White Walls celebrated its 10th Anniversary over the weekend with a group exhibition featuring their extensive roster of artists who have exhibited with White Walls and the Shooting Gallery over the years. Not only a San Francisco Bay Area staple, White Walls has established itself amongst the leading contemporary Urban Art Galleries in the world. Here is a set of pictures from the opening night which was packed with a large crowd in support.


White Walls and Shooting Gallery are pleased to present the 10 Year Anniversary Show, an exhibition of artists that have provided the backbone of our success and artists we look forward to growing with. Selections from Curator Justin Giarla’s personal collection will be on display alongside new works. Join us for the opening reception Saturday, March 9, from 7-11pm. The exhibit will be open to the public for viewing through April 6, 2013.

Directly following the grand opening of our new building at 886 Geary, the 10 Year Anniversary Show will be an expansive group exhibition, filling both White Walls and Shooting Gallery with influential artists that have changed the face of urban contemporary art, a scene that the galleries were created to give a home to almost a decade ago. What was once an underdeveloped and oft-ignored part of the art world has grown into an incredibly diversified cornerstone of the contemporary market. The 10 Year Anniversary Show will reflect the breadth of talent that made such a change possible with range of work that will include everything from Russel Young’s ‘diamond dust’ screen prints on linen to Gronquist’s sculptural take on taxidermy.

Artists featured will be Mark Whalen, Herakut, Shepard Fairey, Augustine Kofie, Jet Martinez, DAL East, Faith 47, Fahamu Pecou, Robert Williams, Niels Shoe Meulman, Greg Gossel, ROA, Apex, Ferris Plock, C215, Casey Gray, David Grant, Peter Gronquist, Miss Bugs, Shawn Barber, Russell Young, Logan Hicks, Helen Bayly, Lauren Napolitano, Rene Gagnon, Gregory Euclide, Robert Christian Malmberg and Sean Murdock.
