Catharine Clark is the founder of Catharine Clark Gallery, San Francisco, established in 1991. She represents artists working across media and programs a dedicated media room in conjunction with each exhibit. Catharine Clark Gallery is the only gallery in San Francisco to have a space in which media work is screened or programmed on a regular and on-going basis. In 2015, she founded Box Blur—an initiative at the gallery that engages visual, performing, and/or time-based works in dialogue. Box Blur is fiscally sponsored by Dance Film SF, with whom the gallery collaborates annually to screen films in the experimental category as part of the annual SF Dance Film Festival.
Catharine is a trustee for the Northern California Advocacy Group for the National Museum of Women in the Arts and has served on the advisory boards of San Francisco Arts Education Project, and as a trustee for ZER01, Recology, and SF Camerawork. In 2014, Catharine was honored with Arttable’s Northern California Chapter's Award of Service to the Visual Arts and in 2017, she was recognized by Access Institute for her dedication to the arts


Todd Hosfelt founded Hosfelt Gallery in 1996 and represents an international roster of artists whose work is grounded in a broad understanding of history — visual, cultural, political and social. He has built a program around artwork with a refined level of execution that offers new perspectives on critical discourses in contemporary art, culture, and politics.  Over the course of more than twenty years, Hosfelt has distinguished his gallery through the introduction of exceptional new artists from around the world, the intellectual rigor of the gallery’s programming, its role in nurturing the careers of now internationally-renowned artists, a commitment to showing work that may not align with current trends, and representation of some of the most important artists of the Bay Area and beyond. In 2015 Hosfelt founded the first Digital Media Conservation Lab to address the growing need for the preservation of digital and electronic art. Hosfelt Gallery is a member of the Art Dealers Association of America.

Her collection exhibitions include Almost Human: Digital Art from the Permanent Collection (2019) and Louise Nevelson: The Fourth Dimension (2017). She is author of the forthcoming digital publication, 50x50 (2020) featuring fifty artists in SJMA’s collection. Prior to SJMA, she worked at the Kramlich Collection, San Francisco; the Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco; and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis.
