Sparks Gallery

Representing contemporary artwork by local artists

San Diego is on its way to becoming a powerful art scene. Join us in celebrating and discussing local art.

Sparks Gallery represents contemporary artwork from artists living in San Diego and encourages patronage of local artists, while supporting San Diego’s growth as a strong art community. 

Located in the Gaslamp Quarter of downtown San Diego, Sparks Gallery is housed in the newly restored historic Sterling Hardware Building, between Island and Market on Sixth Avenue. Architects Hanna Gabriel Wells were chosen to design the new space and Wilson Construction spearheaded the 2-year restoration of the building. The gallery is also available for private event rentals.
