 1860-65.  And award-winning Native American artist and professional demonstrator Daniel Ramirez chose this show to launch a new art project called “The World’s Longest Native American Painting”.  The Marin Show: Art of the Americas is part of the 2nd annual Arte Du Monde SF, which runs throughout the month of February, and is a celebration of the Bay Area’s influential cultural arts scene.

The Opening Night Preview on Feb. 25 ($25) will feature recipes from top local Chef Scott Howard (FIVE, SCOTT HOWARD, Brick & Bottle), who will be in attendance, and will benefit the renowned charity Homeward Bound of Marin.
