Scope and Contents:
The Anneberg Gallery records measure 4.4 linear feet and date from 1945 to 1992, with the bulk of the records dating from 1966 to 1981. The collection sheds light on the gallery's operations through administrative records, artist files, exhibition files, and photographic material.

Administrative records include financial papers such as sales invoices, expenses, consignment records; notes, writings, and reference cards pertaining to international and Native folk art, particularly ceremonial and non-ceremonial masks; and scant printed material. Administrative records also include a ledger that belonged to the painter James Edgar Forkner. Artist files consist of correspondence, biographical material, printed material, price lists, sales invoices, and some photographic material. Exhibition files consist of correspondence with importers of the exhibited material, price lists, announcements, some shipping and delivery documents, newspaper clippings, and notes. This series also includes a scrapbook consisting of the gallery's exhibition announcements and posters. Photographic material includes negatives, slides, snapshots, and contact sheets of textiles, fabrics, sculptures and figurines, international artists and artisans, as well as some personal images taken in San Francisco, California and Seattle, Washington.

Biographical / Historical:
The Anneberg Gallery was founded in San Francisco, California, in 1966 by Margery Anneberg. The gallery's original name was The Jewelry Shop and Gallery, but it changed to Anneberg Gallery in 1967. The gallery exhibited local artists and crafts; however, it specialized in the exhibition and sale of international folk art. Anneberg gathered textiles, masks, fabrics, baskets, sculptures, and much more from collectors and importers around the world. The gallery showcased items from the Middle East, China, Japan, Africa, South America, Mexico, and others. Although mostly involved in displaying contemporary crafts, the gallery did exhibit some historical artifacts as well.
Provenance:
The collection was donated in 2004 by Craig T. Anneberg, brother of gallery owner Margery Anneberg, as part of the Nanette L. Laitman Documentation Project for Craft and Decorative Arts in America.
