Empire Seven Studios (E7S) is an Art Gallery/Boutique located in the North district of Downtown San Jose, CA. Founders Carlos Araujo & Jennifer Ahn established E7S in 2008, and since then has become a beacon to an underground art culture in the South Bay. Known for housing great talents and featuring art exhibition openings every 2nd Friday of the month, E7S has come a long way from its early beginnings as a project with friends. The consistent hard work over the years is a testament to the vigorous tasks and efforts played by each individual involved from the start.
What is now our life’s work is a privilege to share and enjoy with the public. E7S humbly pays tribute to the hard working artist; sacrificing day in and day out to push their work. This is a reminder that it’s because of them we are here and we will never conform or settle. Instead, E7S will continue to grow as was intended from the very beginning but staying rooted within its community.
We would like to give a big thanks to all of you who have been supportive in this ongoing experience. E7S is a place where good company and friendships are intertwined and the Arts are forever appreciated.
