People and dogs had a fun night as they browsed among new visual art, bopped to Jazz music, and of course indulged in food and drink while sitting in a SAAB automobile.
In addition, they drank and learned about wines produced by L Uvaggio di Giacomo and poured by Mel Knox and Jim Moore.
GarageGallery was created by Peter MacLaird, co-owner of Embarcadero Automotive, which has sold and repaired SAAB automobiles for 30 years. An avid art collector, Peter has displayed various artists’ artwork at each of Embarcadero Automotive's previous three facilities. With the acquisition of the Bryant St. building, he has launched a full-time gallery, sharing space with Embarcadero Automotive's Sales Department.
