About Us

The Annex Galleries was established in 1971 in Santa Rosa, California, in the heart of Sonoma County's beautiful wine country. We're primarily a secondary-market, salon-style gallery specializing in the 19th, 20th and 21st century American, European, Latin American, and Asian original fine prints. Our inventory includes works in Intaglio (etching, engraving, aquatint, etc); Relief (woodcuts, linocuts, metal plate, etc.); Planographic works (stone and metal lithographs, etc.); Stencil (screenprints, pochoir, etc); Monotypes (monoprints, etc.); and Photography. Additionally, we carry a smaller selection of paintings, drawings, and sculpture.

Our genre focus is broad: American Arts and Crafts prints, WPA prints, TGP 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. We also have a selection of Old Master works. Over 7,000 works are available on our website, updated daily.

The Annex Galleries has been the representative for the Gustave Baumann estate since 1974 and gallery director Gala Chamberlain completed her book In A Modern Rendering The Color Woodcuts of Gustave Baumann: A Catalogue Raisonne, which was published by Rizzoli Electa, in September 2019. We also represent prints from the estates of Anders Aldrin, Dorr Bothwell, Edmond Casarella, Bernard Childs, Leonard Edmondson, Augusta Rathbone, William S. Rice, James D. Smillie and others. We also have large collections of prints by Max Pollak and Ian Hugo. We organize special exhibitions in the gallery and on our website, and are founding participants of OnPaper.art.

Since the gallery's 2001 online debut, it has become a resource for collectors, students, and enthusiasts of fine prints. In addition to carrying well-known artists, it has been the goal of the Annex to discover the artists behind obscure works and to present as accurate a representation of them as possible. We use today's methods of online research in combination with our own library of catalogue raisonnes, auction catalogs, and monographs. Starting in 2015 the gallery has published a Print of the Day!!, seven days a week, which features a different print from our inventory and provides a brief description with interesting facts on the work and its artist. These are sent out daily via e-mail, Facebook, LinkedIn and other social media. Interested parties can click here to be added to the email list.

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. If there is something in particular you'd like to see, call ahead and we will set it aside for you.

Owner: Daniel C. Lienau
Director: Gala Chamberlain
