The Brea Gallery strives to provide ambitious contemporary art exhibitions for Brea and beyond. The Gallery aims to enrich and engage our community though educational, aesthetic, and intellectual experiences, all while cultivating meaningful relationships with artists.
The Brea Gallery is a 6,500 square foot contemporary art space that presents four major exhibitions per year. Located in the Brea Civic and Cultural Center, the Gallery has been offering meaningful exhibitions, workshops for all ages, artist lectures, live art demonstrations, a gift shop, and unique artistic opportunities for the community since it opened in 1980.
The Brea Gallery is a community-based arts space, working with upcoming and established artists in a variety of ways. However, the Gallery does not represent artists, have a permanent collection, or offer art appraisals. Please visit our opportunities page for information on how you can be a part of what we do here.
Be sure to experience all of Brea’s arts programs. The intimate 200-seat Curtis Theatre is located just across the plaza from the Gallery and offers a year-round schedule of stunning performances. As well, Brea is widely known for it’s Art in Public Places Program, featuring over 185 sculptures throughout the city.
