The 16th Annual Los Angeles Antiques Show, featuring 65 exhibitors from across the U.S. and Europe, will be held Thursday through Sunday, April 14 through 17 at the Santa Monica Airport Barker Hangar.
Billed as one of the most highly regarded events among West Coast collectors, the Los Angeles Antiques Show will benefit P.S. Arts, a nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring arts education in public schools.
The show is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. April 14 through 16, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 17 at the Barker Hangar, 3021 Airport Ave., Santa Monica.
“This is a stage for showcasing the best in home design from different decades,” said Robert Wilson, a co-chair of the Los Angeles Antiques Show. “We have long felt that a proper representation of vintage fashions would be an important element to integrate and this collaboration will be an incredibly exciting new centerpiece for us.”
The entrance tent, decorated by Los Angeles-based designer Mary McDonald, will be a highly anticipated element of the show, which attracts several thousand guests, event organizers said.
The Los Angeles Antiques Show highlights 17th, 18th and 19th century American, English and Continental furniture, decorative arts, 20th century modernism, Native American Indian, tribal, Asian, and African arts, event organizers said.
Featured in the show are modernism elements with an emphasis on unique works and custom pieces by designers, decorators and architects as well as artists from the 21st century. Gerard O’Brien’s reform gallery will include works by Paul McCabb, and a limited edition of Pablo Picasso’s ceramics (1940s-1960s) will be included, along with custom furnishings by architect Gio Ponti brought by Todd Merrill, organizers said.
Dealer Billy Haines will showcase some key works by T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, who designed custom furnishings for one of the most famous homes in Bel Air – Casa Encantada – the interior of which took several years to complete, organizers noted.
Admission is $20 and includes return entry and show catalog.
