December Art Walk

December 3, 2009 6 pm until late. Geary to Haight!

The year has flown by and we are almost to 2010! What an exciting year on Divisadero as we have seen the Art Walk grow and our street transform. Hopefully,
Divisadero will be sporting some new median trees by the time Art Walk gets here.
We need your help, get involved, tell your friends and most of all, come out and enjoy Divisadero at night on Dec 3.

Divisadero Community Gallery Presents: Making Space

Divisadero Community Gallery presents “Making Space” a group art exhibition featuring District 5 workers and residents opening March 5th and running through April 2nd.

Previously a vacant store-front (and before that, a Money Mart) the Divisadero Community Gallery has been temporarily donated to the neighborhood as a proto-exhibition space for what we hope to be a sustainable arts incubation program in District 5. The shows title, “Making Space”, announces the need for community based response to San Francisco’s developing alternative arts scene. The exhibition itself is a big THANK YOU to D5 property owners, community leaders, and neighbors for supporting and encouraging local art.

Making Space will include three emerging artists working in a variety of mediums. Photographer Jeff McElroy will display select images from his upcoming book project, The Deleted Scene. J Morris will present mixed media collages that reflect a confluence of 90s skate art, comic books and graphic design. A veteran alternative arts organizer, Peter Max Lawrence’s will present oil paintings and conjure environments rich in texture and possibility.

The opening reception will be held in conjunction with the Divisadero Art Walk on March 5th and will be a participatory event. Visitors are invited to take part in the exhibition through various fun and engaging activities led by the artists themselves.

Divisadero Community Gallery is located at 537 Divisadero St. between Fell and Hayes. The Divisadero Community Gallery is open by appointment only. Parking is limited but public transportation is central.

For more information, visit, or email Jayna Swartzman at

Monday, January 12, 2009

Opening Night!

THANK YOU to everybody who participated in last months Divisadero Art Walk and came out to hang out with their neighbors and friends.  The Community Gallery continues to receive a lot of positive feedback from both District 5 locals and those just visiting.  It has been a truly rewarding experience to work with such fun forward thinking folks on this project.  I can't wait until the next one!
