Art Fairs Descend Upon San Francisco This Week

May 16, 2012

As last year proved to be a good formula for art success, San Francisco will once again host 3 coinciding art fairs this weekend: artMRKT, ArtPadSF, and the SF Fine Art Fair. We are getting ourselves prepared for a few nights out, a few afternoons out of office, perhaps even a picture or a 100 of all the activity going on throughout the city.

Starting May 17 at the Concourse Exhibition Center will be artMRKT, featuring a wide-range of galleries including LeBasse (showing Dave Kinsey, above and below here), Eli Ridgway, Rena Bransten, and Park Life,.

ArtPadSF is hosted at the Phoenix Hotel surrounding a lovely pool, with galleries such as Electric Works, New Image Art, Gregory Lind, the Luggage Store, and 111 Minna. Again, it runs from May 17—May 20.

And if you like views of the San Francisco Bay, which we think you do, the SF FIne Art Fair will run at the Festival Pavilion at the Fort Mason Center. White Walls, Sandra Lee, and Hang Art. We epecially liked the PEZ x MQ wall at FIFTY24SF's booth last year...
