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 KofieJet 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.


White Walls Gallery has worked for a decade to exist as the premiere destination for urban art in the Bay Area. Combined with the Shooting Gallery and two project spaces, this 5,000 sq ft space is one of the largest galleries on the west coast. Justin Giarla founded the gallery with a commitment to furthering the urban art movement, drawing directly from street art and graffiti culture. Named for its plain white walls, the gallery takes a backseat to the real focus: the work of our artists.
