Welcome, Artists!

Artist gallery

We are Artists! We want to show our work and help other artists promote their work. We have an online gallery that showcases the work of several great artists.
We attend as many of our artists gallery openings as we can and we review the shows for you.

Book Projects
We publish ‘Children’s books for grown-ups’ - a collection of books that are fun to read for children of any age. Our focus is on picture books that include a lot of really good art. We have several in progress projects - titles and brief descriptions are listed on our books page. We also publish selected poetry collections (but not the boring stuff).

Four Oceans Press & Gallery is a very small independent artistic publishing company established in 2006 and started in the San Francisco Bay Area and operating out of  Oakland, California and Portland, Oregon.
