Art collectors, enthusiasts, and zealots are freaking out in preparation for the fourth iteration of Art Market San Francisco, the Bay Area's largest contemporary and modern art fair. The four-day event features drool-worthy pieces to purchase from over 70 international galleries and artists, including many local favorites like Ever Gold Gallery, Romer Young Gallery, and Toomey Tourell Fine Art. The event also includes a charity auction to benefit Bay Area arts organizations, and an Opening Night Preview Reception. Keep in mind that this is an organization with impeccable taste — so it'll throw a bangin' preliminary night party. Not only that, but last year's opening reception raised $40,000 for the New Acquisitions Fund for the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. In other words, we owe a big thanks to the Art Market for many of the pieces that we've been able to enjoy this year.
