SPACE 1439

Space 1439 at the San Diego Art Institute is a boutique store offering unique hand crafts, prints and books which showcase the contemporary art culture of Southern California and the Baja Norte region. We are always looking for a variety of new and interesting products to sell in the shop and it's a great way for your work to be seen and enjoyed by our visitors.  

We are making a dedicated "Small Works" section in the shop for our artist members. Small works can include both 2D and 3D works.  Works should not exceed one foot in any dimension.  
We are also starting a flat file program for prints.  Prints must be at least in an edition of 10 and can be made both from traditional printmaking techniques or digitally printed.  The idea is to have a collection of artist prints that anyone can look through, enjoy and purchase. 

SPACE 1439 works on a consignment basis and all who are interested in selling with us must apply. 

Please contact Carlene Welsh for more information or to request an application by calling 619.236.0011 or emailing cwelsh@sandiego-art.org
