Biography Note:
The Upper Street Market Gallery was founded in San Francisco, California in 1971. Operations of the gallery were divided between five founding members, including artist Ronald Jehu. The gallery exhibited work in both retrsopective and developmental stages, showing assemblages, photographs, paintings, sculptures, and crafts as well as theatrical shows, poetry readings, and musical performances. The gallery changed its name to Jehu Gallery in 1978, and at that point was sharing its space with Asian art and antiquities dealer Wylie Wong. The gallery was renamed Jehu-Wong Gallery in 1981. Its final exhibition, Yoshitoshi: Serenity and Violence , was in the spring of 1982.
