October 6-8, 2017: Objects of Art LA

Objects of Art LA debuts at The Reef in Los Angeles on October 6-8, 2017. Not your grandmother's antique show, veteran collectors and other devotees will find a vast and select mix of contemporary art, antiques, and ethnographic works.
While the art world has long presented historic and contemporary works as separate categories of art, the Objects of Art LA combines the genres to present the finest objects along a global continuum of artistry, place, and period. On offer at the show will be a discerning selection of historic and contemporary art objects, at a range of price points, that appeal to varied tastes, including tribal, folk, and American Indian art; works on paper and canvas; three dimensional pieces in wood, ceramics, and bronze; fashion, jewelry, furniture, books and more.

More than 70 prestigious gallery owners and other exhibitors will present thousands of choice art objects handmade by master artists and designers in a range of media. Prices will range from $25 to over $100,000. The three-day event will take place Friday through Sunday at The Reef in Los Angeles' downtown vibrant art community. The event will kick off on Friday evening, October 6, with an opening gala from 7 to 10 p.m. benefiting ROCK THE ELEPHANT®, an organization committed to addressing the wildlife crisis in Africa and across the globe. John Randall of Christian the Lion fame will be a special guest. The show continues from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday through Sunday, October 7- 8. Admission includes access to a special exhibit "The Journey is the Destination," a collection of limited edition Dan Eldon safari prints, some on offer for the first time.
"This is not your grandmother's antique show," says Kim Martindale, the show's coproducer. "The goal of the show is not about having a complete set of Chippendale furniture. People are no longer keeping strict boundaries in art, they are uniting and putting diverse pieces together. They want to have art and design they can live with, they can wear, and they can love.

The show is the first annual Los Angeles Objects event put on by Martindale, veteran collector and the presenter of the LA Art Show, and John Morris whose event experience began more than 40 years ago promoting and producing landmark musical events including the original Woodstock music festival. Together they also produce the
popular Object of Art Shows in Santa Fe and San Francisco.

With rising interest in superb, one-of-a-kind examples of both historic and contemporary works, the Objects of Art Shows model elevates diversity and quality above rigid categorization. Los Angeles seemed like the perfect destination for the show.

Admission for the opening night party is $75 per person and will benefit Rock the Elephant. Purchase tickets HERE. General admission SHOW ONLY is $20; Onsite parking available for a fee.
