ampersand international arts
+ Ping Pong
+ Silverman Gallery + TART = Rail

Rail is an innovative alliance of San Francisco based project spaces and galleries: ampersand international arts, Ping Pong Gallery, Silverman Gallery and TART. As seen on the map, Rail’s project spaces and galleries are located in the path of the new MUNI T train that connects the Third Street, DogPatch, South Beach and Mission Bay neighborhoods.

The Rail galleries are diverse in their programming, but share an understanding of what constitutes an art experience, informed by the intimate nature of their spaces. Through their
collective experiences, Rail spaces ensure the growing arts presence on Third Street. Rail’s actions include monthly coordinated openings, projects across all Rail venues, an online
resource, hosting of national and international visiting artists, curators and critics.

Rail stands as an open invitation to the neighborhood, the San Francisco arts community and beyond.

“Rail‘s ‘artwalk’was a trip! -- a journey of discovery, sociability, and unexpected aesthetic delights. It’s a perfect opportunity to explore what’s germinating in the San Francisco art scene
and to tour this developing area of the city.” MARCIA TANNER curator / writer
