History

Located in Point Richmond, BridgeMakerARTS was once located onsite at Bridge Storage and ArtSpace and was an extension of the business owned and operated by Jeff Wright and his father Jim Wright.

Jeff Wright along with manager Daryl Henline decided to break from tradition and take a portion of the storage units at Bridge Storage and convert them into spaces for creativity. In addition they constructed a gallery area where artists, musicians and makers could display their work as well as  invite other artists to come and exhibit…and Bridge Storage and ArtSpace was born.

The Wrights, realizing that this venture had a life of its own decided to help fund, through generous donations, the nucleus of what has become BridgeMakerARTS.

Soon after The Arts Political closing party in 2016, and following the Ghost Ship fire, the gallery was closed, and has now re-opened under new leadership. We are grateful to Bridge for three years of sponsorship.
