It's art fair season again in San Francisco and this year has brought some changes. Where the city had built itself up to hosting three fairs over the last few years, this year has seen them consolidated down to a single event. Returning to the Fort Mason Center, Art Market San Francisco will host over 70 galleries comprised of a good mixture of local, national, and international exhibitors. With the recent Silicon Valley art fair turning out to be a complete dud, there is hope that this year’s fair will better represent what the art world has to offer to the tech-set of San Francisco. In any event, art fair season is the one time of year that the local art world gathers together in one place to gossip, renew relationships, and check out what everyone is doing. I hope to see you there!
