Neighbor Noah lives on Norwich in Bernal, but he’s built a great name for himself around town at Electric Works, his combination art gallery and fine art press in SOMA. Except, after tomorrow, Electric Works will only be a fine art press, because Neighbor Noah is closing the gallery part of the business in the name of improved work-life balance.
There’s a party tonight to mark the end of the gallery’s glorious run, and we’re all invited:
Please join us in celebrating 7 years of our gallery program!

Here’s more info on our plans…
After some long consideration, we have decided to close the gallery after the current exhibition by Dave Schubert ends on December 12th.
We reached this decision after looking at what it means to run a fine art press / multiple-making workshop AND a gallery at the same time. The time commitment was simply too much for us to do both things at the level we wanted to. We looked at both sides of the business and decided we had to stick with our roots in the printmaking and artist collaboration world.
With a lot of our friends and colleagues closing up shop for a variety of reasons, we wanted to let you know this is a choice we are making in order to focus on our first love: working with artists. We’re not the latest victim of commercial real estate rents skyrocketing, or of getting edged out of creative space. We have an opportunity to continue to work with artists and we are taking it.
We’d like to extend our thanks to the artists, collectors, curators, writers, and art lovers who have showered us with attention since we began this venture seven years ago. It’s been great working with all of you—and all of you will be included in our continuing activities on the printmaking and project front. Look for exciting updates.
So—what does all this good news mean? We’re having a party!
Please join us Friday, December 13th for our official gallery closing party!
1360 Mission Street (between 9th and 10th)
