In response to the heightened concerns related to COVID-19, 1708 Gallery will be temporarily closed


Updates about our reopening will be provided via email and posted here and on social media.

In the meantime, we'll be moving our programming online for the next few weeks. Join us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to stay connected with our community of artists, supporters, and friends. We'll share posts about our current and upcoming artists, some possible takeovers, maybe a few favorites lists, and a couple of throwbacks.

As we try to navigate these unprecidented times, your support means the difference. Please consider donating to local arts organizations and supporting small businesses.

We ALSO have a special coupon for 15% off anything in our shop! Simply use the code FlattenThatCurve at checkout.
