First Thursday

The San Francisco Art Dealers Association invites you to join us for “First Thursday,” a downtown tradition since 1993. On every first Thursday of the month, many of our member galleries remain open to welcome visitors after normal working hours, most until 7:30PM or later. Galleries in the DoReMi neighborhood (Dogpatch/Potrero Hill) are also open until 7PM.  In addition to ongoing SFADA Gallery Exhibitions, First Thursday events are listed on this page. If you are making a special trip to see a specific gallery, we recommend that you call first to confirm opening hours.
