A Harvard Business School graduate with a career in fashion and merchandising under her belt, Stephanie Breitbard made waves in 2007 when she merged her passion for artwork and interiors to establish Stephanie Breitbard Fine Arts, a gallery and art consultancy firm. In November, Stephanie teamed up with partner Evie Simon and opened a new home for the gallery in San Francisco’s vibrant Jackson Square neighborhood. A design collaboration between Sutro Architects and Elizabeth Cooper Interior Design, the newly minted Simon Breitbard Fine Arts translates more as a sophisticated, modern home than a gallery. Below we’ve shared our top five reasons by SBFA is one of our favorite Bay Area art destinations.
1. Rather than exhibit one artist at a time, Simon Brietbard Fine Arts showcases work from over 100 local, national and international artists in a rotating group show. The gallery’s selection, which functions more as an art showroom, changes weekly so there’s always something for everyone.
2. SBFA doesn’t have a single white wall. Instead, partner Evie Simon and interior designer Elizabeth Cooper worked together to curate a one-of-a-kind, salon style space that highlights a mix of vintage and custom furniture, light fixtures, and home accessories. This enables clients to better imagine what the artwork would look like in their own home.
3. Evie and Stephanie are committed to offering personalized, relationship-based services. SBFA is only open by appointment to ensure that each guest has a personalized experience tailored to their individualized needs.
4. SBFA’s art consultancy services include on-site visits to the client’s residence, Photoshop mockups of art options, and installation coordination. “We’re curating a home to be a reflection of a client’s art tastes, personality, and how they want their space to look,” says Stephanie.
5. SBFA’s offerings are accessible and intended for anyone from a first-time collector to someone with an established art collection. The gallery offers work of various price points and media with a focus on painting and sculpture.
Simon Breitbard Fine Arts is located at 843 Montgomery Street, San Francisco, CA 94133 and is open by appointment only. To learn more about SBFA’s artists or to book an appointment, please visit their website.
