Mission + History
Weinberg/Newton Gallery was a non-commercial gallery with a mission to collaborate with nonprofit organizations and artists to educate and engage the public on social justice issues. Through artwork and programming, the gallery provided a vital space for open discourse on critical contemporary issues facing our communities. Connecting artists with social justice organizations, they worked to drive change and cultivate a culture of consciousness.
In 2016, David Weinberg Photography became Weinberg/Newton Gallery. The change reflected the values of The Weinberg/Newton Gallery Family Foundation, which has been led jointly by David Weinberg and Jerry Newton since 2009.
The gallery permanently closed its doors in 2023.
We greatly appreciate all your patronage and support throughout the years. Please continue to support our past partners by taking action, volunteering, or donating to their just causes.
