IN 2016 HERMOSA BEACH HAD ZERO GALLERIES. Like the butcher, banker, and locksmith, galleries are part of our civic construct. ART makes us whole. But we had no place to show or share our artwork, no local workspaces or studios to call home, and our local elementary school offered zero art classes.

In fall 2016 we founded the Hermosa Beach Artists Collective, a 501(c)3 non profit with a committed vision of building a healthy, thriving art x community.

Our Goals:
• Bring galleries back to Hermosa Beach
• Create a collective workspace for local artists to call home
• Solidify funding for art programs in our local schools

Our permanent home, RESIN, is the gallery and workshop for our 27 Collective members - all local artists and photographers. Through our fundraisers we’re ensuring the YoungAtArt program stays funded for the entire Hermosa Beach School district.

We’re reimagining the gallery experience so that its relatable to our patrons. We are exploring models that respect the financial challenges of the artist, honor the spirit of the creative, reinvest in the local art scene. and keep our artwork connected to our community and youth.

We’ve become a family and a home for a new fresh scene of local artists. Self-reliant through our patron donors, member contributions, and volunteer hours – the Collective built a gallery x workshop x creative lab for local youth. Our Youth Program of 16 Students Under the Age of 16 is at the heart of our vision. Their work embodies the authentic voice from the next generation of our local culture.
