About our Partners:

Union Square Alliance is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the vitality of the Union Square area by supporting diverse artistic, cultural, and culinary programs and projects – and by cultivating a welcoming, caring community for all humankind. Union Square is the vibrant heart of San Francisco and an international destination where visitors come to enjoy exceptional retail experiences, luxury hotels, world-class cultural institutions, and great public spaces found only in the City by the Bay. A lively 27-block community surrounding Union Square Park in the heart of San Francisco makes up the Union Square Alliance. For more information on the Alliance, please visit

We are so thrilled to have 8 Union Square galleries participating in Art Market San Francisco and encourage our guests to visit the area and discover all it has to offer! Galleries include CK Contemporary, Scott Richards Contemporary Art, Caldwell Snyder Gallery, Hang Art, Christopher-Clark Fine Art, Maybaum Gallery, Sin Titúlo, & K. Imperial Fine Art.

CK Contemporary represents the very best in contemporary American and European artists working across a broad range of styles and media. While realism and representational art has long been the focus of the gallery, we continue to showcase artists whose distinct points of view set them apart within genres as far ranging as abstraction to still life. In addition to its roster of contemporary artists, CKC has developed a number of artist estates, primarily of mid-century American painters. Located in San Francisco’s historic Union Square, CK Contemporary is committed to new and experienced collectors who desire a skillful steward in the acquisition of paintings, drawings and sculpture that are both timeless and unique.

Bluestem Restaurant & Market is a spirited gathering place created to foster connection, and serve people for how we eat and drink today; on the go, in the moment or somewhere in between. Our California coastal fare marries the vibrant bounty of ingredients native to Northern California, with the diverse cultural influences of the many immigrant groups who continue to plant roots in the region.

Set in the heart of Union Square, San Francisco ENO Wine Bar and Merchant is a casual wine bar and retailer of fine wine for those seeking a new adventure in wine. With a diverse selection of wine by the glass/bottle for here or to-go, ENO will enhance and entice your taste for the city’s abundant wine offerings. Excite your thirst for something new with an easygoing evening with friends or loved ones. Here at ENO, first-time sippers and worldly wine travelers alike are welcome to swirl, savor and sip their way to a relaxing experience in the very center of the City by the Bay.

Subtle Spirits is a contemporary independent bottling brand pairing each release with original label art. There is nothing subtle about our spirit, and from the beginning, we knew we had to do it differently. Our spirits aren’t intended to be categorized, they are meant to be experienced. With each release, we capture a place in time, dynamic like the artist whose work is featured on the bottle. Each one is personal to us because they represent real moments or ideas in our life, our story unfolding in real-time.
