Tribal & Ethnic Art Holiday Party & Sale

Dec. 1

A large display of ethnic and tribal art will be available to the public on Saturday, December 1 from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Piedmont Center for the Arts

Organized by Piedmont resident Dave DeRoche and co-hosted by Friends of Ethnic Art and San Francisco Tribal, the event includes an art show and sale of rare art objects. 

Two of the most active organizations in the SF Bay Area’s thriving tribal and ethnic arts

community have joined forces to open the holiday season with an art exhibition.  

Spurred by the success and enthusiasm of both art buyers and sellers at this past

summer’s Friends of Ethnic Art Treasure Market, the dealers who constitute San Francisco Tribal helped create a sale with a holiday reception.

These vibrant nonprofits share the same goals:  to expose and educate new and young people to the aesthetic and cultural delights of ethnic and tribal art.

This event will join the tribal art professionals of SF Tribal with the art collectors of Friends of Ethnic Art. 

Dozens of sellers and traders are expected to be at display tables and offer treasures from all over the world at different price levels. There will be up to 35 tables laden with ethnic, ancient, and tribal art offered at exceptionally tempting prices. Items on display are from dealers overstocked with collections, art lovers, world travelers, retiring dealers, and aging collectors who are downsizing.

On display will be ethnic and tribal art of Africa; Oceania, including New Guinea, the South Seas, and Indonesia; The Americas, including Pre-Colombian, American Indian, and Spanish Colonial; Tribal Asia, including Southeast Asia, the Himalayas, Indonesia; and China, Japan, and India.

Also being shown are Masks, Figurative Sculptures of Wood and Stone, Shields and Weapons, Ethnic Jewelry and Adornment, Textiles, and Ceremonial, Ritual, and Healing Objects

This event is a great excuse to wear your festive ethnic clothing and jewelry.

A reception will include a cornucopia of tasty ethnic appetizers, festive holiday foods and drinks.

Friends of Ethnic Art cannot accept credit cards, but personal checks are fine. 

The doors open at 3:45 p.m. for entry to the Reception area, and at 4 p.m. to entry to the Sale.
