stARTup Art Fair SF
3100 Webster Street
San Francisco - CA 94123
The art world is changing, and many working artists are finding themselves without a space to present their work. The core mission of stARTup Art Fair is to provide an exhibition venue for unrepresented artists -- artists who may have recently lost their gallery/galleries, or artists who have never had representation. Co-Founders Ray Beldner and Steve Zavattero believe in the viability of San Francisco and the Bay Area as an important visual art center. stARTup Art Fair provides a new avenue for the creative longevity of the visual artist, providing a marketplace that gives the artist the power to present and sell work -- and keep 100% of their sales proceeds -- on their own terms.

Photo L.A.

Santa Monica
We know what you're thinking, "Been there, done that." We're happy to tell you that Photo L.A. is an entirely different experience. We're bringing the best of the photography world to your doorstep with a collaborative platform that links dealers and collectors with a gamut of galleries from around the globe.

Photo L.A. has a long and rich history of bringing the photographic and arts community together. For one night and three days the community celebrates photography in its many forms. Each year we expand our uniquely diverse showcase of photographic art, ranging from 19th Century works to contemporary and innovative photography-based art. Galleries, dealers, museums, schools, and non-profit organizations participate to define what photography has been, what it is today, and what it might evolve into. To foster a dialogue we curate and present our acclaimed programming, which includes, lectures, roundtable discussions, special installations, and docent tours with distinguished members of the photograph / arts community.

Photo L.A. is a spectacle of relationships: between the history of photography and contemporary life, between viewers and works, and in the pure sociality of the event itself. The fair is a heightened node of activity around the image and all of its permutations, structured by a range of pavilions housing focused examples from the totality of photography. This historical range in material and focused density of experience add value and enrich understanding of the continuity of photography even amidst a historical transformation in the field.
