Palm Springs Modernism Show & Sale – Fall Edition Sets New Record for Number of Dealers – October Event Showcases Important 20th and 21st Century Furniture and Art Objects
Palm Springs, CA (October 9, 2018) – The fifth annual Palm Springs Modernism Show & Sale – Fall Edition, held during Modernism Week’s Fall Preview October 19-21, 2018, will showcase 46 premier national and international decorative and fine arts dealers, a new record for the popular event. It will be held in Oasis 1 room at the Palm Springs Convention Center, located at 277 North Avenida Caballeros in Palm Springs, CA, and is a more intimate version of the annual Palm Springs Modernism Show & Sale held in February.
“Besides being the largest Fall Edition of the Modernism Show & Sale to date, this event will feature several prominent dealers from the February show that have not previously participated in the fall,” said Rosemary Krieger, President of Dolphin Promotions. “We will also present a few well-regarded dealers who are completely new to the show, which raises the overall quality of items offered at the Fall Edition.”
A festive Opening Night Party and Early Buying Preview Reception benefiting Modernism Week will be held Friday evening, October 19 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and offers attendees a cocktail reception, DJ and an exclusive sneak peek (and the chance to be the first to shop) at the Modernism Show & Sale before it opens to the general public. Tickets for the Friday night early buying preview reception are $60 in advance at modernismweek.com
or $75 at the door (all tickets include return entry to the show all weekend).
Also, on Saturday, the show will feature a book signing by author Doug Meyer from 1 to 3 p.m. Meyer’s new book, “HEROES: A Tribute,” pays homage to brilliant creative figures such as Robert Mapplethorpe, Keith Haring and Rudolph Nureyev, who were among the first to succumb to AIDS and AIDS-related diseases. Printed in multiple papers with pops of neon color and painted edges echoing the artist’s work, HEROES is a gorgeous, hard-cover feast for the eyes and soul.
