San Francisco CA 94110  

The Red Poppy Art House is a working artists’ studio, gallery, classroom, and performance space. We are dedicated to providing an accessible and intimate experience of the arts, and are convinced that the joy and power of the arts lie in the creative process much more than in the creative product. We are committed to bringing that process to public light. The Art House hosts interdisciplinary arts events, collaborative exhibitions, workshops, small concerts, and private parties.

When it comes to an intimate experience of the arts, the Red Poppy Art House is one of the most unique venues in San Francisco. This little place, (approx. 650 sq. ft.) on the corner of Folsom Street and 23rd Street, has become a thriving center for interdisciplinary activity. It is often likened to small cafés found on the backstreets of European and South American cities. During the week, the Art House is an artists’ work studio with paintings in progress and tarps and materials spread out around the room. By weekend, it is transformed into a colorful, candlelit concert hall, hosting an array of top-caliber artists/performers—both locally and from around the world. Even the bathroom has more than 15 original paintings and a printing press!
