4×5 Gallery- Closing This Month

Unfortunately, 4×5 Gallery is officially closing at the end of this month. I went to an exhibit opening there in April for the show Home, a group show that expressed varied interpretations of what ‘home’ means and looks like. But two months later, like many photographic spaces in the area, 4×5 will come to a close. I hear that there is a last event going on soon, so I’m keeping tabs on their Facebook page in the hopes of making it out.

I have been most drawn to the space because it is shared with Glass Key Photo, a photo supply shop in the Lower Haight, which I’m glad to hear will stay open and at that location. Also because both Glass Key Photo and 4×5 Gallery have been run by CCSF graduates, where I currently take classes. And of course because they’ve always been super helpful and friendly when I pop my head in about this or that.

The grief of many lost photography businesses is weighing heavily on me right now, as 4×5 Gallery feels like another link in the chain (including Calumet, Photobooth and others). So, I encourage anyone to head over there before the end of June to make the most of it.
