950 Gallery

The 950 Gallery is permanently closed.

From June 2016 through March 2020, Spaceworks provided a space for contemporary artists and curators to host feature exhibitions – entirely of their own creation. These 24 exhibits were unique, culturally rich, historically significant, exploratory, and widely varied in form and content. Many were a catalyst for the community to come together, forming tighter bonds and furthering relationships. Spaceworks is honored to have been able to offer this project, and we celebrate the multitude of small and big wins that came about during its time.

All of the 950 Gallery exhibits are archived here, where the hard work of these passionate artists and curators can be remembered.
