Antiquity to Contemporary:
A Renewed Vision at the Show
"All art is contemporary, if it's alive. And if it's not alive, what's the point of it?"
Since 1982 the Fall Antiques Show has brought the most venerable dealers from around the world to present art and antiques of the finest caliber. For many years we have had a date of a half-century or older as the cut-off for pieces in the Show. As we enter our 35th year, we find it is time to do away with this date requirement and invite our exhibitors to bring pieces from antiquity to present day. Walking the aisles of this year’s Show, our guests will still be in awe of the beauty and splendor of the finest art and antiques throughout time and one will view pieces from many centuries back, as well as from the 20th and even 21st centuries.
We constantly look to be relevant to the community we serve and to appeal to the widest audience of people who share our passion for art, antiques, style and design. Today’s contemporary works of art are tomorrow’s antiques, and all are relevant, all speak to who we are and what objects we find beautiful and appealing in our time. As always the Show will continue to be fully vetted and carefully curated with a strict criteria, especially for more recent pieces. We are excited to share this new chapter with you.

High School Students
Enterprise spring programs are in full swing! Volunteers from First Republic Bank, Salesforce and Square are conducting Mock Interviews for approximately 100 youth, prodiving the chance to practice interview skills with professionals in the community. Students walk away feeling significantly more confident than when they walked in. The volunteers provide valuable feedback that the students take with them to future interviews. This is truly a life-changing experience that many will never forget. On behalf of Enterprise, we are so grateful for such amazing partners!
