Black Tie International:
The Marin Show:  Art of the Americas



The Marin Show: Art of the Americas is proud to announce that the Opening Night Preview on Friday, February 25th at the Marin Civic Center in San Rafael and benefiting the acclaimed local charity Homeward Bound of Marin for the second year in a row, will feature recipes from top Bay Area chef Scott Howard (FIVE, SCOTT HOWARD, Brick & Bottle), who will also be in attendance.

"Brick & Bottle was conceived to be a true community restaurant and for us that means supporting organizations that are doing good work here in Marin. That's why we have our charity corkage program and it's why I'm involved with events like this one", says Howard. "Homeward Bound is about giving people a second chance, an opportunity, and especially in these tough economic times, that's really important."

The Opening Night Preview benefiting Homeward Bound of Marin will begin at 6:30pm on Friday. Chef Scott Howard will be in attendance to show his support for the organization and will contribute his recipes to the non-profit's social enterprise project, Fresh Starts Catering, which is catering the Opening Night Preview. Menu items to date include Dungeness Crab Cake Bites and Buttermilk & Chive Biscuits with Pimento Cheese.

During the evening, guests will have the opportunity for 'first look' at the most substantive and extensive ongoing showcase focused on antique American Indian, Pre-Columbian, Spanish Colonial and contemporary American Indian art. In its 27th year, this show brings together top and passionate dealers, collectors, artists, and academia from across the world offering pottery, textiles, sculpture, jewelry, beadwork, baskets, paintings, and photography, ranging in price from low 100s to 100s of thousands of dollars. Renowned Native American artist Daniel Ramirez will also be launching "The World's Longest Native American Painting."

Earning his reputation as the chef at the popular Fork restaurant in San Anselmo, and now co-founder and partner of newly launched Brick & Bottle, Howard is known for classic American dishes with signature touches, such as his famous Pimento Cheeseburger with Cabbage Slaw and Chili, Petrale Sole with Dungeness Crab Potato Puree, and Butterscotch Pudding with Peanut Brittle and Whipped Cream. Attracted to the rich culinary community of the Bay Area, Scott relocated to the West Coast after working at a number of prestigious restaurants in Florida, and opened his first and highly acclaimed restaurant, Fork. Now, after over five years at both the eponymous SCOTT HOWARD restaurant in San Francisco and at FIVE in Berkeley, Scott has returned to his Marin home base as Executive Chef at his new restaurant, Brick & Bottle. His signature California cooking with a twist on classic comfort foods has been eagerly welcomed by his strong local following.

In an effort to give back to the community, Scott and Brick & Bottle team also work with Guide Dogs for the Blind, Hospice by the Bay, and Meals on Wheels, as well as always supporting the local Marin schools.

All proceeds from the Opening Night will benefit Homeward Bound of Marin, whose mission of "opening doors to safety, dignity, hope and independence" is coupled with a vision that "everyone deserves a place to call home". HBofM is Marin County's chief provider of shelter and residential services for homeless families and individuals. Opening Night Preview tickets are $25.00, advance purchase suggested

The Marin Show: Art of the Americas is part of the 2nd annual Arte Du Monde San Francisco, which runs the month of February 2011, and is a call to action and celebration of the Bay Area's influential cultural arts scene. Arte Du Monde SF is anchored by three major international art fairs which collectively showcase more
than 400 of the world's most respected galleries, educational programming, local art exhibitions and cultural events. For additional information on Arte Du Monde SF, please visit

About KR Martindale Show Management
For over three decades, Kim Martindale has produced many of the country's most prestigious and successful historic art shows, including Marin Show: Art of the Americas. In addition, since 1994, he's brought the same professionalism and enthusiasm to a series of contemporary fine art shows most notably, The Los Angeles Art Show.

About Homeward Bound of Marin
Homeward Bound of Marin's mission of "opening doors to safety, dignity, hope and independence" is coupled with a vision that "everyone deserves a place to call home." Homeward Bound is Marin County's chief provider of shelter and residential services for homeless families and individuals, serving approximately 1,400 people annually in 14 inter-related residential programs. In 2008-2009, 95% of families served and 84% of adults completing these programs moved to stable housing. Homeward Bound of Marin made philanthropic history when it launched the nation's first non-profit IPO, an "Immediate Public end homelessness" by selling fundraising "shares" to close financing for The Next Key Center.

About Scott Howard
Scott Howard, co-founder and partner of newly launched Brick & Bottle, has a breadth of experience and skill which has made him highly regarded in the culinary community. Raised in North Carolina, Scott developed a passion for cooking early on. Starting out, Scott moved to Florida to work at prestigious restaurants such as Norman Van Aken's Amano's, as well as Lure and Mise en Place Market Bistro. Attracted to the rich culinary community of the Bay Area, Scott relocated to the West Coast and opened his first and highly acclaimed restaurant, Fork. In 2005, Scott sold his shares and pursued his dream to open a fine dining restaurant in the heart of San Francisco and launched SCOTT HOWARD. Following this project, Scott was appointed Executive Chef at FIVE - a restaurant he continues to work for as creative consulting chef. Today, Scott is the Executive Chef at Brick & Bottle. With a strong local following and history within Marin, Scott brings his signature California cooking to the restaurant with a twist on classic comfort foods.
