Pictures From a Fair: artMRKT 2014

artmrkt-112

This years San Francisco art fair was all consolidated into artMRKT at Fort Mason in SF. In past years the seasonal SF art fair consisted of three venues, the SF Art Fair, ArtPadSF and artMRKT. This year, only artMRKT remains as the premiere seasonal art event. Which makes the whole shebang much easier to navigate. Again, I am going to skip the captions due to the shear volume of pics. Enjoy!
