Backstock Gallery is a contemporary arts project space focused on exhibiting work by emerging Bay Area artists. Situated in two previously unused back rooms in Oak Common, a retail concept store in the Grand Lake neighborhood, Backstock Gallery provides exhibiting artists with the creative space needed to explore new ideas without the pressure of creating work to sell. Working closely with our artists, we seek to present works from the under represented, whether the artists are coming from marginalized communities, working in non-traditional genres, or just bringing forth new ways of thinking.
