SUDDEN Art Gallery Is not open at this moment.

We would like to endorse and support  Thumbprint Gallery and Sparks Gallery in downtown San Diego.


Thank you




This is the gallery space within Industry Showroom. Our intention is to feature local San Diego artists and hold monthly art events to feature their talents. The work will then remain on display and our staff will represent the artist and perform sales on the remaining pieces.

We have been hard at work in our NEW space on 5th Avenue in the Gaslamp, we hope to have shows again soon.  Please sign up for the newsletter at right and we will let you know when we are ready to host.  Thank You.

There are a ton of new businesses starting at kitchen tables and being operated out of garages that need to expand and get more exposure.  The jump from garage to full blown store and all of the expenses that come with it are usually too great of a leap. 

Industry Showroom is here to bridge that gap.

Shared office spaces are hardly a new concept, there are hundreds of office suites in San Diego.  Our concept builds for that basic premise yet Industry Showroom also shares traits with shared retail spaces like Leaping Lotus in Solana Beach. With our space you get retail floorspace and a private office and/or workshop.  Our concept gives you what you really need to grow a business.  Rents range from $250 for display space to $1100 for an enormous office with counters, shelving, storage, AND retail display space. Internet, electricity, water, and other misc. expenses that can nickel and dime a small business owner to death are all included.  You won't have to sweat the little things, we do that for you.  You can focus on your design, wholesale operations, internet sales, and your on-site retail sales.

Combine that with a community seminar space (which rents for a great price by the way), an art gallery for monthly events. a photography room, a podcast station, a fine art screen print studio, and a curated showfloor of local design talent... you have it all!  It's like "Empire DEPOT" for those that wish to build their creative empire by hand.

It's the smart way
to build your brand.
