ABOUT GRAY LOFT GALLERY
Loft Gallery - voted "Best Art Gallery" in the 2016 Oakland Magazine
Award - has promoted the rich art culture of Jingletown and the greater
Bay Area for 5 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
GRAY LOFT GALLERY is a proud member of the Jingletown Arts and Business Association and the Oakland Art Murmur. Hours: Saturdays 1:00 to 5:00 Sundays by appointment (call or email us)
