The Dark Room Gallery
The Gallery at The Dark Room is a contemporary artspace dedicated to exhibiting dynamic bodies of work by emerging and mid-career photographers in St. Louis and beyond. An intimate space where live music, wine and food merge with art, The Dark Room presents images without the additional distractions of frame and mat, a decision that reduces the traditional costs of exhibiting for artists. Exhibitions generally occur on a bi-monthly basis, contributing the space with an exciting lineup of six shows a year. The Gallery at The Dark Room is one of several venues managed by the Kranzberg Arts Foundation, which provides the Grand Center neighborhood and St. Louis with myriad options for viewing art, photography, live music, and theater performances.
