ABOUT SHOOTING GALLERY
Shooting Gallery opened its doors in 2003 to the historic Tenderloin district of San Francisco; one known for its diverse culture and history. Owner and curator, Justin Giarla, founded the space to offer a welcoming environment for viewing the art he loves. Taking up collecting art at the age of 23, Giarla has since amassed over 500 pieces in his own collection. Growing up in Southern California gave Giarla an affinity with pop art, street art, and outsider art. Giarla has long since recognized the necessity to provide lowbrow artists with a platform, which is exactly what Shooting Gallery has done for a full decade. In addition to the exhibition of leading shows in pop surrealism, figurative realism, and color abstraction, Shooting Gallery also participates in art fairs around the world and hosts annual fundraisers for local nonprofits. Since opening Shooting Gallery, Giarla has gone on to start his own publishing company, and as of February, 2013, has expanded White Walls and Shooting Gallery into a 5,000 sq ft state of the art gallery space, featuring two new project spaces.
We ship anywhere in the world and accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. We also accept wire transfers from international collectors.
The secondary art market is one of Justin Giarla's specialities, so please let us know if you are looking for a specific piece. Chances are we can find it.
In February 2013, moved to the historic 886 Geary building and are happy to offer the space for special events rental.
As a venue, our building presents the sleek, white-walled aesthetic of a contemporary art gallery with modern, architectural elegance. With capabilities to house more than 300 guests for standing receptions, or 100 seated, the options are vast.
The ceiling is replete with skylights, which pour in natural light for day events, as well as suspended lighting tracks that provide versatile illumination for evenings. Our 14-20 foot high ceilings are furnished with exposed original timber beams that refer to the building's heritage as a former bakery in the historic Tenderloin.
