In 2009, Deborah Fritz, owner of Giacobbe-Fritz Fine Art since 2001, decided she wanted to do something different from her traditional gallery and opened gf Contemporary. Fritz says the gallery is "dedicated to finding art that is fresh, compelling and meaningful for the environments in which our clients live and work." Their aim is to create "a remarkable, ongoing collaboration" between the collector, the artist and the gallery. Most of gf contemporary's artists are local and all are represented by national and/or international galleries as well. Clients run from casual art buyers to serious collectors. Their best-known artists are Pascal, Paul Shapiro and Gigi Mills. They average about five new shows a year; two are group shows and once a year they include artists not on represented by the gallery.
- Contemporary Art Galleries: "Going on the annual Edible Art Tour? Stop by both gf Contemporary and Giacobbe-Fritz. They really embrace the event's theme each year. Décor, music and food all reflect their chosen theme which have included the Wizard of Oz, Broadway, Peter Pan, 50's diner and Alice in Wonderland."
- Best for Contemporary Art Galleries Because: gf contemporary is one of historic Canyon Road's most important galleries.
