The CAP Gallery's focus is to exhibit artists with a cohesive body of high quality work who may not have a level of recognition or gallery representation. Juried solo, small group and retrospective exhibits are the formats presented. For retrospective exhibits, we are looking for at least a 20-year body of work by an artist. Since the space is so large, we can accommodate two solo exhibitions simultaneously.

Exhibit receptions are on Saturdays, 11am - 1pm, honoring artists, their work, and allowing Art Lovers to also meet the Artist. During the course of the exhibit we also have a gallery talk featuring the artists and/or the curator, or a painting exhibition.




Community Art Project provides ongoing exhibitions in The CAP Gallery, located in the Wells Fargo Building, 260 Ocean Avenue, 2nd floor. The Festival of Arts displays art on the 3rd floor, making this iconic rotunda gallery space worthy of a visit and browse. Hours are 9-6 Monday through Friday, and 9 - 4 Saturdays. Admission is free.
