Art exchange LLC
Founded in 1983 by Theron Kabrich and James Hartley, San Francisco Art Exchange, LLC - "The Gallery of the Popular Image" - is a world leader and pioneer in the representation and sale of museum-quality fine-art limited edition prints, original art, and important photographs. We specialize in iconic people, events, and imagery from popular culture, rock 'n' roll, jazz & country music, film, sports, advertising, and history.
Along with being the primary gallery for the work of legendary pin-up artist Alberto Vargas, SFAE also represents original and limited edition artwork by album cover artists Roger Dean and Hipgnosis founders Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey Powell, painter and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame musician Ronnie Wood, the art of both John Lennon and Ringo Starr, and over 100 major photographers from music and pop culture.
SFAE has been responsible for many "firsts" in the art world including the sale of the one-of-a-kind original artwork for over a dozen iconic album covers. We have hosted several private concerts featuring GRAMMY® winning musicians including Brian Wilson and Graham Nash, and speaking engagements with writers and prominent figures such as Clarence Jones, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's longtime friend, attorney and speech-writer.
We specialize in unique and rare artifacts as well as vintage pieces from the personal collections of prominent artists and individuals in the entertainment business.
