Established in 2001 by Heather Marx and Steve Zavattero, the gallery was well known for exhibiting and representing artists who engaged in a variety of practices indicative of a strong, singular voice.
We are permanently closing our contemporary art gallery after operating for nearly 12 years. We are proud to have mounted close to 100 exhibitions in our San Francisco space and to have organized a significant number of outside exhibitions for our artists during the gallery’s existence.
It’s been a great run, and we are extremely proud of all we have accomplished with our provocative program in a very tough art market. This was a very painful decision as we built our lives around our love and support for our artists, both as great talents and as people. However, it has become startlingly clear that the brick-and-mortar gallery model is no longer a sustainable endeavor for us.
As we are not willing to compromise our vision by shifting to a more market-driven business, we decided to close the gallery now, on a high note, when our artists and our own contributions will be remembered in the strongest light.
