LOS ANGELES, CA – 08 Feb, 2016 – Following the great success of its groundbreaking first show in Santa Monica in 2013, The Second Los Angeles African Art Show is now returning to Los Angeles, April 14-17th., in a larger, more exciting venue and with an expanded format at the Venice Arts Center on Lincoln Boulevard in Los Angeles.
This Show will feature over 100 authentic antique African art objects, including masks, statues, and other objects, and feature only objects that have been strictly vetted by committees of experts in Paris, Brussels, London, New York, and San Francisco.
With a VIP opening night cocktail party on Thursday, April 14 from 6 pm to 9 pm, the Show will run through 5 pm on Sunday, April 17, 2016. The Los Angeles African Art Show II is the premiere, one-weekend only event for Los Angeles buyers, collectors, and enthusiasts with an interest in elite quality antique African art.
The Show is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to buy and view over 100 pieces of museum quality African art, supplied by over 30 of the most prestigious African art dealers in Europe and North America and sourced from rarely-accessed private collections throughout the world. For buyers and collectors, provided with each piece are extensive dossiers, which provide history, age and background on each object and a certificate of authenticity.

Highlights of the Show include a featured exhibition of antique masks and figures from Sierra Leone and a special exhibition and sale of antique twin figures (ibeji) of the Yoruba Tribe in Nigeria.
