What’s New With Holmes Fine Art

Holmes Fine Art originated in 1980 in San Jose, California, originally as Holmes & Associates, a business comprised by founder Meryle Karloff-Holmes, and other art professionals whose function was to serve as art-media advisors and consultants to private and public companies, developers, architects, designers, and individual collectors.

Ms. Karloff-Holmes created, organized, curated and marketed exhibitions in public and private environments, collaborating with established and recognized curators and non-profit organizations. In 1993, Ms. Karloff-Holmes and her husband, Roy Holmes, who is a pioneer in technology and broadcast media, together they established the Holmes Fine Art Gallery as a retail business in downtown San Jose, initially serving the people of San Jose, Santa Clara County and California.

Shortly after opening the gallery, they realized being in Silicon Valley, the center of technology that their art gallery should reflect their community. Hence creating Silicon Valley Institute of Art & Technology, known as Art-Tech, a 501c3 non-profit organization. They relocated Holmes Fine Art to their ranch in San Jose’s east hills and Hollywood Hills, while continuing with Art-Tech at their downtown location until 1999, when they decided to move Art-Tech to the hills…and through the internet-the world…
