"Are you an emerging artist? Well, Artist-Xchange
might just be the place for you. My first visit to this gallery was
with a fellow artist friend and we both agreed that it was a nice
little dig. The staff
is gregarious and helpful. Best of all? You can afford the art.
From originals to giclee prints, you can invest in some art that
you can actually appreciate over time. Another commendable element
of this art gallery is the diverse types (representational to
abstract). Definitely worth a visit while you're strolling on

A little gallery in the back
simply the cultural heart of my favorite intersection in the city
...he's super involved in the community and hosts art openings, book
readings, and music performances here that are worth cramming into the
aisles for. It's a great place to meet local artists, musicians, and
just plain locals who are anything but plain... The art receptions are
probably the most awesome thing about the store."

go if you want to really experience music or art in close quarters."

"All the shows I have been to have been great and the artists
they feature always ranged in their art discipline which is always nice
to see. The staff there are the absolutely best, cheerful, helpful, and
always good for a conversation.... It's a definitely a breath of fresh
air in the snooty and hipper-than-thou art scene though and I'm glad
of the MISSION
city is remarkable not only for its beauty.
It is also, of all the cities in the United States, the one
whose name, the world over, conjures up the most visions
more than any other, incites one to dream. "
