Asylum Gallery is an artist-run space that is dedicated to showing the best of contemporary art by regional artists and to giving back to the community.

Asylum Gallery will donate 30% of sales proceeds to the Women’s Wisdom Project, a nonprofit program of the Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services.

Women's Wisdom Project is an art program for adult women who want to broaden their creative lives. Women's Wisdom is a free, drop-in program that includes art classes taught by professional artists. Women's Wisdom Project provides a free, hot lunch, a supportive staff, counseling, referrals and a unique opportunity for socialization. WWP accepts women from all backgrounds and walks of life.

The women use the healing power of art to recover and create stable, productive lives for themselves and their children. The women range in age from their 20's to their 70's, and the average age of a Wisdom artist is in her 40's. No art background is required to participate in the program. By using the creative process in a warm, supportive environment, WWP teaches women that they have the potential to shape their own lives. Expressing themselves in paintings, sketches, sculpture, writing and poetry rekindles their spirit and sense of self-worth. The goal of Women's Wisdom Project is to allow women to express themselves through art and regain the emotional strength to re-enter society, rejoin their families, go back to school, or join the working world.

Asylum Gallery is a contemporary gallery of artists whose work spans a unique circumference. You will find vibrant artwork that ranges from classic black & white to abstract photography, mixed media painting and traditional printmaking to work in the digital realm. In addition to the exhibits, there are always prints by member artists, cards, and hand-made jewelry on sale for very reasonable prices.

Ann Tracy founded Asylum Gallery in March of 2005, as one of the original groups which formed HQ: Headquarters for the Arts located at 25th & R Sts., in midtown Sacramento, California. She was joined by original members Cherie Hacker & Terri Ramirez and other member artists now include Linda Katzdorn, William Obernesser and Marguerite Schaffron.

While being a membership gallery, Asylum also offers exhibition space to other artists in the community with its bi-annual International Mail Art shows (in which a portion of proceeds go to different charitable groups) and the Juried Shows in November and December.
