Founded by Jason Bryan, Erik Parra and Jessica Laurent in 2007, Fivepoints Arthouse opened with a mission seeking to challenge traditional notions about what the creative space could be. Fivepoints operated as a unique resource for exhibitions of significant, engaging and challenging works of art as well as conceptualizing and creating forward thinking design solutions. Between 2007 and 2012, Fivepoints hosted over 150 art exhibitions, music, literary events and other art performances. Fivepoints Arthouse is currently in hibernation while forthcoming projects are including plans for an artists residency program and a mobile art studio, are being created.

  1. Fivepoints is looking for a new space and needs your help

    Fivepoints Arthouse needs your help!  Please join us in reaching our goal of $25,000 by September 1 by pledging any amount. Suggeseted pledge is $75, all pledges will go to our upcoming move and 2013 curatorial and event program fund. Fivepoints Arthouse is an artist owned and operated creative expression facility and we are raising money for a new home! Fivepoints Arthouse was previously located at 72 Tehama (one block south of Howard St, in the SOMA/Yerba Buena district of San Francisco) and first established in North Beach for 2 years before moving to 72 Tehama in June of 2009. The founders of Fivepoints Arthouse believe that an artist needs both space and a community of other artists in order to create critically significant art for public consumption. To that end, Fivepoints Arthouse seeks to support local artists by providing an ideal creative work environment for those artists who may not have a studio or space at home for a work area that is conducive to creating high quality art. Fivepoints was conceived and is realized by Jason Bryan, Jessica Laurent and Erik Parra. Originally from Texas, Jason Bryan is Fivepoints’ lead instigator. Design and architecture have been a driving force for Jason even before studying them at Texas A&M. In addition he brings considerable business and entrepreneurial experience to Fivepoints. Fivepoints Arthouse is an artist-run alternative space in San Francisco. Fivepoints seeks to challenge traditional notions of what the creative space can be. By exhibiting significant, engaging and challenging works of art as well as conceptualizing and creating forward thinking design solutions, Fivepoints operates as a unique resource for creative impulses.

Fivepoints Arthouse claims an active role in shaping the future of the SOMA and all of San Francisco by promoting visibility, accessibility and by offering a true alternative model for interactions between the community and the creator. image

  2. Fivepoints is extremely excited and honored to announce that one of our founders, Erik Parra, has been curated into the group exhibit “Myths of Progress: Utpoic Dreams/Dystopic Realities” at the wonderful Kala Gallery.


February 16-March 31, 2012
Kala Gallery, 2990 San Pablo Av., Berkeley, CA

Opening Reception: Thursday, February 16, 2012. 6-8PM

Conversation with the Artists: Saturday, March 31 at 2PM.

Kala Gallery is proud to present Myths of Progress, the first in our two-part 2012 exhibition series exploring cycles of time.

Year 2012: For some, it is the mere mention of this calendar date, which can evoke dis-ease and even foreboding. This is the year in which an important event will occur, according to an ancient inscription of a once-flourishing Maya civilization. But whether or not one buys into modern fatalistic readings of those hieroglyphs, of impending doom and calamity, one thing is certain: If we are not now entering “The End Times,” we are clearly in the midst of a period of radical changes. Could this simply be the endpoint of another great cycle, a transition to a more hopeful phase, and an embarcation on promising new projects, of physical and spiritual transformation and renewal? Will we at last see our frailties as a species transcended? Or have we already been down this road before?

In Myths of Progress, nine artists respond to these auspicious times, with works that veer from dreams of a renewable utopia, to an assortment of brave new failures emblemized by apocalyptic landscapes, and wildly out-of-control technologies.

Please join us for a Conversation with the Artists and the curator on Saturday, March 31 at 2:00 pm. The event is open to the public and is free of charge.

For complete press release, including bios of all the participating artists please visit the Klog!

  4. Fivepoints Arthouse is excited to announce that we moved to a great new location!

Our fantastic new location is in the Transbay/SOMA disctrict just south of Mission, around the corner from the MOMA, Yerba Buena Center of the Arts, The Academy of Art, Varnish, 111 Minna, and several other arts organizations. Occupying the same building (and pathos) as the former material and now digitally-apparitional gallery, Pigman Gallery, Fivepoints is still dedicated to providing a new, fun, and cereberal experience for both those who exhibit and those who view it.

Located just one block south of Howard street on Tehama- @ Second st. 
map is here…

In addition to continuing our ongoing events such as our Monday movie nights, and our Wednesday Social Studio Space, and starting up some new events: a monthly night of collage-only-collaboration and a special evening of live modelling with a twist! More on those fun details to come later, so stay tuned-

For those of you who meant to come out and support us over the last two years but just couldn’t find us, or get all the way to North Beach, or just got swamped working for the man; now is your chance to show your true colors and check out all the great things the staff have been doing to make us the best kept secret this side of bacon-flavored ice cream! No excuses now ladies and germs, we are spittin’ distance from BART, MUNI, CALtrans, and even Greyhound!

Bigger, Better, and above ground!! Fivepoints Arthouse is excited to announce that we moved to a great new location!
