FM Oakland features a gallery and ten artist studio spaces founded in 2010 by Joseph Kowalczyk, and previous members of the Firehouse Collective in Berkeley. In 2018, after a three year gallery hiatus, Joseph Kowalczyk and his wife Emily Tian, obtained full management of the space. In doing so, they've reopened the front gallery and restored the standard of creative professionalism which the studio was intended to be.
Welcome to the new FM Oakland! We foster the diversity and creativity of Bay Area artists who take their practice seriously as they actively seek to expand their aesthetic vocabulary, develop their body of work, and inspire the community around them. Come visit us the First Friday of every month during the Oakland Art Murmur or every Saturday from 1-5pm during the weekly Saturday Stroll! We are also open by appointment. Come say hello!
