“Exactly As I Remember” (portraying the iconic red doors of 111 Minna) by SF artist, Alec HuxleyBeginning September 1st, 2013, 111 Minna Gallery will be celebrating our 20th Anniversary with our dear friends at Last Gasp and ALL of our friends here in our beloved city of San Francisco, the entire Bay Area, across the nation and over seas. In 1993, 111 Minna Gallery took root in SOMA, a district that has now become home to a multitude of galleries. Over the last twenty years, we’ve grown and molded with the changing tides of this neighborhood to become a well-deserved household name.
One of the many diverse events from past years hosted by 111 Minna Gallery.Due to the vast number of people who influenced and supported 111 Minna throughout the past twenty years, we have many to thank and can only hope to celebrate with as many of our friends and patrons as possible this September.

This location would later become the heart of the up and coming art district, which has now been solidified with the construction of the SF MOMA, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and countless progressive galleries emerging in the surrounding area.With a business model focused on service and hospitality, patrons began to relish the visual aesthetics sourced from Bay Area artists, in conjunction with the laid back atmosphere that has long been associated with 111 Minna and it’s founder.For many artists, 111 Minna quickly became thee San Francisco gallery to exhibit their work and would grow to become an establishment, which would gain notoriety and an overall reputation for launching artist’s careers, both nationally and internationally, while acting as host for a vast variety of art, specifically focused on underground, low brow, edgy and often times controversial.For the past twenty years, 111 Minna has maintained it’s reputation for constant progression and positive energy and in so doing has become a cornerstone of San Francisco culture. As its twentieth year anniversary approaches, 111 Minna Gallery will build further momentum in holding true to its roots, while displaying cutting edge art from talented emerging artists, as well as those firmly established.The gallery also maintains its history of service to a number of charities and non-profit organizations, as well as the many people who consider it and its staff to be home and family.
