Painter and gallerist Shrey Purohit’s latest show “Art: Ingleside’s Pride” aims to highlight and honor emerging and established artists who live and work in Ingleside.

The weekend-long pop-up gallery, the eighth since September, will feature 50 works from 19 artists in styles ranging from avant garde abstract expressionists to traditional landscape painters. Some are trained, others are self taught. All either live or work in Ingleside.

“Art: Ingleside’s Pride” will also honor and recognize Rev. Roland Gordon for his creative and spiritual practices and contributions to the neighborhood at Ingleside Presbyterian Church, where his collage the Great Cloud of Witnesses covers nearly every interior wall aside from the sanctuary.

Purohit, 24, said it has been his pleasure to reveal the great but hidden talents residing in the neighborhood.

Ingleside Gallery, he added, strives to curate artists who have found their calling in creating art. Passion is the only requirement.

“Art: Ingleside’s Pride” will have a public reception on Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. Works will be available for purchase.

New Year’s Plans

Purohit plans to make the most of the new year by expanding Ingleside Gallery beyond a weekend pop-up, he told the Ingleside Light. In the near future, he plans to offer a studio open during the week where artists can work.

Purohit also provided a preview of the forthcoming pop-ups:

  • Jan. 14 – 15: Sip ‘n’ Paint
  • Jan. 21 – 23: Ingleside Group Show
  • Jan. 28 – 30: City College of San Francisco art show
  • Feb. 4 – 6: Ingleside Group Show
  • Feb. 11 – 13: Paint ‘n’ Sip

Ingleside Gallery’s future shows will also use themes related to animals and flowers, art battle, urban landscapes, Mother’s Day, love, solidarity and trauma, portraits and LGBTQ+ pride.

There are also plans for a month-long art auction to raise funds for AIDS research.

Purohit said inspiration for “Art: Ingleside’s Pride” partly came from the “Ingleside Pride” mural on his gallery’s storefront, which this reporter commissioned as a volunteer.
