The Gallery

Our History

The Cambria Center for the Arts Gallery (formerly Allied Arts Gallery) has been in existence for over 75 years. The artists who started the organization opened a gallery in the Old Santa Rosa School House when it was located on the West side of Cambria. They eventually moved to our current location, occupying the hallways of the old grammar school at 1350 Main Street in the middle of town.

The CCA Gallery is comprised of three hallway wings: One for Featured Artists or those who follow the theme of a non-juried show; one for Member Artist Stations, which are section devoted to a single artist for a longer period of time; and one hallway wing for members and non-members who just want to participate in an exhibit. Each of these areas can include 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional hung work as well as free-standing work on the floor or on our pedestals. We also have display cabinets for smaller works and jewelry. Our exhibits are changed bi-monthly and include Juried and non-Juried events, some of which have themes. We also invite featured artists to apply each year for consideration. 

Opening Receptions

Opening receptions are held on the first Saturday after an exhibit opens. They start at 4:30pm and all are welcome. This last year we've moved our receptions to an online venue, which has been wonderfully fun and interactive. The featured artists are alway present, but many of our member artists who have art displayed also come for the festivities.

Opening Receptions are always listed on our website, sent out as an email reminder to our mailing list, and advertised in our Newsletter. Feel free to contact the Gallery Director with any questions.
