"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 Valencia!

"quite 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."

They have paintings, sculpture, ceramic masks, note cards, etc.   If you walk through the small gallery, you can head toward the back where the artists are working.  They are open and will talk to you about what they're making."

"At least one weekend, forego the multiplex and support arts in SF. You'll be glad you did... The theater features local artists, so go support them --- I saw some friends perform (Strong Current, all-woman modern dance troupe with awesome choreography) there this weekend- and it was a great night."

"This is a wonderful place to see art and music at the same time in the Mission.  The acoustics were fantastic and it was a warm, intimate atmosphere, I hope this place will continue to grow... This place is a real supporter of the arts and a great place to go if you want to really experience music or art in close quarters."

phone: 415.863.2141

"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 it's around."



"Your 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 and 

more than any other, incites one to dream. "

Besides the Clarion Alley there's two more in the Mission both off 24th Street the mini-park near York Street and Balmey Alley between Harrison and Treat
The Clarion Alley Mural Project
When the Bitter End Meets the Rainbow Swallow
Clarion Alley Mural Project
By Amy Larkin Gelbach

Clarion Alley runs between Mission and Valencia, parallel to 17th and 18th streets. It is open 24 hours a day and visible during daylight and dusk.

Clarion Alley Project at sfstation

"Clarion is in constant dialogue, continuously involved in a struggle of expression that plays out in a vibrant conversation down its length. Protests against domestic violence, and war and aggression by the establishment cry out together. Memorials boldly and graciously eulogize those who have fallen. An image of Apocalyptic San Francisco and a figure of Uncle Sam spitting bombs on to his foot sandwich Julie Murray's photo-realist escalator." 
Amy Larkin Gelbach Nov-2002
