LIMN Art Gallery, Leaving Space
March 24, 2010

Sad to report that after thirteen years, LIMN Art Gallery is leaving its landmark building…   LIMN Art Gallery is having one last group show at 292 Townsend
March 26th from 6:00 to 9:00 pm.

I personally have never shown at LIMN, but the artist that I work for, Stephen Galloway, is represented by the gallery and has had two solo shows at the San Francisco space and has shown at their former Seattle location.  The significance of LIMN is beyond just my connection through Stephen, it is one of the first spaces to introduce contemporary Chinese art to the United States.  It certainly has opened my eyes to the genre, there is some great work coming out of that country.  The gallery is directed by Christine Duval.

Though the art gallery is leaving its current wonderful space, it will return to its original format in early May; LIMN company and the art gallery will reopen under the same roof on the second floor of the main building at 290 Townsend.  LIMN will offer over 9000 square feet of exhibition space and will continue to support locals and international artists by introducing and promoting their work not only to San Francisco but also to a broader audience.
