Since 1997, Traywick Contemporary has represented emerging and mid-career artists
who have a decidedly West Coast influence, though many live and work outside the
San Francisco Bay Area. The program has consistently brought together a range of
diverse, and thoughtful artistic practices that focus on materials and process.
The gallery exhibition space is located on the ground floor of the former Berkeley
Masonic Temple, built in 1924. While representing a dedicated group of contemporary
artists, many of whom have shown with the gallery since its founding, Traywick
Contemporary presents a model that encourages new possibilities in the way art is both
exhibited and experienced. The program champions non-traditional media and
materials, including site-specific installations and commissions that respond to and
address the unique exhibition space, which often extends beyond the gallery walls.
We are open by appointment, Thursday through Saturday, 10 am – 4 pm.
