SPACE236 was a neighborhood gallery committed to preserving the art scene in San Francisco. Located in the Tenderloin district, the gallery served the community for a year before closing it’s doors. We transformed an old liquor shop to a beautiful gallery space used to inspire creation. SPACE236 was conceived to capture the nostalgia and charm through its artists and their stories by various mediums of artwork. Featured artists share personal experiences in San Francisco and work along side the gallery curator, Barry Lai, to fine tune their show concept. Displayed artwork range from paintings, illustration, photography, and sculptures. Aside from the rotating exhibits, SPACE236 also hosted social events with the central themes of knowledge and inspiration. Creatives speak on their craft and hold open forums in efforts to bring the community closer and foster inspiration.
