Gallery Closure Announcement:
After almost 50 years of vital and momentous exhibitions, Anglim Gilbert Gallery, formerly Gallery Paule Anglim, will close on September 30th. The final exhibitions—Carlos Villa: Pagmamano and Katherine Sherwood: Brain Flowers—closed on August 29th. The gallery will be open by appointment through the remainder of September.
In the late 1960s, Paule Anglim started Architecture Art Service, placing important large scale works in public and corporate spaces on the West Coast. Gallery Paule Anglim opened in 1972 in North Beach, and quickly built an impressive roster of artists and a dedicated audience. Ten years later, she moved the gallery downtown to 14 Geary Street. Ed Gilbert began working as gallery manager in 1988, and was soon director. In a 1996 interview in The San Francisco Chronicle, Paule attributed much of the success of the gallery to Ed, who was responsible for bringing in many of the new, younger artists. Following Paule’s death in 2015, Ed continued the legacy with Anglim Gilbert Gallery, and was among the first galleries at Minnesota Street Project.
We are grateful to all of you — artists, collectors, curators, writers, and friends — who have been a part of the gallery, and particularly for the great love and consideration you have given in the last weeks of Ed’s life.
Stay tuned for more announcements in the near future from Shannon Trimble, who has some exciting news to share.
