We have a small permanent collection (105 pcs) that we have grown since we opened our doors in 2000.  The collection ranges from large-scale historic paintings to abstract bronze sculptures.

We do not currently have existing funding to purchase artwork for the collections, but do selectively accept donations to the permanent collection after they go through a three-stage approval process.

We welcome inquiries for loans from professional institutions who can insure their security while in their care. Please call Katie Pearson, Assistant Director to inquire: 805-686-8315.

In the gallery below you will see a majority of our artworks.  There are additional pieces in our collections by artists Tom Millea, Clyde Butcher, Robert Allen Cale and Everett Ruess.  Contact us for details.

Our latest acquisition is a donation by Deborah and Robert Veldkamp made in 2015, for which we are grateful!
