The Light Gallery was formed in 2007 as an outlet of expression for artists of all mediums, while showcasing both emerging and established artists who are unafraid of taking risks with their tools of creation. In it’s first two years of existence it has quickly established itself as Orange County’s premier venue for Underground, Lowbrow, Outsider & Urban Contemporary art. We also carry select books, magazines, clothing, music, & limited edition collectibles. The Gallery hosts monthly Art exhibitions , as well as featured weekly music events & comunity building workshops. Please Stay tuned to our Events Calendar for more info.

We hope to inspire, inform and effect positive change within Orange County’s artist community. Our intention is to be an artists resource for exposure and entertainment, for the greater good of everyone involved!
