About Montclair Gallery
Extraordinary Art for Extraordinary People
Art Curator: Herman Chan
Located in the popular Montclair shopping district of the prestigious Oakland Hills, Montclair Gallery occupies the entire ground floor of Golden Gate Sotheby's International Realty as a dedicated art gallery. The real estate brokerage is ensconced upstairs while our artists' pieces occupy the first floor gallery to reap the full benefits of high pedestrian traffic with unbeatable street frontage. Out of 1,000 offices in 71 countries, Montclair Gallery is the only Sotheby's real estate office with an exclusive art gallery.
Established since 1744 with a fine tradition of marketing the world’s most cherished art, Sotheby’s is now an innovative global art business serving the most discerning clientele. Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty benefits from this tradition and innovation through equity in the Sotheby’s brand name and marketing collaboration.
