Today, on December 1, Micaela Gallery redefined its format to a consultancy in modern and contemporary art, guiding clients with expertise and access throughout the international art community.
While announcing the departure from our practice at 49 Geary Street in San Francisco via this blog may seem rather quiet, the reality of our business is that our work is best done through continued successful collaborations with our colleagues, the expert advisors who assist us in the myriad questions that arise when developing a fine art collection, as well as the artists we work with. So that our only real change is one of a physical address to a virtual address.
Micaela Gallery is a boutique gallery focused on its representation of a small, select group of artists working in the USA and abroad. Collaborating with colleagues, our program features an interdisciplinary mix of mediums that includes video, sculpture and painting, along with an extensive Flat File set featuring a carefully curated selection of works on paper and illustrated catalogs published by gallery and non-gallery artists.
We grew from a very small, regional concern to one of the most recognized contemporary art galleries with special collections of sculpture, featuring many of the strongest talents in the San Francisco Bay Area, including David Gilhooly, Marvin Lipofsky, Pamina Traylor, and a host of wildly free-spirited local sculptors. Micaela Gallery presented the first Northern California exhibitions addressing contemporary fine art issues in the glass sculpture community, and was the first to introduce glass sculpture to the international fine art community during Art Basel Miami week in 2008. The gallery's exhibition program at art fairs includes SOFA Chicago, Bridge Art Fair New York and Miami, SCOPE Miami, SCOPE Basel, Los Angeles Art Show and the Affordable Art Fair New York.
Today, Micaela Gallery is independent of the traditional, physical gallery space, yet retains its presence in the fine art community through curated art exhibitions, exhibitions at international art fairs, publications, salons where select artists, critics and friends come together to enhance our social community, and of course, through the social network provided by the internet.
Micaela Gallery represents select collections of artwork by emerging and established international contemporary fine artists. The artwork in this collection is viewable on our website at micaela.com. If you are interested in acquiring a work from this collection, or would like more information about our program, please see our calendar, or contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your visit to our blog. I look forward to introducing you to our artists, their work, and, of course, to meeting you.
