Brian Gross Fine Art is pleased to announce its 30th Anniversary Exhibition, a survey of artists and works exhibited by the gallery over the course of the last three decades. Although not a comprehensive overview, the exhibition includes a number of key artists and highlights from the important exhibitions in its history. The exhibition will be on view through August 29, 2020.
Founded in 1990, Brian Gross Fine Art began as a 500 square foot space located at 250 Sutter Street, near San Francisco’s Union Square, and initially focused on private sales of important Post-War American and California Art. The Gallery mounted its first exhibition of the work of Peter Alexander in 1991, and the exhibition schedule steadily grew. By the time the Gallery moved to a larger space on the fifth floor of the 49 Geary building in 1995, it was mounting eight shows a year. From these early shows onward, Brian Gross Fine Art developed the strong contemporary painting and sculpture program it is known for, while also featuring the important American Modernists Sam Francis, Karl Benjamin, and Richard Pousette-Dart.
In 2013, Brian Gross Fine Art left its Geary Street location after 18 years and expanded into its current home at 248 Utah Street in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill / Design District neighborhood. This new 4,000 square foot space has allowed the gallery to present a number of important exhibitions, including Roy De Forest: Let Sleeping Dogs Lie (2015), Robert Arneson: Guardians of the Secret II (2016), Ed Moses: LA — SAN FRANCISCO (2016), Leo Valledor: Color Space (2016), Robert Hudson: Selected Works 1968-71 (2018), and the critically acclaimed Dilexi Gallery: The Early Years (2019).
Today, Brian Gross Fine Art represents 23 artists and 6 artist estates through a robust schedule of exhibitions. Beyond its immediate gallery program, the Gallery has contributed to numerous outside exhibitions, including most recently Of Dogs and Other People: The Art of Roy De Forest (2017), the first full career retrospective for the artist, at the Oakland Museum of California, Meridel Rubenstein, Eden Turned on Its Side (2018) at the University of New Mexico Art Museum, Albuquerque, and Ridin’ the West: Works by Roy De Forest and Dana Hart-Stone (2019) at Santa Clara University.
