Founded in 1972, the San Francisco Art Dealers Association (SFADA) seeks to promote the highest standards of connoisseurship, scholarship and ethical practice within the gallery community.

SFADA contributes to the advancement of fine art in the San Francisco Bay Area by investing in the professional development of its members and forging relationships with both public and private organizations. Our members’ exhibitions and collections feature a range of works across media from the historic to the contemporary, including sculpture, painting, works on paper, textiles, video, film and installations. We present work by emerging and midcareer artists as well as early, modern and contemporary masters.

SFADA is a business-to-business trade association that gives members the opportunity to share insights with other gallery owners on current issues in the business of art. In the past few years, SFADA has hosted private receptions for incoming directors and curators of SFMOMA, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and YBCA — as well as organizing curator-led tours at several local museums — giving gallerists the opportunity to make important, personal connections with museum professionals and others in the Bay Area art scene.

SFADA also hosts informative and informal discussions among members on various topics, which give gallerists the opportunity to stay current on best business practices, share experiences, and learn from each other.

Membership is by invitation only. To learn more about SFADA membership and associated benefits, please click here.
