About ACCI Gallery
The Arts & Crafts Cooperative, Inc. (ACCI), located in the heart of North Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto, is a member-based community of artisans, artists, and art patrons. Initially conceived by a small group of artists and craftspeople in the mid-1950’s, ACCI Gallery was incorporated in 1959 and moved to its current location in 1960. ACCI purchased the beautiful brick building which houses the gallery in 1976. As the oldest Arts and Crafts co-op west of the Mississippi, ACCI is celebrating its 55th year of operation!
The mission of The Arts & Crafts
Cooperative Gallery is to provide a showcase for emerging and established artists to display and sell their artwork, while building community among artists, members, and patrons alike.
Approximately one hundred member artists exhibit their various media, including ceramics, glass, jewelry, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking, textiles, and sculpture. It is the mission of these member artists to promote ACCI as a locally and nationally recognized model cooperative that presents a thriving retail outlet and exhibit venue for distinctive arts and crafts while providing a source of income support to its members and an excellent working environment for its employees, all within a mutually supportive community.
