Stephen C. Wagner

Gallerist, Professional Artist, & Educator

 

​Stephen is the managing partner at Arc Gallery & Studios in San Francisco featuring a 1,000 sq. ft. art gallery, two smaller galleries, ten artist studios, an art education center, and coffeehouse. Stephen has run the San Francisco Artist Network for over 15 years, offering programs for professional development for artists. He has actively participated with the ArtSpan San Francisco Open Studios planning committees and received the first ArtSpan Volunteer of the Year Award in 2008. Stephen was the Program Development Coordinator for the San Diego Art Institute and a member of the Southern California Museum Council. ​

 

Stephen believes that the creative process contributes to a healthy quality of life, and that art provides an inexhaustible resource for exploration, reflection, and understanding. Each person has the capacity to respond to artwork in ways that challenge pre-conceived notions, stimulate fresh insights, and encourage deeper understanding. With these beliefs, Stephen has spent the last two decades striving to bring art awareness to all by creating new art education programs, teaching art education techniques, teaching art classes, and advocating the arts.

 

As the Program Development Coordinator for the San Diego Art Institute, Stephen was responsible for all educational programs for both adults and children. He was a member of the Balboa Park Educators Council and Museum Educators Southern California. To train teachers to incorporate art into their everyday curriculum, Stephen taught Aesthetic Education classes through the University of San Diego Division of Continuing Education. He has been on the Advisory Board and a guest speaker at Ray College of Design in Chicago, IL, and an instructor and guest speaker at Harper College in Palatine, IL. 

 

Stephen encourages other artists to commit to their artwork and take the steps necessary to become more successful through his guest speaking on professional development for artists at art organizations throughout California. His lectures offer artists insight to jump-start their artist career, obtain clear focus on their intention for their artwork, create a strategic plan for their artist career, create an impressive artist portfolio website, and master the business of art. Stephen also provides one-on-one consultations with artists to develop strategies, goals, and actions plans.

 

Having studied art since the age of six, Stephen C. Wagner's art education includes workshops at the Witte Museum, Trinity University, and private study, all in San Antonio, TX. During his early years, Stephen exhibited his works in many venues, including juried shows, art fairs, coffeehouses, and galleries. He obtained his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas at Arlington in painting and graphic communication. Stephen has also completed the Lincoln Center Institute for the Arts in Education aesthetics education training program through the McCallum Theatre Education Institute in Palm Desert, CA.

 

Stephen has exhibited and sold his artwork in galleries in London, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Laguna Beach, San Francisco, San Diego, Palm Springs, Seattle, New Orleans, Albuquerque, Galveston, Sun Valley, Kauai, Alameda, and San Anselmo, as well as art centers in Oakland, Berkeley, Pacifica, Sebastopol, Petaluma, Benicia, and Tarzana.  ​Stephen's artwork is included in the permanent collections at the Riverside Art Museum in Riverside, CA, and the Museum of the Living Artist in San Diego, CA. He has completed large-scale installations of his artwork for Johnson & Johnson in San Diego, CA, Kaiser Permanente in Los Angeles, CA, and the Riverside County District Attorney's Office in Riverside, CA.
