Not Your Average Art Fair

Katy Quigg | May 17, 2013 | Story Galleries and Performance

Fort Mason will be transformed this weekend into a mega-art gallery showcasing contemporary and modern works from 70 galleries around the world. At the third annual artMRKT, art enthusiasts can browse through innovative works by Bay Area artists as well as historically significant pieces such as Painting, a 1924 painting by Man Ray. The schedule includes talks and panel discussions by local curators and artists. The fair is already off to a good start, Brian Gross Fine Art sold a Robert Arneson self-portrait bronze for $200,000 and a David Hockney lithograph was purchased for $65,000.

We had a sneak peak at the show earlier in the week—here are some pieces by Bay Area artists that caught our eye.

Saturday, May 18, 2013—11:00am to 7:00pm
Sunday, May 19, 2013—Noon to 6:00pm
