Episode Summary

Union Square - January 2006
San Francisco's Union Square district is known as one of the city's shopping meccas, bordered by large department stores and fancy ultra-chic boutiques. The area is also considered one of the primary spots for commercial art. Sutter, Post, and Geary streets are filled with fine art galleries, some focus on selling works by modern masters like Picasso and Chagall, and others are devoted to promoting up-and-coming artists. In January 2006, we chose three diverse galleries known for representing contemporary painters. Heather Marx Gallery, Toomey Tourell Gallery and Dolby Chadwick Gallery emerged within a few years of each other and all have become well-respected commercial sites for art voyeurs of the "First Thursday" crowd and for serious collectors.moreless
