FISK GALLERY LOS ANGELESOnce upon a time located on a quiet street in Portland, FISK Gallery now has a new home for spotlighting contemporary art, off of bustling Glendale Blvd. in Los Angeles, CA. Same name, same values, different location. We strive to give artists the platform to express their artistic abilities and connect with the community, and have fun while doing it.
Although we couldn’t do it all without a little help from our good friends, Bad People. Bad People is a collective studio space, pop up shop, and more located behind the gallery. When not hosting FISK artists, Bad People welcomes social and art events.
FISK GALLERY PORTLAND
FISK Gallery Portland operated at 3636B N. Mississippi Ave from 2014-16, founded by Bijan Berahimi and Michael Spoljaric. At this space we presented fifteen shows from artists all over the country and world. Artist works were presented in many forms, including: painting, sculpture, illustration, video and performance art. Operated out of the quaint space at the back of our dear friends Beacon Sound Record Store and Label, FISK Gallery was a neighborhood pillar and hub of contemporary art, music, and fun. Officially declared dead in April of 2016, the FISK Gallery archive can be viewed on this site.
