The Best In Modern And Contemporary Art Comes To Fort Mason For Art Market San FranciscoAuthor:Michelle Konstantinovsky
If your home is lacking a certain artistic flair, you’ll want to head to Fort Mason this weekend for the fifth annual Art Market San Francisco. Considered the Bay Area’s must-attend modern and contemporary art extravaganza, the event will include avant-garde presentations and installations from 70+ top galleries around the world.
The eclectic collection of pieces includes Stephen Whistler’s Observer, presented by Chandra Cerrito Contemporary. Modeled after the form of the traditional prison tower, the foreboding sculpture is stationed at the fair’s front entrance and features an interactive component, allowing viewers to climb inside. Rena Bransten Projects will also present three wooden sculptures by Sam Perry in the fair’s café space, and Ever Gold Gallery will present Adam Parker Smith’s Preggers, a variety of spheres protruding through a wall of venetian blinds, and offering an intriguing peek into the artist’s humor and depth.
ArtHaus will also be hosting a black and white booth featuring works from Adam Kurtzman, Mirang Wonne, Carolyn Meyer, Jeffrey Ketcham, Serena Bocchino, Jhina Alvarado, John Wood, and Maxine Solomon.
The five-day fair kicks off with a benefit for the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, comprised of the de Young and Legion of Honor. In addition to live entertainment, hosted bars, and hors d’oeuvres from McCalls Catering & Events, guests will receive early access to the show and sit in on exlusive panel discussions and keynote speeches.
Art Market is also bringing back its charity auction, inviting attendees to give back to a list of worthy causes. All proceeds from the event will directly benefit Root Division, Museum of Craft and Design, Illuminate the Arts, and Museum of the African Diaspora.
