SIY Gallery is a contemporary art gallery reframing the perception of mental illness by exhibiting the work of professional artists alongside stories of their creative journeys. The gallery is breaking down stigma and inspiring people to think differently about mental health.
The Arts for Healing
Siy Gallery is an art gallery and concierge service center for artists. Our mission is to help promote artists by showcasing their creativity through the media and at our boutique gallery in San Francisco. We are also connecting our artists to be advocates for the mental health nonprofit sector. Join us in connecting the creative process of art with the community through exhibitions and workshops that promote growth and well-being.
We represent and help promote artists working in a wide array of media, including: meditation, painting, sculpture, photography, video, music, poetry and installation; all related to supporting the healing power of art.
How We Are Helping
Art is a powerful healing tool to explore deep emotions - the sorrows, the struggles, and the joys. It has the ability to transform us by awakening parts of ourselves, to recover and heal, expanding our growth and understanding of ourselves and the world. Through the creation and appreciation of artwork, poetry and music, we can find heightened understanding of ourselves and our world, developing deeper personal vocabularies for a fuller identity.
Through the sharing of the healing power of art, we can open up a greater community dialogue for a deeper and more meaningful understanding of the artist’s creative world and in doing so, help those who suffer in the mental health with a new medium of expression.
Ten percent of proceeds of each artwork will benefit a non-profit organization that support the mental health community. We strive to give those whose lives have been disrupted by mental illness an opportunity to experience meaningful work and relationships as they reintegrate into the broader community.
We would like to thank all the artists in this journey who have opened their hearts and souls in sharing their creativity. They have allowed Siy Gallery a window into their lives, their struggles and their triumphs in helping create this special forum.

In light of the uncertainty regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are writing to share an update on the steps we are taking to safeguard our artists, community, and staff.
We are starting upcoming onsite events, but all guests must be vaccinated from (COVID-19) and wear a mask. Again, nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our community.
Art can be a source of beauty and inspiration during these challenging times. We hope you will continue to support our artists, and follow us on social media for a daily dose of creativity and joy.
We are motivated to move ahead knowing that our community needs the inspiration of art. We will continue to be in the present, and try to shape the future in making a difference for the mental health through the art.
