The Story of Gallery Q

Gallery Q was founded by local artists who are passionate about the visual arts as essential expressions of our shared humanity. Their initial goal was to showcase Laguna’s many older nonprofessional artists. Thanks to the Festival of Arts Foundation, generous major donors, and the support of local working artists, Gallery Q now welcomes visual artists of all ages and backgrounds.

Gallery Q is professionally managed by Art Director Bill Atkins, Arts Coordinator Judy Baker, and Carole Zavala, who chairs its Arts Advisory Council. They present five curated exhibitions each year, often in partnership with local arts organizations such as the Laguna Art Museum, Community Art Project, and LOCA.

The exhibitions include paintings, photographs, collages, drawings, sculpture, ceramics, mosaics, jewelry, textiles, mixed media, and digital art. Each show opens with a reception and awards ceremony, and then runs for several months. Many artists allow their work to be sold, with a portion of the proceeds supporting Gallery Q.
