    Artist Benefits:

    Low Commissions - As an artist owned and operated gallery we provide an excellent value to our artists through really low commissions (generally only 10%) so that more of your sales go directly to you.

    Large Wall Space - Our artists rotate between wall spaces every two months so that each artist has an opportunity to be in different areas of the gallery.  We have generous spaces that allow for a variety of art sizes.  This also keeps our gallery fresh and looking different for our customers.

    Window Display - We also rotate between artists for the Window Display, ensuring that each artist gets ample exposure on Pacific Coast Highway.
    Marketing - We market all of our artists and their work through our various social media outlets, direct email, press releases, and event promotion.
    Art Events - We host numerous art events throughout the year and promote them through our email list and social media outlets.
