ABOUT GRAY LOFT GALLERY
Gray Loft Gallery, founded by Jan Watten, has promoted the rich art
culture of Jingletown and the greater Bay Area since 2012. 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
