Anthony Meier Fine Arts was established in 1984 as a private dealer in the secondary market. Working with both public and private collections, Anthony Meier built a highly regarded international reputation specializing in post-World War II contemporary masters.  In 1996 Anthony Meier Fine Arts opened a public gallery space in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco. In 2023 the gallery will open a new location in Mill Valley, California in a historic building downtown.

As a public forum, Anthony Meier mounts five or more exhibitions per year dedicated to emerging, mid-career and established artists. The work shown in the gallery is consistent with the quality and visual aesthetic on which the business was founded.

Anthony Meier is active both locally and globally, with membership in the Art Dealers Association of America and the San Francisco Art Dealers Association. Past and present participation in the major art fairs of the world has helped to merge our primary and secondary programs and present the gallery program as a cohesive progression, from post-war masterworks to contemporary artists working today. With our range and quality of work, the gallery inventory maintains a current and well-articulated profile in the art world at large.

Past Exhibitions

Kate Shepherd

Something About Shapes

April 7, 2023 - May 19, 2023
Anthony Meier is pleased to present "Something About Shapes", Kate Shepherd’s sixth solo exhibition at the gallery which will feature never-before-seen watercolors and large-scale wall paintings, all of which have been created in dialogue with their environment. On view from 7 April - 19 May 2023, this is the gallery’s second exhibition at its new flagship location in Mill Valley, California. As the first exhibition dedicated to Shepherd’s ongoing series of watercolors, "Something About Shapes" reflects the artist’s time-honored practice of geometrical abstraction that teases out subtle relationships between form and space which might otherwise remain overlooked. Her distinct visual lexicon, generated by superimposing a delicate matrix of chromatic fields to evoke the illusion of three-dimensionality, characterizes both bodies of work, the watercolors and wall drawings alike. Taking as their inspiration the trap doors found along city sidewalks and folding walls, the series of watercolors on view all reflect a certain architectural quality in their arrangement of overlapping and intersecting planes—alluding to stagnated movement and different points of view, exemplified by "Violet, Three Overlapping Planes #77" (2022), a door standing ajar, as in "Brown, Open Door with Plane, #65", (2022), or a wall partition bisecting an otherwise undelineated space, such as in "Black, Open Folded Wall, #43" (2022). The play of light and shadow that results from Shepherd’s delicate manipulation of color in these intimately-scaled monochromatic works share a certain kinship with the literal play of light and shadow that she engages in her large-scale wall paintings. Though similarly drawing upon the planar relationship as a sort of formal conceit, the wall paintings establish a far more direct spatial discourse, compelling a consideration of the viewer’s phenomenological relationship both inside and outside of the work. The viewer is engaged with a larger-than-life figural and gestural reference, suggesting both gravity and motion.

In the Shadow of Mt Tam

January 31, 2023 - March 17, 2023
On view from 31 January through 17 March 2023, "In the Shadow of Mt. Tam" will feature historic works by artists such as Etel Adnan, who spent a finite but critically important time in Marin County––and who eventually went on to establish themselves within the cannons of art history. Artists include Etel Adnan, JB Blunk, Jess Collins, Jay DeFeo, Robert Duncan, Gordon Onslow Ford, Luchita Hurtado, David Ireland, Lee Mullican, Bruce Nauman, Wolfgang Paalen, Barbara Stauffacher Solomon, Lawrence Weiner, William T. Wiley, and Rick Yoshimoto. The exhibition will thread together the allure of Marin’s distinctive natural environment and Mt. Tam itself, as well as the impact of community and place on these artist’s burgeoning practices. The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog featuring an essay by art historian Michael Auping.
