What Makes this event different?

We are the only contemporary hotel art fair for artists, run by artists.

Call to artists from stARTup Art Fair

stARTup Art Fair San Francisco is a contemporary art fair for independent artists.

This is a three-day fair in April from the 24th-26th, 2020 at the fun and retro Hotel del Sol. The hotel is within walking distance from the nearby SF Art Market gallery fair. Exhibiting artists have an opportunity to expose new work to a myriad of collectors, gallerists, curators, art consultants, and writers who will be coming to the city for a weekend of contemporary art.

The core mission of stARTup Art Fair is to provide a marketplace that gives artists the power to present and sell work on their own terms.

The application deadline is February 9th, 2020. Artists selected from the open application process will each take over a hotel room for the course of three days to present a solo show of their work. Applicants will have their work reviewed by an impressive Selection Committee of art world professionals:

Andrew Rafacz, Owner Director, Andrew Rafacz Gallery, Chicago

Michelle Nye, Director, SFMOMA Artists Gallery, San Francisco

René de Guzman, Senior Curator of Art, Oakland Museum of California

Danielle Fox, Owner/Director, Slate Contemporary Gallery, Oakland
