About The Gallery
57th Street Gallery's intentions are to use art and music as a tool to make the community aware of the impact that art and music has on the world from the past to the present. The Gallery is open to new ideas, diversity and welcomes community participation. 57th Street Gallery's visitors will always enter into a warm and welcoming environment. Collecting art is an objective of the 57th Street Gallery.
57th Street Gallery is the brain child of Floyd Pellom a San Francisco Bay Area Business Man and Entrepreneur. Mr. Pellom has been collecting exclusive works of fine art for many years with a focus on works of jazz musicians and musical themes. Mr. Pellom’s father introduced him to the world of jazz and the impact that jazz has had on the World. His father and Floyd did the jazz scene in the Bay Area for many years and they were privileged to meet many of the jazz legends and local talented musicians.
As Mr. Pellom’s collection has grown over the years he has often been approached by collectors and individuals on how to obtain some fine art from his private collection. Mr. Pellom’s vision was to showcase his fine art collection, as well as provide a venue for other artists to display their artwork, therefore 57th Street Gallery was launched. 57th Street Gallery gives local Bay Area artists exposure and an opportunity to display their art work in a gallery setting and hopefully expand their collector base.
Mr. Pellom’s love for jazz is another endeavor he undertook when he launched his “Saturday Evening Jazz” nights to expose the community to the jazz world. Some of the Bay Area’s finest jazz groups perform twice a month at 57th Street Gallery. The “Saturday Evening Jazz” series will bring life to the fine art world giving exposure not only to the fine art but also to the lovers of jazz. The 57th Street Gallery looks forward to their new chapters of exposure to the community in providing fine art and jazz music for their educational and cultural needs.
The 57th Street Gallery encourages Artists and Curators to contact the Gallery for possible exhibitions and/or collaborative partnerships.
