About SLATE Art
SLATE Art LLC is a boutique creative firm. We exhibit and sell the work of our favorite artists armed with our in-depth knowledge of contemporary art, as well as an interest in curating, architecture, and interior design. Over the years, we have had opportunities to showcase work in a range of styles, including abstract, landscape, cityscape, figurative art, impressionism, expressionism, street art, op art, minimalism, and installation art—to name just a few. Our mission is to create opportunities for people to live, work, and engage with art that delights and stimulates the mind and senses, inspires creativity and innovation, and expresses individual taste and values.
One way we achieve this goal is with our art gallery in Uptown Oakland, called SLATE contemporary, where we deliver six themed exhibitions per year. Less formal shows take place in the SLATE Hall Gallery and our office space, where we rotate paintings, photography, prints, mixed-media work, and sculpture by our stable of over forty emerging and mid-career artists from across the U.S. and Europe. Gallery exhibitions are open Monday–Friday 10–5, Saturday 12–5, and by appointment. We are also open until 9pm on the first Friday of every month for the popular Oakland Art Murmur art walk.
SLATE Art Consulting
For private clients who are too busy to come to the gallery and interior designers, SLATE offers residential art consulting services that include research, digital presentations, and in-home art viewings. For clients with a larger budget who are seeking artists with national and international reputations, we offer art advisory services that include acquisition through other galleries, international auction houses, and art fairs.
SLATE Art’s commercial art consulting services division provides art for office buildings, residential buildings, healthcare, and hospitality environments. Working in tandem with architects, interior designers, building managers, and developers, we follow renovation and new-construction projects from blue prints through construction to installation. Regardless of the budget, we are always looking for ways to use art to elevate the level of design and, ultimately, the quality of experience for the people who live, work, and play in these spaces every day.
SLATE Art serves clients all over the San Francisco Bay Area, including the Peninsula, Marin, Napa, Sonoma, and East Bay communities, such as Berkeley, Oakland, Orinda, and Lafayette. We also have a strong presence in North Lake Tahoe with a local representative who is available to help clients in Truckee, Martis Camp, Northstar, Mountainside, Incline Village, and surrounding areas. With a national reach, we have sold and shipped works of art to collectors in New York, Los Angeles, Houston, North Carolina, and Hawaii, among others.
