Arcadia Contemporary was founded in 2001 with a mission to exhibit highly skilled, representational artists. Originally located in the center of Manhattan’s Soho District, the gallery attained international renown for featuring works that revealed their creators’ ability to paint and draw well in concert with unique, signature styles.
In 2016 Arcadia Contemporary moved to Santa Monica, California, and into the Bergamot Station Arts Complex. This complex, a former railroad yard, now houses over 20 esteemed galleries. It is unique as a site by offering convenient, pedestrian access to numerous galleries displaying a diverse array of artworks.
