GRAY LOFT GALLERY is a proud member of the Jingletown Arts and Business Association and the Oakland Art Murmur.
Gray Loft Gallery 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
