Established in 1987, Haines Gallery has consistently maintained a dynamic position within an ever-evolving contemporary art discourse. Dedicated to providing a platform for emerging and internationally established artists from the United States, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, the exhibition program encourages diverse practices with a predisposition conceptual engagement with the descriptors of place.
Employing a highly individualistic curatorial stance, Haines Gallery has often been early to identify and support artists who have achieved critical acclaim over time. Examples of this vision are our significant US relationship with artists such as Andy Goldsworthy, Ai Weiwei, Monir Farmanfarmaian, Zhan Wang and James Turrell.
This commitment has resulted in lengthy and highly rewarding collaborations with our represented artists as evidenced by the significant exhibitions and acquisitions the gallery has facilitated with major institutions internationally.
The Gallery is a member of the Art Dealers’ Association of America and San Francisco Art Dealers Association. Gallery President Cheryl Haines serves on the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco Advisory Board and is a founding director of the Asian Contemporary Arts Consortium, Northern California.
Parallel to the gallery program, Cheryl Haines established the FOR-SITE Foundation in 2003, a non-profit artist-in-residency and education program dedicated to the creation of art about place.
