Fulton Crossing Artisan Center is a place that is truly like no other. With 23 studios and two warehouses, Fulton Crossing holds not only fine art but much more. Some of its studio spaces serve as a place for growth and development, such as Becoming Independent, an art program that aids those with disabilities in expressing themselves through visual media. Other studios hold artists working away in fabric and glass blowing and making cabinetry in a wood workshop. One warehouse houses mid-century furniture — unique pieces that are handpicked by Janakos and Company.
WHAT WE DO – FULTON CROSSING GALLERY
In our main warehouse space is Fulton Crossing Gallery with 14 studio spaces featuring all local Sonoma County artists. Each of these spaces is separately inhabited by the artist, where they can have a place to create new work, display their latest pieces or meet with clients. On every third Friday, these artists open their studio spaces to exchange their ideas and creations with the public.
Fulton Crossing Gallery also exhibits art and furniture from other Sonoma County artists and hosts the largest gallery selection in Sonoma. From mixed media to large abstract pieces and colorful oil paintings, Fulton Crossing Gallery has something for everyone, at every price point. Our art is proudly displayed in a variety of spaces in Sonoma, from the best wineries to fine-dining restaurants. Designers and the public alike are encouraged to see what we have to offer.
We proudly host our space for private events and conferences. We also take appointments for interior designers.

Fulton Crossing's building dates to the 1800s when it originally served as a fruit and vegetable packing plant. Throughout the years the building took on many roles, including a winery, turkey slaughterhouse, housing for circus animals, farmer’s market, and chicken-processing plant.
When the chicken factory closed its doors and abandoned the property in 2010, the building fell into disarray. Metal scavengers stripped it and wreaked havoc on its electrical integrity. Eventually, the property became a popular dumping site and an eyesore among the beautiful landscapes of the neighboring vineyards and wineries. Throughout years of deterioration, it was hard to imagine this simple warehouse could be anything more than a junkyard. (For "before" photos, click here.)
But not all was lost. In 2010, a vision to restore the building's unique history and charm was born. Through intensive labor that spanned the course of several years, the warehouse was refurbished into a gallery space where artists of Sonoma County could showcase their work. Now, Fulton Crossing Gallery is proud of its journey and what it has become. Rooms that were once used for destruction are now used for the creation of one-of-a-kind art.
