Artist, Gallery Owner, Alexander Salazar Fine Art

Alexander Salazar brings finer artistic deals to San Diego County. A Harvard alumnus, art critic, historian, collector and respected art dealer in La Jolla and Boston for many years, Alexander Salazar opened three locations in 2010 in downtown San Diego. One was transformed into a fine art salon featuring the works of national and international artists, and on Broadway, Salazar offers an artist-in-residency studio each month to an emerging San Diego artist. At 7th Ave., one can see the open gallery space featuring modern and contemporary art. Salazar holds a master’s degree in theology and art from Harvard University and he earned a second master’s in sociology and art from Boston College. He lived in London during undergraduate work, where he studied art before moving to Florence, Italy to do research on the masters. With more than 13 years experience as an art dealer around the country, Salazar continues to build museum-quality collections worldwide. A collector himself, he said he understands that art is a reflection of oneself and his only requirement for acquiring a work from his gallery is that “you love it!”
