Happy New Year from all of us at Gray Loft Gallery!
We wish you love, peace and ART in the New Year.
Our 6th year has been eventful and the gallery walls have been graced with many wonderful pieces of art created by many incredible artists. Thank you to all of those artists for believing in our vision and for being part of our history.

And thank you to all the art lovers for your support this past year.
We hope you will visit us again!

We will be taking a winter break, with our next show opening in February.
We look forward to seeing you then!

On November 21st we lost our dear friend and colleague Karyn Yandow.

She was an integral part of the gallery since the beginning.  We collaborated with Karyn over the years, and she curated many wonderful and inspired exhibits. Her encouragement, enthusiasm, creativity, professionalism and inspiration will be greatly missed by all who knew her. 

Rest in peace dear friend.

Gray Loft Gallery - voted "Best Art Gallery"  two years in a row - 2016  & 2017 - in the Oakland Magazine Readers' Choice Award - has promoted the rich art culture of Jingletown and the greater Bay Area for 6 years. The gallery has been referred to as a hidden gem in Jingletown, and noted by Kenneth Baker, former SF Chronicle Art Critic, in his Visual Arts Don’t Miss Column as “…A space gaining prominence in the Bay Area…”   The mission of the gallery is to provide exhibition opportunities for artists in a setting that is an alternative to the traditional gallery model. We hope to inspire, engage and celebrate artists in our community and beyond.  We acknowledge the achievements of emerging, mid-career and established artists – with an emphasis on those who live and work in the Bay Area – in a non-traditional art space. A number of artists began their art career at Gray Loft Gallery.
“I have always enjoyed this gallery, superb atmosphere and lighting. The polished and worn hardwood floors creek slightly in places as you climb to the third floor, providing a granular and unique, organic aesthetic. This is a do-not-miss venue in the East Bay.”  –  Facebook Review
