untitledTen years and over 120 guest artists later, 12x16gallery has spanned the spectrum of contemporary art: photography, painting, sculpture, printmaking, installation, poetry, and of course, collage.

When 12x16gallery opened on Southeast Division Street in a space barely larger than its name (a standard frame size and the street address was 1216, it made sense), some referred to the artists as “The Collagistas” as of the seven founding members, five were collage artists.

Since then the gallery has expanded in scope and mission to provide a space that has allowed many young artists their first gallery show, mounted mid and late career retrospectives, posthumous exhibitions and guest-curated group shows.

12x16galleryTEN is an exhibition as diverse as this city, its artists, members and patrons.
