stARTup Small Works is the latest edition of stARTup Art Fair: a "tabletop" style art fair in an industrial warehouse setting for select contemporary artists to show small-scale works ranging from sculptures, paintings, and drawings, to prints and ceramics. With 2,500 square feet of original art in a relaxed and friendly space, visitors can connect directly with artists, take a lunch break in the outdoor lounge with food truck fair and other refreshments and, of course, take home some of the best art in the Bay Area today.

stARTup has become a destination event, attracting artists, art industry leaders, and art collectors from across the U.S. and as far away as Mexico, China, Europe, and South America. Our unwavering mission to support creative and professional success for independent artists makes us a beacon for starting and seasoned collectors who seek out unique experiences and original art work.

Celebrate today’s significant emerging talent and leading independent artists in San Francisco's trendy Dogpatch neighborhood. 1599 Tennessee Street is accessible from 280 freeway, the 3rd street Muni line, and within walking distance of Minnesota Street Project, McEvoy Foundation for the Arts, and the Museum of Craft and Design.

Third Street offers a mix of restaurants, brunch cafes, brew pubs and wine bars, plus the Museum of Craft and Design.

Street parking is readily available all throughout the neighborhood, especially at night and during the weekends. 1599 Tennessee Street is accessible from the Muni N line which stops at 3rd and 23rd Streets.
