Space 1026 has continued to thrive for 20 years with the support of its members past and present, the Philadelphia community, and the generous donations from our annual art auction. We provide affordable studio spaces, house a communal silk screen facility, and offer members a chance to be part of the Philadelphia art community while serving as a supportive venue for varied gallery programming.
Donations contribute in a variety of ways to help sustain the Space 1026 gallery and studio facilities including the cost of repairs, equipment and materials, promotional post cards and refreshments at openings for visiting artists, participation in group shows and other costs necessary in hosting events throughout the year.
The art auction also provides an accessible way for new audiences to discover and own great art donated by members and supporters. Not only does the auction feature work from prominent Space 1026 members like Adam Wallacavage, Andrew Jeffery Wright, Alex Lukas and James Ulmer, but it also features work from celebrated national artists like Charles Burns, Tim Kerr, Ed Templeton and Erin Riley.
All lots begin with an opening bid of only $5! For collectors looking for amazing bargains or for those people starting an art collection, the Space 1026 art auction is a great opportunity to go home with an amazing piece of original art. With your support we look forward to continuing to foster eclectic gallery programming and a growing community of artists for years to come.
