San Francisco galleries introduce new artists this month.

It's often difficult for untried artists to get a showing. But this month in San Francisco, some 35 galleries are devoting their spaces exclusively to new or "undiscovered" artists, and you're welcome to tour the galleries, meet the artists, and get a first look at talent on the way up.

Sponsored by the San Francisco Art Dealers Association, "Introductions '85" includes painting, sculpture, and photography by artists who have not yet had major Bay Area shows.

Participating galleries are concentrated in three main areas: the Civic Center has 3, the area south of Market Street has 6, and there are 15 downtown.

For a list of all participating galleries, you can stop by Elaine Potter Gallery, 336 Hayes Street (Civic Center area; open 11 to 6 Tuesdays through Saturdays); Bluxome Gallery, 173 Bluxome Street (south of Market; opne 10 to 5 Tuesdays through Fridays, 10 to 4 Saturdays); Fuller Goldeen Gallery, 228 Grant Avenue (downtown; open 10 to 5:30 Tuesdays through Fridays, 10:30 to 5 Saturdays).

On July 13, all the galleries will hold an open house from 1 to 5 with the artists present; that evening at 5 is a reception ($12.50) at the Museum of Modern Art on Van Ness Avenue at McAllister Street. From 2 to 4 on July 14, there'll be a free panel discussion on collecting contemporary art at Fort Mason Center.
