About PHOTO

PHOTO is a dedicated gallery space for fine art photographic prints in the East Bay opened in December 2010. We feature a variety of exhibits, primarily the work of regional artists. We keep a stock of framed and unframed prints available in the gallery. Artists shown at the gallery are accomplished photographers and skilled printers, whether using digital technology, traditional darkroom methods, or alternative/antique processes.

Submissions
If you are a fine art photographer and wish PHOTO to consider your work, please email a website link, OR email a few jpgs with pdfs of resume and artist statement. As a small gallery we do not have resources to respond to all submissions, nor to respond quickly. Email info@photogalleryoakland.com with ARTIST SUBMISSION in the subject line. You are also welcome to send by mail, or drop off during gallery hours, a small, non-returnable artist packet. Please, no student work.
