UMA Gallery Oakland was born in a former mortuary during the pandemic spring of 2021. Initially addressing the cry from artists to rise from the ashes, Unkle Morty's Pop Up emerged from the depths of the historic Mosswood Chapel revealing the heart, UMA Gallery Oakland. We embrace our symbolic dwelling as a testament to the indestructible spirit of tenacious artists everywhere and invite you to hear their message.

UMA Gallery provides a meeting space where ideas are exchanged, transformed, communicated, questioned, embraced, taught and displayed.
