Selling art -- I bought a piece of art and have had second thoughts. How can I re-sell it?

I was at an art auction and ended up buying a piece of art. It's very good, but after having it hanging in my room for a while, I realized it's not exactly my style. I'm wondering if there's a way to re-sell it. Any ideas?
The art itself is 18" x 24", mixed media (pen and ink, chalk pastels(?), some collage), sort of post-modern, somewhat sci-fi themes -- you can see it here
. It's probably worth a few hundred dollars. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I'd guess there must be someone who'd be interested in this, but I have no idea how the art world works. Any ideas?
(I did read this question
, but I think this situation is a bit different since the artist is probably not as well known.)
