Dear ASG Supporter,

Viewing art is a transformative experience. In those moments, our thoughts refresh and focus. We are inspired and compelled in our own creative endeavors.

Aggregate Space Gallery is devoted to providing artists with opportunities to create installations and projects that most galleries and arts nonprofits would not undertake, and to ensuring that each and every work displayed in our space is afforded an optimal exhibition setting.

Now more than ever, we need that space and we need your partnership. For us — artists and makers, concerned citizens and community advocates — that space provides the necessary nourishment and energy to pursue a better world.

Aggregate Space Gallery is a singular home for artists and immersive art experiences in the Bay Area. With healthy measures of determination and grit, and thanks to countless hours volunteered by our dedicated supporters, we built this home for you. We built this place for and with you because we believe in our community, and we believe in you. Help sustain Aggregate Space Gallery as a unique center for large-scale creative experimentation, and grow our Oakland roots deeper, by making a gift today.

Since 2011, we have:
  • Supported and championed 140 local artists through the production of 41 solo and group exhibitions and over 20 artist talks. That’s fresh programming every six weeks!
  • Celebrated the connection of visual and literary arts by facilitating projects with 25 writers-in-residence and curating 40 readings showcasing over 100 writers through the Featherboard Writing Series.
  • Shepherded the next generation of artists into our community by hosting special exhibitions of work by students from California College of the Arts, San Francisco Art Institute, and Mills College.
  • Offered on-the-ground learning opportunities to budding artists and curators through our gallery internship program.
  • Strengthened our network of arts resources by partnering with local organizations such as Oakland Art Murmur, BAASICS (Bay Area Art and Science Interdisciplinary Collaborative Sessions), and Root Division..
All of our programming is available to the public free of charge.

Visual artists are our cultural vanguard. By providing space for artists to conduct bold experiments and granting them access to robust technical support that helps share their vision with the public, we’re catalyzing unparalleled community enrichment. When art installations move beyond commodity-driven work, they are able to take great risks and engage the viewer in exciting and dramatic ways — igniting seismic perceptual shifts for artist and viewer alike.

With your support, we can keep this extraordinary momentum going.

In October 2016, we attended the 2016 convening of Common Field in Miami, Florida, where we shared our big ideas, challenges, and future plans with a rich assemblage of fellow experimental, visual artists’ organizations. We were greatly inspired by the stability and sustainability of these organizations from across the country. The gathering underscored for us how Aggregate Space Gallery’s longevity and service to our community depends largely on the generosity of individual and foundation donors.

As Oakland’s cultural landscape continues to shift and burgeoning spaces such as Aggregate Space Gallery struggle to gain support from the city, your contributions are critical to our survival. Let’s dig in our heels and stand out as an exceptional platform for essential contemporary art practice in the Bay Area.

We need your help to bolster and grow our unique incubator for challenging and immersive media. A base of individual support will go a long way to ensure our future. Any size gift will make a huge difference—truly!

Many thanks for considering a gift to Aggregate Space Gallery. Together, we can keep the Bay Area home to art and artists.


Sincerely,
Conrad Meyers | Executive Director
S. Willis Meyers | Board Chair
