Founded by Oliver Caldwell and Susan Snyder in San Francisco in 1983, Caldwell Snyder Gallery has grown from its early roots in the South of Market district and now has two locations: Sutter Street in San Francisco’s Union Square district, and downtown St. Helena, Napa Valley, in the turn-of-the-century Star Building. The gallery features a combined 12,000 square feet of exhibition space with shows rotating monthly.
Going into its fourth decade, the gallery will continue its dynamic program, remaining responsive to new art and ways of communicating with the public, while maintaining the strong identity and aesthetic base that has marked its success for 35 years. “Art audiences today are inundated with imagery,” Caldwell says. “Collectors have seen a million landscapes, abstract works, and figures. The challenge is to be a distinctive and meaningful voice.”
