City Art opened its doors at 828 Valencia St. in 1998, and has remained a constant in the radically changing Valencia corridor. The idea for the gallery emerged when several friends who were also artists wanted to create a viable formula for a group-operated business where they could regularly show their art and also open membership to other artist with quality work but who may not have had any viable outlets in which to show their art. A formula was worked out in which artist could "rent" a wall space for a month, and receive back at at at least 70 percent of any sales. To this day, this formula has been successful, more than covering rent and other gallery overhead -- without any paid employees. Artists themselves sit shifts any month in which they are showing, and also cover other ongoing maintenance duties. In 2016, the gallery sold $216,000 in art, with more than $151,000 of that being returned to our current membership of more than 100 artists (and growing).
