Gallery of Sea and Heaven

Artistic expression is a prime mode of communication for many BI participants, and the Gallery of Sea and Heaven in downtown Santa Rosa has become a key portal through which we can share that communication with the community.

Located on South A Street just south of Juilliard Park, the Gallery is a cornerstone of the burgeoning artistic community that has made this Santa Rosa’s most creative neighborhood. In addition to the Gallery, BI manages seven art studios in the building at 312 S. A St., providing creative space for BI participants and community artists alike.

That integration of BI’s programs with the broader community is reflected in the Gallery’s exhibits.

To stay current with the gallery's happenings, like us on Facebook.

Stop by the Gallery and be prepared to be amazed and inspired. Hours are noon to 5 p.m., Thursday through Saturday.
