Since 1915, Studio Shop Gallery has been dedicated to enriching the greater San Francisco Bay Area with fine contemporary art and custom picture framing services. As the oldest retail business in Burlingame, and one of California's oldest art galleries, SSG takes pride in their enduring commitment to the community through art and custom framing.

Studio Shop Gallery has showcased art across a diverse array of subject matters and media, blending traditional and contemporary forms of art. At the heart of the program lies the immersive experience, where art transcends boundaries and inspires fresh perspectives. Throughout the year, they host a multitude of art exhibitions and events, fostering connections among collectors, artists, and design professionals.


Under the stewardship of Janet and Carl Martin, along with their daughter-in-law Stephanie Martin, Studio Shop Gallery continues to thrive as a cherished family-owned business. The recent refresh of their gallery space in Burlingame reflects their ongoing commitment to providing a welcoming environment for art lovers.

Stephanie Martin shares her perspective, saying, "Art is a very personal thing—it brings out the best in us and lifts our spirits on a daily basis. For me, it is important that our clients and collectors leave the gallery with a smile on their face.”

The revamped space embodies a vision of bringing together art enthusiasts by creating an environment where contemporary fine art inspires and transcends boundaries. The exhibition hall, now light-filled and spacious, features artworks by over 50 local and international painters and sculptors, showcasing a diverse range of art.


One of the highlights of the remodel is the elegant frame design area, equipped with state-of-the-art lighting to assist patrons in finding the perfect frame for their artwork. Studio Shop Gallery prides themselves on using the highest quality materials, demonstrating a deep-rooted passion for craftsmanship and dedication to preserving the beauty of artwork for generations to come.

The gallery's picture frame collection is as diverse as the art it houses, featuring everything from beautifully hand-carved and hand-gilded frames to sleek and modern designs. Notably, Studio Shop Gallery's commitment to excellence in framing has been nationally recognized, with two of their framing staff recently winning design awards at a national competition for their outstanding craftsmanship and innovation.


In addition to the exhibition hall, Studio Shop Gallery offers a private viewing area, where collectors can relax and immerse themselves in the works curated by the gallery team. This intimate space provides a tranquil setting for clients to connect with the art on a deeper level.

Studio Shop Gallery extends its services beyond the gallery walls, offering in-home consultations, art showings and art installation services.

In a world where art is both a luxury and a necessity, Studio Shop Gallery remains a steadfast supporter of artistic expression and community enrichment. With its newly designed space, the gallery continues to be a source of inspiration, creativity, and connection for the vibrant communities of the San Francisco Bay Area.
