Descendants Art Gallery, located in Oakland, California, showcases emerging artists work and was founded by curator Jessy Gaumann in 2019.

The Descendants whale stems from Gaumann’s Swiss heritage where every autumn farmers parade their cows, adorned with flower crowns, through town after bringing them down from the alps where they’ve been feasting on the freshest grass and wildflowers which will aid in producing the amazing cheese they are known for. This sense of celebration and paying homage is what Descendants Art Gallery is founded on.

There is also a rotating assortment of handmade merchandise by local artists.

Join us for art openings, workshops, artist talks and other events.

Stop on by and see for yourself, we’re open every Thursday through Sunday from 11am-7pm.
