The fledgling San Francisco art market is gearing up for a rumble in the art jungle this weekend, as no fewer than three art fairs go head to head in the City by the Bay. The San Francisco Fine Art Fair, May 19-22, 2011, in its second year at Fort Mason Center, received mixed reviews in its inaugural outing last year. Hamptons Expo Group president Rick Friedman, who also produces ArtAspen in the Colorado resort town -- his hottest fair -- as well as the five-year-old ArtHamptons and a new fair in Houston, is giving it a second try with a roster this year of some 60 exhibitors, including Ace, Gerald Peters and Sundaram Tagore, plus a handful of San Francisco galleries, Caldwell Snyder and Scott Nichols Gallery among them. The vernissage is May 19; general admission is $15 if bought online, or $20 at the fair.
