Thanks for Making 2022 Special!
Since opening in San Francisco’s Mission District in September 2019, Voss Gallery has sought to inspire, connect and enrich lives by making the art buying process easy, accessible and fun! We work closely with our family of artists to produce dynamic solo and thematically organized group shows and socially-conscious projects to benefit the greater community.
Last year we presented Ian Robertson-Salt’s “Nine to Five” spotlight exhibition that explored the relationship between society and the natural environment; The Tracy Piper’s “Bloom” solo exhibition that reimagined the Garden of Eden as an inclusive paradise celebrating our collective growth; Ernie Steiner’s “Figuratively Speaking” solo exhibition of urban contemporary paintings that blended figurative and abstract elements; Maya Fuji’s “Kami/髪/神” solo exhibition of figurative illustrations which reimagined the Japanese folklore belief that a woman’s hair is interconnected to one’s spirit, soul, and energy; Gale Hart’s “Smile” solo exhibition of new emoji-inspired sculptures and drawings that examined the irony of an anthropomorphized yellow dot with limited expressions widely used to communicate complex behavior; Justyna Kisielewicz’s “Entangled Stories” solo exhibition of risqué work which combined traditional painting and textile techniques to explore our common humanity; and Steve Javiel’s “Pursuit of Happiness” solo exhibition that blended the beauty found in nature and urban decay.
In addition, the gallery hosted a weekend photoshoot soirée with New Orleans-based artist, Josh Hailey; The Tracy Piper’s “SEEN” pop-up collaborative art project and book release of 50 eye paintings; and a “February Favorites” group exhibition dedicated to amplifying the diverse voices of the Bay Area’s creative community.
We also expanded our community partnerships and organized two pop-up exhibitions at Blackbird featuring work by David Samuels and Deena Smith; organized a pop-up event and three mural projects with The Tracy Piper and Jordan Herren at San Francisco’s historic Ferry Building; secured three corporate licensing opportunities with The Tracy Piper, Jennifer Banzaca, and John Osgood; facilitated placing work for two gallery-represented artists in exhibitions at Mirus and Heron Arts and for donation to benefit THHE Auction, Oakland Art for Kids and the Junior League of San Francisco; released two prints by The Tracy Piper internationally with Creative Debuts; and collaborated with Moxy South Beach to host an Art Basel afterparty with The Tracy Piper during Miami Art Week.
THANK YOU for your continued support—we look forward to growing with you in the years to come!
With gratitude and excitement for what’s ahead in 2023,
Ashley L. Voss
