As fellow artists and members of the community, our vision is to help promote the wonderful art and culture our community has to offer. The Artist-Xchange is dedicated to carrying a wide array of media and working along side the local San Francisco Bay Area artists by providing an outlet for public access. The Artist-Xchange is a community resource for both artists and the public to use, offering both display and sales representation for local artists, promotional events, and charity sponsorship, while being an active member of the community we are apart of. We offer an easy way for artists to market their work to a diverse customer base visiting our well-managed professional gallery, our online virtual gallery, and our many special events and openings.

Our gallery is in a prime location in the mission, offering a well-managed clean and friendly environment with lots of customer appeal in a low pressure down to earth vibe. Come hang out, relax and check out the talented artists that San Francisco has to offer.

Our website is focused on promoting our artists, providing an up-to-date virtual gallery of what is being shown on location, and allowing items to be bought and sold on-line. The site also provides brief summaries and samples with links to our artistĄ¯s websites, and a community-based calendar of art related events.

The wide variety of events from first Friday artist openings, holiday gift fairs, SF open studios and charity events are designed to be just one of the ways to help promote the community and build appreciation for the arts. Please contact us if there is a place you feel the Artist-Xchange can help make a positive change in your community.

"The Artist-Xchange creates a unique and cost effective alternative for buying and selling original works of art from a traditional high priced gallery. The Artist-Xchange allows the artist to make a higher return on their creations while offering the most affordable pricing to our customers by implementing a consignment based retail model for local San Francisco Bay Area artists. This consignment retail model allows artists to set their asking price while avoiding the high fees associated with traditional gallery display space. The goal of the Artist-Xchange is to allow the wonderful creativity of the San Francisco Bay Area artists to be enjoyed by every customer that enters the store." - Owner Scott Mitchell
