Founded in 2005, Mark Wolfe Contemporary exhibits emerging and mid-career artists working in all media, with a focus on California painters. The gallery's mission is to introduce works that compel viewers to adopt new modes of observing, processing, and decoding visual information that shape the ways they perceive and respond to the world around them. We take great pride in having mounted the first-ever shows of several now-established artists from across the US, Europe, and China, and in having introduced Bay Area artists to new audiences at art fairs in Miami, New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. 

The gallery's artists have garnered critical praise in local and national publications and media, including art ltd, Artweek, KQED Public Television, New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco, 7 x 7, S.F. Weekly, S.F. Bay Guardian, Flash Art, and Village Voice, and have exhibited at the Oakland Museum, the Civic Gallery of Milan, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and numerous other venues. 

Wolfe Contemporary was the subject of the 2009 PBS Documentary "Seeking Art in Shanghai," which followed a scouting trip to China and subsequent group exhibition at the gallery.
