My name is Jordan Lewis and I want to reach out to the ConceptArt.org community on behalf of the Folsom Street Foundry.
We are a new San Francisco venue opening early Summer, 2012 dedicated to showcasing digitally created concept artwork.
A small team of friends and myself have been transforming an old art deco San Francisco industrial building into a gallery space and workshop focused on innovation and bringing concepts to life.
We are using high grade commercial NEC video wall panels to slideshow concept artwork, allowing guests to enjoy a large selection of what we consider to be some of the best artwork being produced today.
We have access to several very high end print shops in the neighborhood that can produce great prints. We will offer guests the ability to purchase these high quality prints of the artwork on display. We also plan to purchase several prints from the current show that we will have immediately available for purchase. Profit from the sales of all artwork will go primarily go to you, the artist, with our gallery taking a small percentage.
We think digitally created concept artwork is the coolest art being created today. We also feel that it is is a vastly underserved market at present.
I'll conclude with a short but more detailed description of who we are and what we are doing, and a solicitation for artwork from the ConceptArt.org community. If you are interested in having your work showcased at our venue please send us an email, preferably with a link to an example or examples of your artwork, at:
Who We Are
Folsom Street Foundry is a digital concept gallery.
It is also a working art and creation studio.
The team consists of artists, metal workers, carpenters, Navy SEALs and an attorney.
We are looking to increase our numbers.
What We Do
We showcase both emerging and established digital concept artists on commercial LCD displays and paneled arrays. All artwork will either be for display only, or for sale as high quality artists prints, at the discretion of the artist.
We are located in the historic SOMA industrial district of San Francisco. Our building is a former foundry built in 1936 in the art deco style. The entire venue serves as a showcase contrasting the masonry construction of old San Francisco with vivid technology, immersive sound, and the work of a new generation of artists.
Our goal for the venue is to serve as a nexus for inspiration and discussion among artists as well as a gallery for anyone wanting to see eye popping digital concept artwork.
