The Fourth Wall


The Fourth Wall is the newest art gallery to join the popular Uptown Oakland art scene.

The Fourth Wall Gallery takes its name from the theater where there is an imaginary fourth wall that allows the viewer to suspend their disbelief and join with the actors in the drama they are presenting. We want to bring that same experience, of being able to step into the world of the artist, to our gallery.
