Galleries and COVID-19: Taking precautions

Galleries and COVID-19: Taking precautions

Mar 13 — Aug 31, 2020

All SFADA galleries are honoring California’s “Shelter in place” orders.  Many are providing virtual visits and exhibitions on their websites and social media.  Check them out!

As of June 15, the City of San Francisco has entered Phase 2b of its re-opening timeline, allowing retail businesses to re-open with social distancing protocols.  Art galleries are opening gradually as the situation evolves.  Many are open by appointment only, and some are open for walk-ins.  Here’s a preliminary list:

Open for Walk-in’s (with social distancing):

  • Andrea Schwartz Gallery
  • Avenue 12 Gallery (call for hours)
  • Brian Gross Fine Art
  • Caldwell Snyder
  • Catharine Clark Gallery
  • SLATE contemporary (Saturdays only)

By Appointment Only:

  • Berggruen Gallery
  • Crown Point Press
  • Fraenkel Gallery
  • Johansson Projects
  • Krevsky Fine Art
  • Meyerovich Gallery
  • Modern Eden
  • Rena Bransten Gallery
  • Studio Gallery

We encourage you to visit online, email or call the gallerists and schedule in-person visits.  Go to our gallery list for links to all of our member galleries’ websites and our Exhibitions Page for current and planned exhibitions.

In the words of one local art dealer, “We are grateful for the chance to share [art]work with you and for the reminder that the humanizing power of art is as important as ever.”

Be safe, stay well, and make the most of this unusual time.
