From its global headquarters in San Francisco, Gallery Wendi Norris represents modern and contemporary artists working in a variety of media around the world. The gallery specializes in re-contextualizing the work of modern artists while providing connections to contemporary art, artists, and culture, and works continuously to ensure gallery artists are represented in important museums, private collections, top-tier art fairs, publications, and biennials around the world.
Active on both the local and international stages, Gallery Wendi Norris mounts exhibitions where they are most relevant, and also works with individual collectors and museums in both the primary and secondary markets. Founded with an emphasis on scholarship and education, the gallery produces highly researched exhibitions and catalogues, sponsors artist talks, hosts visiting academics, and engages in public art projects.
The gallery is often associated with the work of Latin American Surrealists, including Leonora Carrington and Remedios Varo. The roster is wide-ranging, incorporating modern artists such as Dorothea Tanning, Wolfgang Paalen, and Alice Rahon, with contemporary artists such as Chitra Ganesh, María Magdalena Campos-Pons, Julio César Morales, Eva Schlegel, Peter Young, and Ambreen Butt.
Norris and her team have been integral in placing her artists in major collections and exhibitions, including The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Tate Modern, the Metropolitan Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and many others.
Norris is on the Board of the Art Dealers Association of America and has served as the San Francisco Art Dealers Association President.
