About Gary Francis Fine Art


Gary Francis Fine Art specializes in primary market contemporary art, with a focus on San Francisco Bay Area emerging and mid-career artists. In addition to exhibitions, we provide valuation and consulting services to help new and established collectors of any age, who are interested in creating or enhancing a personal collection.

A Dream Comes True

Gary Francis Fine Art opened in October 2013 with a retail gallery space located on historic Park Street, the vibrant commercial, civic, and cultural center of Alameda, California. Over the course of the year, the Gallery held 10 fine art exhibitions of original, fine art in a wide variety of mediums and styles by local Bay Area artists. We introduced new and returning visitors to a refreshing array of contemporary, local art to view and purchase. Two dimensional visual art such as paintings, prints and works on paper formed the core of the exhibitions accompanied by fine art ceramics, glass, sculpture, mixed-media, assemblage, fine silver jewelry, hand-crafted furniture, and distinctive objects of fine art.

The Gallery successfully connected with and educated new as well as seasoned art enthusiasts and buyers; contributed to the growth and development of the Park Street cultural and business district; and delivered on the goal of mounting well-conceived and well-executed monthly exhibitions showcasing high-quality fine art by local Bay Area artists.


Future Plans

Gary Francis Fine Art will continue to build on its accomplishments. In keeping with our goal to showcase local fine art, we want to expand our exhibition schedule throughout the Bay Area by adding new venues and business partners to exhibit art. Starting November 1, 2014, we will no longer operate a retail space on Park Street location in Alameda. We are excited about presenting future exhibitions in gallery spaces around The Bay! We will continue to showcase high-caliber, interesting, beautiful and affordable art by local Bay Area artists on our website.

Consistent with our passion for fine art print editions and unique works on paper such as book arts and collage, we are eager to develop our publishing arm: printmaking publisher of fine art print editions. We will collaborate with local artists working in a variety of mediums to create print editions of woodcuts/linocuts and etchings of original artworks. In the coming months, a new Print Editions section will be added to the website. Read about Prints
