Turn of the Century Fine Arts began in 1991, at 2518 San Pablo Ave Berkeley CA, as a venue for Art Literature and Furniture.
The first gallery was started by Lewis Meyers Jr. and Augusta Huggins-Meyers. It was to present their work and that of their many artist friends, as well as traveling visionaries that frequented the San Fransisco Bay area. There were regular art receptions, poetry readings, presentations of broadsides and book releases.
In 1993 it expanded to include two 900 Sq ft rooms, one of which had a coffee shop, pastries, and a lunch counter.
Events were well attended and rather varied for 17 years on the block, until Lewis moved the gallery to the northern California town of Weed for 7 years. It was continued there until it was time to retire from public life and focus on his own art.
