Connie Wirtz continues the legacy of the Stephen Wirtz Gallery with Wirtz Art, an online gallery and art advisory based in Oakland, CA.
For the past four decades Connie and Stephen Wirtz have developed the careers of some of the most celebrated Bay Area artists. Together they have pioneered the work of fine art photography at a time when photography was still a marginalized art form, supporting such groundbreaking work as the 1978 exhibition, “L. Moholy = Nagg.” Over the years they opened their gallery to a range of emerging and accomplished contemporary artists, featuring such international artists as Arnaldo Pomodoro, Richard Avedon and Magdalena Abakanowicz, as well as cultivating the early careers of such California-based artists as Larry Sultan, Jim Goldberg, Todd Hido, Deborah Oropallo, and Marc Katano. Today Connie continues the Stephen Wirtz avant-garde tradition with a special focus on low-profile and late-career artists who have had an important impact on their field.
Available work can be seen on-line through our website and Artsy, as well as by appointment.
