About Us

The Annex Galleries was established in 1971 in Santa Rosa, California, in the heart of Sonoma County's beautiful wine country. The Annex Galleries is primarily a secondary-market, salon-style gallery specializing in 19th and 20th century American, European, Hispanic, and Asian original fine prints. This includes metal plate etchings, woodcuts, lithographs, screenprints, and monotypes. Additionally, we carry a smaller selection of paintings, drawings, and sculpture. Our genre focus is broad: American 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, updated 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. We also organize special exhibitions in the gallery and on our website.

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.

Since the gallery's 2001 online debut, it has also established itself as a resource for collectors and enthusiasts of fine prints. In addition to carrying more recognized artists, it has been the goal of the Annex to discover the artists behind obscure works and to present as accurate a representation of each artist as possible, using today's methods of online research in combination with our own library of catalog rainsonnes, auction catalogs, and monographs.

With an ever-expanding and extremely diverse inventory, there is something for both the experienced collector and the new.

Our hours are Monday through Saturday, 9:00 to 5:00 PM, at other times by appointment.
