Jack Hanley Gallery was established in 1987 as Trans-Avant Garde Gallery in Austin, Texas. In 1990, Hanley moved the gallery to San Francisco and changed the name officially to Jack Hanley Gallery. During his ten-year residency at 395 Valencia, Jack Hanley Gallery became synonymous with the Mission District, fostering local artists that came to be known as “The Mission School.” In 2008, Jack Hanley Gallery relocated to New York City, closing both San Francisco and Los Angeles galleries. The gallery moved to its present pre-war building at 327 Broome Street in 2012. Beyond its immediate artistic program, the gallery has also organized regular projects, published artist books and printed limited edition posters.
