Welcome to Mission Gallery! Today we open our website and have our opening show as a gallery. Thank you all for your interest and support in the journey. This is a new journey that will hopefully bring, much art, inspiration, and positive connecting experiences to all of us.
Root: Mission Gallery came from an internal desire and love I have for both art and the creation process, as well as a passion for gathering people in positive environments. With these strong inclinations I began testing and slowly building my experience; melding my aspirations into actions.
The name 'Mission' comes from my home, my neighborhood, and the place of my initial introduction into art; The Mission District of San Francisco, California. The spirit of the Mission is reflected loudly in the art covering its walls, bursting in its alleyways, and proudly draping its public schools and parks. There is no place that is off limits to expressing oneself in with wild color, imagery, and emotion; thats what the Mission is about. So inherently when creating a gallery and choosing a name, this was the first thing that came to mind.
The 'Mission' of Mission Gallery also holds a double meaning; with each show we have the goal of engaging both the artists and the audience in a mutual artistic experience. My hope is that there is an exchange felt by participants in our exhibits where everyone holds a piece in engaging the creatively inspired atmosphere.
I thank you all deeply for your support, I excited to see what the future holds!
