Santa Monica Art Studios is a 22,000 square foot hangar where artists work in private studio spaces and can participate in classes, lectures, and exhibitions and take advantage of discussion critique and collaboration. An integrated and vibrant community of artists, it was initially conceived by founder Yossi Govrin four years ago at the height of competition from dot com companies and film studios for affordable spaces in Santa Monica. A study commissioned by the City of Santa Monica documented that more than half the artist studios in the city had been eliminated in a three-month period while the report was being finalized. Drawing on 18 years experience of creating and running one of the first such art centers in Santa Monica, Govrin approached the city of Santa Monica in 2000 and was awarded the project in early 2001. With partner Sherry Frumkin who has owned a gallery in Santa Monica for the past 14 years, the project was finally approved for construction in December 2003. As part of the project, 2400 square feet were dedicated for ARENA 1 Gallery, an exhibition space where cutting edge work is featured in shows organized by curators across the globe. Santa Monica Art Studios is at the heart of a series of arts related improvements at the airport that will anchor the area and contribute to the growing reputation of Santa Monica as a cultural mecca. Designed by Villya Karalius, with concept design by Tanja Rector and construction by Uri Mizrachi of AVI, the interior takes full advantage of the soaring airplane hangar roofline. Skylights and a Plexiglas opening cut around the entire building allow light to pour in at all angles. Twelve foot white walls against the aged patina of the exposed metal structure provide the perfect environment for creative endeavors.

bG gallery specializes in accomplished artists who have crossed traditionally contentious art ideologies including expressive-conceptual, insider-outsider, high-low and figurative-abstract. The post modern era raised questions about the importance of originality and genre. We believe that an ‘anything goes’ answer to these questions has led to short lived market trends that are unfair to the investors and artists that get caught up in them. A more appropriate response to the postmodern quandary is an exploration of basic truths that survive through multiple genres and movements. Works that speak to these truths in conjunction to a pioneering approach typically are the works that have established historical legacy. Our aim is to bring authentic art with elements of human spirit back to the forefront of the contemporary art scene. Art that does not hide and succeeds in spite or because of its flaws . bG Gallery strives to foster, establish, and secure the careers of artists producing truthful works of art high in cognitive and emotional content.

The gallery was established in 1991 as Turner/Krull Gallery in West Hollywood. During the gallery’s three years on Melrose Avenue, the program was exclusively photo-based.

The inaugural exhibition, “Photographing L.A. Architecture,” demonstrated Krull’s interest in the cultural history of Southern California and also marked the beginning of his representation of noted L.A. artists such as Julius Shulman, James Fee, and Edmund Teske. Curatorial projects included, “Action/Performance and the Photograph,” a group exhibition examining the relationship of still photography to performance art.

In 1994, Craig Krull became one of the founding galleries at the new Bergamot Station Art Center. Since that time, the gallery has expanded its scope and it now represents major Southern California painters and sculptors such as Peter Alexander, Dennis Hopper, Llyn Foulkes, Astrid Preston, Dan McCleary and Don Bachardy. Sharing the poet Gary Snyder’s belief that, “our place is part of what we are,” the gallery is characterized by “place oriented” work, that which demonstrates a relationship between the artist and their environment or cultural milieu. Curatorial efforts reflecting this interest included, “Photographing the L.A. Art Scene: 1955-1975,” which explored that seminal period in L.A. art history. The gallery has also re-introduced artists such as photographer Charles Brittin, an important chronicler of the Beat Generation and along with Walter Hopps, produced the first catalogue of Mr. Brittin’s work.

drkrm was founded by John Matkowsky who has a twenty-five year reputation as a fine art black and white printer in Los Angeles.

Curtis and, most recently, Ansel Adams.

John formed drkrm in 2005 where he continues the tradition of fine art printing. drkrm is a black & white lab dedicated to the highest quality of hand processing and fine printing, specializing in traditional, silver-gelatin printing and film processing nearly lost in today’s digital age.

The drkrm gallery specializes in documentary and photo-journalistic work, cutting edge and alternative photographic processes and the display and survey of popular cultural images both current or historic. For the past 6 years drkrm has presented a superb and continuous array of exceptional exhibits, specializing in more under-the-radar, counterculture presentations. As curator, Matkowsky has never been afraid of unspoken issues; some shows were immensely stimulating while profoundly poignant, others were compelling, powerful, heart-rending, and even transforming in their relevance.

Works of all mediums are featured. Our visual arts programming may also be accompanied by performances, music, dance or culinary arts.

Located in the historic Miracle Mile district of Los Angeles, the hardware store was born in 1979 when Liz happened upon a 4000 square foot warehouse in Chicago filled to the brim with objects culled by a local picker from garage sales, abandoned buildings, and flea markets. Liz purchased the contents, and with her keen eye set to work organizing the haphazard menagerie into a successful wholesale hardware department store. In 1992 the business relocated to Los Angeles, where Liz’s Antique Hardware remains a staple for the Southern California antique and interior design community. Like an artist in residence, Liz lived above her store for 12 years. In 2004, she bought a home, and the loft evolved into its current incarnation as a creative hotspot. The New York style loft space features artists from around the world and embraces works of all mediums. Combining incredible art and live events, the Loft is one of L.A.’s best secrets attracting visitors from across the globe. Like Liz’s Hardware, the Loft will always be a treasure trove – a place to find exquisite works of art, vintage curiosities and design objects.

Think Tank Gallery began as Think Tank Collective back in June of 2010, when four of their five founding members left the Brewery art colony to begin sculpting out their dream vision of what an artistic space could be. They came upon the 7,500 sq ft space of a former fabric storage company, floating right above the bustling and historic fashion district of Los Angeles. With no electricity, no hot water, and living in tents, they started tearing down the yellowed walls and replacing them with pristine gallery-aesthetic new ones – with no idea where they were headed.

YellowKorner was created in 2006 by two friends, Alexandre de Metz and Paul-Antoine Briat, both lovers of photography from a young age. The YellowKorner concept is very simple: to introduce the greatest photographers from all over the world and to increase the number of copies of their work to make it accessible to as many collectors as possible. So, instead of offering 10 prints at £5,000, YellowKorner chooses to publish 500 at £100. With galleries in Europe and in the United States, YellowKorner presents a wide panorama of contemporary photography worldwide. Each of the galleries responds to the primary demand of YellowKorner's founders: to make these exhibition spaces a place for the public and artists to meet and exchange ideas, places of culture. To do this, the galleries organise events, previews where photographers and celebrities come in the spirit of sharing, lessons so that the public can discover photographic art.

The Gray Loft Gallery was founded by Jan Watten in 2012 when she seized the opportunity to create a gallery in her airy Jingletown loft.

We believe that Art is a wonderful vehicle for communication, community building and inspiration; and hope to get the general public interested in the arts by presenting work in a non-exclusive, welcoming, professional and fun environment. We hope to cultivate the belief that art is for everyone, and that art belongs in our community at large, not just in traditional gallery and museum environments.

For the past four decades Connie and Stephen Wirtz have developed the careers of some of the most celebrated Bay Area artists. Together they have pioneered the work of fine art photography at a time when photography was still a marginalized art form, supporting such groundbreaking work as the 1978 exhibition, “L. Moholy = Nagg.” Over the years they opened their gallery to a range of emerging and accomplished contemporary artists, featuring such international artists as Arnaldo Pomodoro, Richard Avedon and Magdalena Abakanowicz, as well as cultivating the early careers of such California-based artists as Larry Sultan, Jim Goldberg, Todd Hido, Deborah Oropallo, and Marc Katano.

The origin of Viewpoint Photographic Art Center (formerly Sacramento Valley Photographic Art Center) dates back to the early 1980s, when Jeff Redman and Jim Galvin opened Lightwork, a camera store on 57th Street in Sacramento. Shortly after the store's opening, a small gallery was added. The gallery was not an afterthought but an integral part of the plan for the store, a way for the owners to "give back" to photography.

Since Viewpoint Gallery opened in 1992, there has been a continuous schedule of exhibits and events. The range of styles and techniques displayed in the exhibits has spanned the photographic spectrum: traditional silver black-and-white and color processes; alternative approaches such as pinhole, Polaroid manipulation, and platinum prints; candid images taken by members of the Sacramento Boys & Girls Club with disposable cameras; and the works of well-known photographers such as Ansel Adams, Ruth Bernhard, Roy DeCarava, Imogen Cunningham, John Sexton, and Marion Post Wolcott. Reflecting and recognizing the new facets of photography, digital images have been more frequently represented in Viewpoint's exhibits as well as traditional disciplines.

Since 1979, Fraenkel Gallery has presented almost 300 exhibitions exploring photography and its relation to other arts. The exhibitions have spanned the medium’s history, from its early masters to present day. The gallery’s earliest exhibitions investigated the work of Carleton Watkins, Lee Friedlander, and NASA’s lunar photographs, and these set a tone and pattern for what followed. Because photography’s brief history lends itself to examination backward, forward, and sideways in time, the gallery has presented exhibitions by artists as diverse as Walker Evans, Eugene Atget, Edward Weston, Diane Arbus, the Bechers, Adam Fuss, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and Sol LeWitt. The gallery represents the estates of Garry Winogrand, Ralph Eugene Meatyard and is a primary representative for the work of Diane Arbus, Robert Adams, Lee Friedlander, Adam Fuss, Katy Grannan, Richard Learoyd, Richard Misrach, Nicholas Nixon, and Hiroshi Sugimoto.

In addition to its museum-quality exhibitions, the gallery has maintained a vigorous publishing program including numerous monographs and exhibition catalogues. In exhibitions such as Open Secrets, Dust Breeding, Not Exactly Photographs, and Nothing and Everything, Fraenkel Gallery has brought together work across media, juxtaposing photographs with paintings, drawings, and sculpture. The gallery maintains long-established relationships with museums, private collectors, and corporations around the world, and welcomes the experienced collector as well as those beginning to consider collecting photographic art.

The Galerie Maeght opened its doors in Paris on December 6, 1945 with an exhibition of drawings Henri Matisse had made during the war, and immediately became the epicenter for modernist artists and writers. Aimé Maeght, the gallery’s founder and a publisher of limited-edition artist books, began his art career in the South of France with his wife Marguerite. The Maeghts had an unparalleled eye for quality, combined with skill for nurturing and promoting new art and artists. These essential qualities secured their position as respected and influential advocates for art of their time. From 1946 onwards, such artists as Bonnard, Braque, Calder, Giacometti, Léger, Rouault among many others became part of the gallery. Seminal exhibitions such as “ Le Surréalisme” curated by André Breton and Marcel Duchamp in 1947 changed the course of art-history and exhibition-making. In June 2014, the Maeght Foundation in St. Paul de Vence, founded by Marguerite and Aimé Maeght in 1964, and now entrusted to their son Adrien Maeght and his children, celebrated its 50th anniversary showcasing its world-renowned collection which includes some of the most important oeuvres of European Modernists. Jules Maeght, Adrien’s son, a specialist of art editions and publications, opens his first gallery in San Francisco. Pioneering and exploring new vistas, Jules Maeght continues the Maeght family legacy of passion, adventure, and a commitment to artists and creative experimentation in the new Hayes Valley San Francisco gallery. Along with his partner and wife Amelie, the next Maeght generation will work to combine modernist artists alongside contemporary Bay-Area and international artists with provocative and engaging new exhibitions and programs.

Founded in 1979, Modernism has since presented more than 350 exhibitions, both historical and contemporary, in media ranging from painting to photography, sculpture to performance, by an international roster of artists.
Throughout its 34 years, owner Martin Muller has striven to keep the gallery's challenging, museum quality program at the forefront of the art world.
Early landmarks included being the first gallery to show Andy Warhol in the Bay Area (1982), and holding the first exhibition on the West Coast (in a gallery or museum) of the Russian Avant-Garde 1910-1930 (1980, 17 more retrospectives have since been mounted).
In the 1990s Modernism highlighted its strong abstract program with the exhibition of "Four Abstract Classicists" (1993), a recreation of the show presented by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 1959, while at the same time introducing America to the confrontational, and ofttimes disturbing, conceptual works of Austrian born artist Gottfried Helnwein (1992).
Next year Modernism will celebrate its 35th anniversary, and with it many more firsts of recent years, including the first major exhibition of the works of Le Corbusier on the West Coast(2003), and in 2006, the first major retrospective in the U.S. of the paintings, drawing, collages, and photographs of Erwin Blumenfeld.

Since its inception in 1974, the Rena Bransten Gallery has sought to define its artistic program by including, simultaneously, established and emerging artists. Originally focusing on ceramic sculpture by California artists, the physical gallery space and scope of exhibitions expanded to include contemporary paintings, sculpture, photography, media arts, video, installation, and conceptual work. Now, over thirty years later, the gallery continues to exhibit both national and international contemporary artists in one person and thematic exhibitions reflecting current art trends. In 2014, the gallery relocated from 77 Geary Street, where it had been located for 27 years, to a project-oriented space. Re-opening as Rena Bransten Projects, the focus of the program will shift to site-specific installations and explorations of non-traditional exhibition models.

Established in 1979, The Robert Koch Gallery exhibits and offers a wide range of exemplary photography that spans the history of the medium from the 19th century to the present. Our extensive inventory emphasizes contemporary photography, Modernist and experimental work from the 1920s and 1930s, and 19th century photography. From inception, our mission has been to help define and participate in the evolving understanding of the history of photography.

We actively seek out and exhibit significant new artists and promote lesser-researched frontiers in the history of the medium, while offering the finest examples by established masters of photography. Our contemporary program is shaped by a desire to build the dialogue around significant social, environmental, and aesthetic issues of our time, an aim that is shared by many of the gallery’s artists. We participate in several art fairs internationally, and have published monographs cataloging the works of our artists and holdings.

Themes + Projects began as Modernbook Gallery in November 1999. In the early days, we focused on carrying art books that were not readily available at the big chain books shops. As time passed, we began to show artwork by local artists and our concept shifted into an art gallery/bookstore hybrid. In 2010, Modernbook relocated from Palo Alto to the historic 49 Geary art building in San Francisco. By this time our business model had changed to full time gallery and book publisher. In spring of 2015, Modernbook re-branded to Themes + Projects. We are very excited to announce that Themes + Projects is now located inside San Francisco's newest art center, the Minnesota Street Project in the Dogpatch neighborhood.

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts was founded in 1993 out of an expressed need for an accessible, high-profile San Francisco venue devoted to contemporary visual art, performance, and film/video representing diverse cultural and artistic perspectives. Distinguished by its support for contemporary artists from around the world, YBCA is also recognized for the important role the organization plays in the San Francisco Bay Area arts ecology and in the community at large.
Artistically, YBCA is decidedly “cutting edge,” presenting and exhibiting work by artists who are pushing the boundaries of their art in form and/or content. With fierce determination, YBCA supports artists’ adventuring, recognizing the risk involved in such an approach. There are only a few multi-disciplinary contemporary arts centers like YBCA anywhere in the United States. Within that cohort, with whom YBCA regularly collaborates, YBCA is a leader for its organizational stability as well as its programmatic adventurousness. This combination makes YBCA an important player in the national arts scene.

Sylvia White entered the Los Angeles art scene in 1979, as founder and director of Contemporary Artists' Services. For over 30 years, she has been known and respected as a pioneer in the field of career management for visual artists. ArtAdvice.com was launched in 1998, when the internet was still in its infancy. (If you really want to have fun, check us out in the Way Way Back Machine) Since then, she has represented a handful of artists, who rely on her wisdom and experience to place their work in galleries and exhibitions. Collectors look to her to help advise them in obtaining museum quality art, or to help with de-acquisition. She has had exhibition spaces on both coasts and is now located in Ventura, California, a sleepy beach town between Malibu and Santa Barbara. As the first established art gallery to make the move from Santa Monica to Ventura, White is committed to bringing museum quality work to the Ventura county area, continuing her role as a pioneer.
