The San Francisco Fine Art Fair (SFFAF) returns for a third year in 2012 as one of the highlights in the Bay Area for contemporary art. In 2011, a rousing 16,500 art enthusiasts lined up and streamed through the fair. There was a bursting energy in the air and contagious enthusiasm as attendees were stunned, entertained and amazed by a wide spectrum of high-caliber fine art displayed by the 73 exhibiting galleries. The well-designed and spacious exhibit floor show cased scores of breath-taking installations, thought-provoking live performances, spectacular indoor and outdoor sculptures, memorable photography, significant paintings and historically important works on paper.

As the pioneering and solo fair in 2010, SFFAF returned the glamor and prestige of an international fine art fair to San Francisco, after an eight-year absence. Its rousing success re-established the Bay Area as a well-earned stop on the national art fair circuit. Now with a two-year track record of producing 15,000+ sophisticated and knowledgeable acquisition-oriented fairgoers and generating $5-6+ million in annual sales, SFFAF has established itself as viable location for serious art commerce. Its success has inspired other fairs to jump in. With the 2012 event planned to be its most impactful to date, SFFAF will maintain the city's status as one of the most important art marketplaces in America — in the eyes of gallerists, collectors and the national art press.
