Workshops and Services
We’re thrilled to announce we have opened a second space right next to the gallery in the historic Benicia Arsenal at 940 Tyler St. This gorgeous space will be for workshops, classes and offer additional exhibition opportunities. It has the same 20 foot ceilings, white-washed brick walls and wonderful light as our gallery next door, but also has oversized barn doors leading directly out to a gorgeous leafy patio with fountain, perfect for lunch, relaxing, or enjoying our wonderful California climate.
Our workshops feature the finest studio classes taught only by gallery artists or artists affiliated with the gallery. Look for classes in art writing, cooking and professional development soon, and make sure to sign up for our newsletter to stay informed on our latest offerings.
Both of our spaces in the Benicia Arsenal are just a 4-minute drive from downtown Benicia, a quaint waterfront town with a walkable main street full of galleries, shops and plenty of dining options. We recommend Lucca’s, Bella Sienna and The Rellik Tavern.
For out of town attendees, hotel accommodations range from standard hotels to waterfront B-and-B’s and historic inns. There are also plenty of AirBnB’s in Benicia and surrounding areas of Vallejo and Martinez. The galleries are a 45 minute drive from San Francisco (do not attempt during rush hours), but we recommend taking the Vallejo Ferry, which is a 15 minute drive, and gets you into the city in an hour.
Jen Tough now offers private, one-on-one consultation services for artists seeking a professional review of their work, or personalized strategies and solutions for accelerating their career. Jen also offers artist collective management, including art curation for art fairs and art fair prep and booth staffing. We can meet at the gallery, via telephone or Skype, or in your studio.

Art Collective for Art Fairs
Opus Art Collective is our invitational collective exclusively for art fairs.
We rent out large prestigious booths at art fairs and invited artists individually rent space within the booth. The gallery manages the collective, curates, designs and hangs the booth, staffs the booth with art sales professionals, ships and insures the work from the gallery, pays for all fees and licenses, advises on pricing and work selection, and promotes you and your work through social media and online.
Apply by sending an email to Jen@OpusArt.Work with a link to your website.
