If you’re up for seeing contemporary art and curious what the art world looks like when you get a bunch of galleries together showcasing their stable of artists, then pay a visit to the artMRKT San Francisco. It’s a wonderful look into the contemporary art world. Looking at the exhibitors list, you will find some great San Francisco galleries (i.e., Jack Fischer, Catherine Clark, Paule Anglim, and more). The MRKTworks Auction is an event that auctions off donated works, which then go to a beneficiary (one of them being quite special to me). Again, if you’re up for a one or a few days of art, artMRKT will not disappoint. See you there!
