Art City Gallery



The Art Gallery hosts curated exhibits and events. A community resource for culture and education, the gallery reflects Art City's reason for being: Art 24/7. The gallery supports collaboration, empowerment and no-holds barred exploration and implementation of ideas; from traditional gallery exhibits, to poetry readings, performances, lectures, talks, and cinema. Additionally it will be home to the San Buenaventura Artists' Union for 4 exhibitions in 2018.

Art City Gallery specializes in curating exhibitions and events to develop conversation on avant-garde and outsider art practices that operate out in the real world. Then we put them in the white cube and invite you to talk about it with us.

These conversations develop material for research and curatorial care. We invite young and emerging curators to assist in the assembling, managing, exhibiting and archiving of diverse collections of art.

We love local art and focus on archiving decades of local Ventura above and underground, high and lowbrow art history. If you have any tips on art or artists, please come by or email us at

Art City Gallery, together here on Dubbers and Rex with Avant Garden and Under the Bed, cultivates community for the already strong creative community of Ventura, seeing City employees, patrons of the arts, and representatives from our thriving business community come together to enrich the value of art in our lives.

In light of this, we collaborate with Ventura community organizations, academic institutions and other public and private bodies throughout the yearly exhibition rotation. Our aim is to produce high quality exhibitions which give rise to intelligent and vital conversations between artists and their audiences. Art City Gallery shows a great deal of artwork by Art City Studios artists, while seeking inclusivity regionally, nationally and internationally.

Art City Gallery regularly holds artist talks, lectures, film & video screening, performance art, solstice, equinox, theater and musical events.
