We are excited to return to live in-person events this August in Santa Fe, New Mexico! There is nothing like seeing material and talking with experts face-to-face.
As you may know, Objects of Art Shows put on two virtual fairs in February 2021 for the first time when the physical shows shuttered due to COVID-19. They were a huge success! They expanded the exhibitor offerings and brought in record numbers of showgoers from 30 countries. We raised approximately $11,000 for Blessingway in support of the Navajo Nation COVID response. What we discovered was that a virtual show is a fantastic way to see and buy art when you can’t be at the physical show, and would make a strong addition to any of our physical shows in the future for people and exhibitors that can’t come to the Shows.
Building upon what we learned from these first virtual presentations, we’ve created a brand new, state-of-the-art, virtual show platform, designed specifically for Objects of Art Shows. It will have many functions to make it easy to navigate and use for both exhibitors and shoppers, including a tool that allows you to create a personalized list of favorites and share it with others.
The new virtual platform will launch with the Objects of Art Santa Fe and the Antique American Indian Art Santa Fe shows this August alongside the physical shows.
The Objects of Art Shows continue to bring together an extensive collection of historic to contemporary material that includes fashion and jewelry, furniture and books, tribal, folk and American Indian art, works on paper and canvas, and three- dimensional pieces in wood, ceramic and bronze. The range is vast, the selection is discerning, and the result is exhibitions of exceptional objects of art. By showcasing the most renowned art dealers in the West’s most celebrated cities for art—Santa Fe and San Francisco—Kim Martindale and John Morris, with decades of experience producing historically significant shows in the art and music realm, have created a unique collection of art shows curated to create an unparalleled art experience. Shows include the San Francisco Tribal and Textile Art Show, offering an exciting mix of the best tribal art from around the world; Objects of Art Santa Fe, showcasing an eclectic blend of contemporary, historic and antique material; the American Indian Art Show San Francisco and the Antique American Indian Art Show Santa Fe, featuring the finest American Indian art.
We are excited to be the Show Company that will host live in-person events and virtual shows, allowing the collector and exhibitor to share their passion for art in person and virtually. Hope to see you at the Shows!
