Private Collections Showcases Amazing Art

For many of us, the closest brush with a collector of notable art comes from reading their name on museum signage, as in the small placard under a painting that reads "on loan from ____." But once a year, some of the best art collections in San Francisco are on view in the most intimate setting possible, the private residences where they hang. An event called (Private) Collections allows ticket holders to go behind the doors of a home on a roster that includes SF's most exciting art luminaries. What makes this a can't-miss happening is that the collectors are on hand to personally lead guests through their works and speak about them. This year, the challenging art of Jeff Dauber will be showcased in his home designed by Berkeley architect Thom Faulders. Purchase a ticket at and you can see it in person, but here's a sneak preview.
