On September 7, 2013, the lower Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco will see a surge of contemporary art activity as four San Francisco art dealers launch inaugural shows in new gallery spaces on Utah Street and Potrero Avenue, each within a block of 16th Street.
Catharine Clark, Brian Gross, Jack Fischer and George Lawson join area pioneer Todd Hosfelt who reopened here in 2012, shifting the epicenter of contemporary galleries from downtown. All five galleries will coordinate Saturday afternoon openings on September 7th, with concurrent activities planned by surrounding established venues Southern Exposure (celebrating their 39th birthday), The CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, and Steven Wolf Fine Arts, along with the new Fuseproject, a collaboration between art dealer Jessica Silverman and designer Yves Behar.
Catharine Clark is moving from her Minna Street location adjacent to SFMOMA, Brian Gross and Jack Fischer are moving from the 49 Geary building downtown, and George Lawson is returning from Los Angeles, adding to his Sutter Street location. Art world buzz has a number of other prominent San Francisco galleries considering the revitalized urban neighborhood. Catharine Clark Gallery will announce its grand re-opening exhibition in August.
