2014 San Francisco artMRKT
More than 70 galleries gather works and installations at the 2014 San Francisco artMRKT to shed light on the direction of contemporary art while giving context through historically important pieces. Hailing from around the globe, these cultural bastions include Kala Gallery and Print Room from Berkeley, Tally Beck Contemporary from New York, and Zemack Contemporary Art from Tel Aviv, Israel. Guests who become smitten with a particular piece can ask gallery representatives about it, bid on it at auction, or take it out on a nice romantic dinner for two. And to prepare for the event, they can view auction pieces online and get a feel for the setup by browsing photos and videos from years past.
