ArtPadSF comes to San Francisco May 19–22, 2011

The ArtPadSF Contemporary Art Fair comes to San Francisco May 19–22, an independent hotel-based art fair focusing on emerging and contemporary galleries and artists from the Bay Area and beyond debuting at the legendary Phoenix Hotel.

“The Phoenix is the quintessential place to launch an independent art fair,” ArtPadSF Director Maria Jenson notes. “It’s an oasis located in a San Francisco neighborhood  that’s on the edge, and for many artists, collectors, and enthusiasts, exploring the areas just outside of our comfort zones or what we recognize as familiar, is often the most invigorating way to find hidden treasures. Collecting can be fun and need not be limited to the exceptionally affluent. It can also be as much about the hunt as it is the find. ArtPadSF is an adventure–for us as producers, for our exhibiting galleries and artists, for our partners and sponsors, and hopefully for ArtPadSF visitors.”
