stARTup Art Fair San Francisco is a contemporary art fair for independent artists.
This three-day fair will run April 28-30, 2017 at the Hotel Del Sol in the Marina district of San Francisco, and takes place at the same time as SF Art Market at Fort Mason, minutes away. Participating artists will have a fantastic opportunity to expose new work to a myriad of collectors, curators, gallery owners, art consultants, and writers who will be coming to the city for a weekend of contemporary art.
One of the core missions of stARTup Art Fair is to provide a marketplace that gives artists the power to present and sell work on their own terms. All sales proceeds, as well as professional contacts made during the fair, belong 100% to the artists.
Those selected from the open application process will each take over a hotel room for the course of three days to present a solo show of their work. Through its democratic, online application, stARTup Art Fair gives artists the opportunity to have their work reviewed by an impressive, influential Selection Committee with a diverse range of art world professionals that includes:
Jonas Almgren: CEO, Artfinder.com
Trish Bransten: Director, Rena Bransten Gallery, San Francisco
