Editor's Note: Last year, owners Amir and Emmanuelle Mortazavi moved Highlight Gallery to a new location at 17 Kearny Street in San Francisco's Financial District. Representing emerging and mid-career artists locally, nationally and internationally, Highlight aims to bring new artists and works to the San Francisco public, and to a broader international audience through its participation in art fairs. For more information, please visit Highlight Gallery.
One of San Francisco's best-kept art secrets: the Highlight, an in-home gallery located in the city's toniest neighborhood. Highlight sits behind the facade of a grand home in San Francisco's Pacific Heights neighborhood. Founders Amir and Emmanuelle Mortazavi (who also reside in the pristine space) showcase a rotating collection of art, with the theme changing each year. The first destination is Belgium; on view is a curation of works by Belgian artists, such as Filip Dujardin and Renato Nicolodi. Open by appointment only; contact Highlight directly.

Above: Maarten de Ceulaer Balloon Bowls are created by casting mass-colored, strong synthetic plaster into a balloon, after which a second balloon is inserted, and inflated. The two balloons act as flexible molds, resulting in unique shapes and colors. This Victor Hunt Design Documentary shows the entrancing process.
