This week, May 16-19, San Francisco will play host to a variety of galleries for the annual art fair ArtPadSF in the Phoenix Hotel. Each gallery is given a hotel room with a pool-side view to set up shop, and visitors can stroll from room to room to see what each art space has to offer. This year’s iteration of ArtPad is packed with special events, including a Tumblr Arts Summit, performances by Bay Area synchronized swim team Tsunami Synchro in the pool at the center of the hotel’s architecture, panels, tours, discussions and more. Some of the exhibiting galleries this year include Spoke Art, New Image Art, Gauntlet Gallery, moniquemeloche, Beta Pictorus Gallery and others. Take a look at a sneak peek of artwork below.
