The three-year-old Guerrero Gallery will be closing after its current show, featuring artists Lucien Shapiro and Ben Venom, which ends on Oct. 1.

The gallery plans to reopen within six months, but it is unclear where. A statement released by the gallery on Tuesday said that they are looking for a new space in several neighborhoods.

“With so much changing within the city’s landscape we are making adjustments,” the statement read.

Andres Guerrero, current owner and director, has run the gallery out of a warehouse space at 2700 19th Street since it opened in March of 2010. A giant “G” marks the roll-up over the gallery door.

Guerrero, formerly the director and founder of White Walls at 886 Geary Street, intends to continue the art program by hosting a pop-up gallery at an undisclosed location.  “Although we are sad to be leaving our inaugural space we are truly excited about the future and will keep you informed of our progress moving forward,” the statement said.
