The Annex Galleries was established in 1971 in Santa Rosa, California. The Annex Galleries is primarily a secondary market, salon style gallery which specializes in 19th and 20th century American, European, Hispanic and Asian Fine Prints, which includes etchings, woodcuts, lithographs and screenprints, all created as original works of art and not reproducing an existing work in another medium. Our focus is broad: American color woodcut, Arts and Crafts prints, WPA prints, Modernist and Abstract Expressionist prints from the 1940s through 1960s, prints created at Atelier 17 in New York and Paris, and California prints and printmakers. Our inventory, assembled over a period of forty years, consists of over 6000 works, most of which are available on our website, which is changed daily.
The gallery is a member of the International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA) and participates in a number of Fine Print Fairs and art fairs throughout the US, as well as organizing special exhibitions in the gallery and on our website. Our website, www.annexgalleries.com, has been active for nearly 15 years and features nearly 6000 works of art and is changed daily.
The Annex Galleries has been the representative for the Gustave Baumann estate since 1974. The gallery also represents the prints from the estates of Anders Aldrin, Fred Becker, Dorr Bothwell, Edmond Casarella, Bernard Childs, Leonard Edmondson, Seong Moy, Augusta Rathbone, William S. Rice, James D. Smillie and others.
The gallery's recent focus is an on-line sales inventory that is in the tradition of the 19th & 20th century print galleries, such as Associated American Artists, Roten Galleries, and so many others that no longer exist. We offer a broad range of work by hundreds of known and rediscovered printmakers, a broad range of techniques, imagery and prices.
Our website (www.annexgalleries.com) offers a new collector a number of images to compare or just study. We try to add as much information as we know and are adding biographies for many of the rediscoverred artists weekly
The gallery hours are Monday through Saturday, 9:00 to 5:00 PM, at other times by appointment.
