Enjoy a collection of art work created by Long Beach and  Los Angeles area artists. Paintings (watercolors, oils, pastels), mixed media, drawings, sculptures, installations and photography.

Gallery Expo is a gallery dedicated to all artists, not just artists with the potential to become great. And, while we have some exceptional artists participating in our exhibits who are masters of their craft, we are also proud to be host to a wonderful array of emerging and upcoming artists.

Gallery Expo is committed to supporting and promoting artists and their work. While we do not limit our space to only Long Beach artists, we strongly believe in and promote the wealth of creativity that exists in our city and its surrounding areas.

Our exhibitions are usually thematic and, oftentimes, are interpreted, from each artist’s unique perspective, and designed to spark thought and discussion.  The gallery serves as a place where people can come together to discover the various cultures, traditions, lifestyles and philosophies that exist. So, come visit us, and come think and discuss art, and its power and influence in our lives. 

Artists’ reception will be held Sat., January 21, from 6-8 pm.

Exhibit runs through Jan. 27.

Location: The gallery is located in Bixby Knolls, in the EXPO Arts Center.

 4321 Atlantic Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90807

Hours: Fridays and Saturdays 4 – 8 pm

      Thank you, Larry! I have to admit, the shrine is better in “real” life.

    I believe I have a buyer for the metalic picture shown above. The assemblage is still available. Thanks for your submissions Ellen.
