Huntington Beach, CA--Windows Gallery at Huntington
Beach Central Library and Cultural Center is an artists'
space operated by the nonprofit Huntington Beach Art League.
Lest you feel you are not getting a fair shake as an artist,
you can join the league for an affordable price and enter
artwork into the gallery open exhibits and annual
competitions. But there is also another opportunity to get
shown. For a rental fee after applying and waiting your turn
you can hold your very own exhibition in the the Artist
Corner, a small glassed room with carpeted wall panels where
you can hang your original paintings, place sculptures, and
hang photographs for a month.
Many artists have enjoyed showcasing their art to the
world in this space where they experience much control over
the display. Exhibitors can even host receptions for their
month-long art exhibit events.
Windows Gallery is named for the amazing, expansive
window space that reflects the surroundings ranging from
Central Park with its outdoor water fountains, to the indoor
architecture overlooking a huge spiral walkway, tall columns
and water treatments that cascade and splash to the space
As another option for smaller bodies of work, you can
enter the annual non-juried exhibit at the City of
Huntington Beach's Art Center. That exhibit limits your
entries to several, first come first serve, and does charge
a fee for entry into the gallery exhibit that runs approx.
one month. That gallery is located on the 500 block of Main
Street just five short blocks from the beach.
