MISSION

Studio 110 Projects is an artist-centered experimental workspace committed to offering emerging visual artists the opportunity to develop and showcase new ideas, engage with the local community, and collaborate with one another. Central to our mission is encouraging an evolving artistic and social dialogue, amplifying community voices. We encourage the flow of images and ideas between the diverse communities that cross paths in the dynamic San Francisco Bay Area. We currently support conceptually based projects taking the form of installation, performance, new media, exhibitions, artist residencies, popup events, and off-site projects. 

HISTORY

After completing her MFA at the San Francisco Art Institute, Pamela Belknap realized there was additional need for a platform to support graduating artists to continue the exploration and development of their ideas in the artist community. She found that upon leaving graduate school artists are forced to define themselves individually; entrepreneurship at its purest. Pamela wanted to help artists treading this overwhelming undefined path and this led to founding Studio 110 Gallery. Studio 110 seeks to support artists at their earliest evolutionary stage, aiding them in establishing a dynamic art network that will continue to support them as they grow.

Michal Wisniowski holds an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. As a Polish artist whose formative years were divided between then-communist Poland, refugee camps in Denmark, and a racially hostile, post-unification Germany, his work processes memory and trauma to investigate nostalgia as a survival strategy. His most recent projects have been exhibited in the “BAN7 Clinic: Object of Transformation” at YBCA and “Survival Adaptations” Aggregate Space Gallery.
