If you’re in need of weekend plans, consider heading out to SF’s Fort Mason Center for the Superfine Art Fair happening from March 23-26, 2023 in Gallery 308. The vibrant event will showcase 60 creators including local, national, and international artists. It’s a chance to browse hundreds of works in a grand gallery space and purchase original pieces for a steal.
Guests can check out the Superfine Art Fair on Thursday, March 23 from 6-10pm (VIP Preview); Friday, March 24 from 4pm-9pm; Saturday, March 25 from 12pm-9pm; and Sunday, March 26 from 12pm-8pm. General access tickets cost $18.
Fort Mason Center’s Gallery 308 will be filled with dozens of hand-picked artists presenting multimedia experiences and dynamic live art, among other things. The fair is typically more suited to younger art lovers, working to prioritize inclusivity for both creators and guests. As such, Superfine has grown to be the #1 platform for independent artists, and now hosts the fair at 12 locations across the U.S. We’re thrilled to see it here in SF this weekend, but rest assured they’ll be back again soon (save the date for Nov. 16-19).
90% of the artworks on sale range in price from $100-3,000 and 100% of art sales go right back to the artist you purchase from. Superfine takes zero commission from purchased works and the prices are more affordable than you’ll find at conventional art fairs.
“Superfine isn’t a traditional art fair,” writes Forbes. “Founded on the principles of inclusivity and bringing art to communities who are often unwelcome or marginalized in the art world, the fairs are themed to be inclusive and fun for everyone.”
The fair typically sells out, so it’s worth purchasing your ticket ASAP in order to enjoy Superfine Art Fair this weekend. General access tickets available for $18, which will get you one-time access to the fair on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.
You can also purchase a private access ticket for $50, which gets you into the Thursday opening night party with free bubbly, a free drink at the VIP-only mixer on Friday Mar. 24 (happening from 9-11pm at the Alton Hotel), a complimentary tote, and re-admission to the fair on any of the general access days.
Finally, if you make it to the fair on Friday, Mar. 24, you’ll have a chance to hear a live episode of Superfine’s podcast The Artist Business Plan from 5-6pm.
“You’ll find the most cutting-edge emerging visual artists at Superfine, ready and excited to talk to you about their art, and price points friendly to collectors at every stage,” write Superfine co-founders Alex Mitow & James Miille on their website. “Whether you’ve got a museum with your name on it or never bought a piece of original art in your life, you’ll find something at Superfine to take home and cherish for years to come.”
After its stop in San Francisco this weekend, Superfine Art Fair will head to Savannah, Seattle, NYC, LA, and Washington, D.C. before returning to SF in November. Learn more about Superfine’s mission and 2023 tour at their website.
