The San Francisco Tribal & Textile Art Show is celebrating its 32nd Anniversary in 2018, and the bringing together of collectors, designers, and art aficionados for a celebration of global ethnographic arts. This 2018 show will present materials from South East Asia, the Oceanic Islands, the Middle East, Central and South America, Africa, the Cook and Solomon Islands, Polynesia and Indonesia. Opening Night Gala will include live music, cocktails and other libations, hors d'oeuvres and an opportunity to celebrate, mingle with the exhibitors and have the first opportunity to purchase at the show.

Proceeds from this event benefit textile arts and the arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas at the de Young

The de Young's collections of textiles and arts from Africa, Oceania, and the Americas have been considered city treasures for many years. The Opening Preview Gala for the San Francisco Tribal & Textile Art Show benefits these celebrated holdings, and the curatorial departments that will protect and preserve them for generations to come. For collectors, this event provides early access to the show and an advance look at the exceptional works of art and artifacts from around the world presented by the best national and international dealers.
