The Academy Galleries host the work of students, alumni and faculty from Academy of Art University. We maintain six gallery spaces at four locations throughout San Francisco, the Atelier, the Cannery and 625 and 688 Sutter. Please see below for more information on each of the galleries.

Please note that the following hours of our galleries may change due to events and other special circumstances. We ask that you call the gallery before coming in to confirm their hours. Thank you.



The Atelier space at 79 New Montgomery showcases the creativity and talent of students and alumni from a range of artistic disciplines. While the walls function as a traditional gallery space, the floor also includes Academy merchandise. The space is constantly in flux. Events, merchandise, and featured artists share Atelier throughout the year. Opened in the winter of 2011, the Atelier is still a new space, and has yet to find a limit to what it has to offer the San Francisco community.
