This year’s auction will benefit Shipyard Trust for the Arts for the purpose of turning our new gallery space into new opportunities for artists to interact with the public and make a living throughout the year.

Introducing our brand-new Shipyard art gallery and event space in building 101!

A brilliant design  of movable panels transforms the new clean multi-purpose room into an art gallery. There are also a storage space and kitchenette to support a variety of activities. This transformation, new ADA-compliant bathrooms, and several fire safety upgrades were paid for by a grant the City of San Francisco obtained for the artists. But now it is up to us to outfit the space with furniture and equipment to make it fully functional.

Artists have generously donated work for our silent auction. The proceeds will help bring us closer to our fundraising goal to purchase the gear we need.

Planned uses of this space include art classes, artist talks, exhibits and tours, installations, films and musical presentations. We are excited to have a venue that will allow our artists to connect with the public outside the twice-yearly Open Studios events.
