How we became a real art gallery
It started back in December 2020. I had to run to the UPS Store and picked the one on Market and Castro. There was this cool spot ready for lease, I noticed. Big windows, brick arches, a white brick wall. It looked kind of cool.
The city was gloomy and overcast, with a just few people walking the streets and homeless people enjoying the empty city. "San Francisco is dying" headlines were common back then. But San Francisco couldn't be dying. San Francisco was only transforming and shedding its old skin.
And out of all places where we could have been, I think we ended up in the best possible spot.
The iconic Market St in San Francisco with its streetcars running along for more than 130 years.
And the famous Castro District. In the heart of San Francisco.
"a neighborhood of freedom, acceptance, creativity and diversity."
It has been long several months since then, getting the space ready. On June 19th, our small but intimate art gallery will open its doors at 2324 Market St in San Francisco.
So many people helped us to make it happen.
I would like to thank Don and Nancy Felton and the Almac Camera for their amazing art photography and just being good people.
Leslee Michelsen for her continuous support and encouragement. And reminding me to alway proofread (yes, Grammarly isn't enough! ;-)
