Founded in 2003, Artist-Xchange is a contemporary retail art gallery located in the heart of the city in the vibrant Mission District in San Francisco. Artist-Xchange promotes and exhibits work from San Francisco bay area artists in all levels of their career from emerging to established. Artist-Xchange showcases a wide array of affortable art such as paintings, illustrations, printmaking, mixed media, digital art, photography, prints, sculptures, ceramics, glass, jewelry and textiles. Artist-Xchange is open to the public and features a monthly group show. The Artist-Xchange is easily accessible via public transit using Bart (16th St. Mission) or Muni lines.
After nearly seven years of having our doors open for business, the Artist-Xchange management has made a decision to close the doors of the 16th St. gallery. This decision was based on the continued challenging economic conditions the gallery has faced. This was a difficult decision that we know will have impacts on both the artists and customers that we have worked with over the years.
Catherine and myself will miss so many wonderful people that we have come to know over the years. We would like to thank both the customers and the artists for making the Artist-Xchange what it is today. Even though we are closing our doors, we feel as if we have accomplished much and the memories we have of this gallery and the talented artists we have worked with will last a lifetime. We sincerely appreciate the support that we have received from the San Francisco Bay Area artist community.
The final day for sales will be Dec 31st 2010.
We wish everyone a healthy, happy, and successful 2011.
It has been an honor to serve you,
Scott and Catherine
