Celebrating today’s most significant creatives and leading contributors to the worlds of design and visual arts, the fair assembles 48 leading international galleries; prominent 20th-century and contemporary design dealers; a weekend of exciting programs; and 21POP, a special installation created by Stanlee Gatti.

FOG has become a focal point for the design and arts communities on the West Coast and further afield. The fair is synonymous with a uniquely pioneering spirit due to its bold hybrid approach and intimate presentation of art and design, dynamic programming on-site and its community-led mission to champion art and design in its historic Fort Mason setting. Building on FOG’s longstanding commitment to cultural institutions, the fair’s Preview Gala is honored to continue its crucial support of SFMOMA’s exhibitions and education programs. FOG represents a key moment in which the local and global community congregate to engage in critical dialogue, artistic exchanges, and a shared passion for creative pursuits.

The Cathedral Antiques Show is a festival of art, antiques and floral and interior design held annually to benefit a designated charity. All net proceeds go to a beneficiary chosen yearly from many worthy Atlanta-area nonprofits.

 

While the Show is held at the Cathedral of St. Philip and is a major outreach project sponsored by the Episcopal Church Women, the Cathedral receives no funding from the Show. With the help of hundreds of volunteers and support from the church, antiques dealers, corporate sponsors, patrons and the community, the Cathedral Antiques Show has raised more than $5.2 million for Atlanta-area nonprofits since its inception in 1969.

The Chair of the 2020 show - our 49th - is Jenny McClure, and the Chair-Elect is Anne Matthews.

Out Sider Art Fair

Metropolitan Pavilion

125 W. 18th Street

New York, NY 10011

January 16 - 19, 2020

 

Founded in New York in 1993, the Outsider Art Fair is the original art fair concentrating specifically on self-taught art and presenting works by acknowledged masters and such living artists as George Widener, Susan Te Kahurangi King, Shinichi Sawada, Christine Sefolosha and Luboš Plný. Soon recognized for its maverick spirit, OAF played a vital role in nurturing a passionate collecting community and broader recognition for outsider art in the contemporary art arena.

After Wide Open Arts took over the fair, the OAF in 2013 enjoyed rave reviews and more than tripled its previous attendance records. Propelled by this success, Wide Open Arts took the fair to Paris for the first time in October 2013, helping to reinvigorate that city’s long tradition in the art brut field. After holding the fair during its first two years at Hôtel Le A, a boutique hotel, in 2015 OAF Paris relocated to Hôtel du Duc, a stately, nineteenth-century hôtel particulier in the Opéra district. In 2018, the fair expaned to its current venue, Atelier Richelieu, located in the 2nd arrondissement and returns for its 7th Parisian edition in 2019. in January 2020, the fair will return to the Metropolitan Pavilion for its 28th edition.
