Cayucos Community Art Gallery Open 1:00 - 4:00 pm, closed Monday & Tuesday


Every eight weeks a new show is promoted with an opening reception. Along with the many artists represented, one artist is usually featured. Artists who wish to be considered as a featured artist may submit an application.

Best of Show
Visitors to the Cayucos Art Gallery are invited to name their "favorite" work of art and complete a form provided. There is a box in which these completed forms are collected. The purpose is to provide feedback to the artists and is a means to encourage them. A show changes every 6 weeks and at the end of each show forms in the box get counted. Two selections are made: 1) Favorite Artist and 2) Favorite picture. As each artist most likely exhibits more than one piece of art on the wall in addition to having art work in the portfolio bins it is possible to have a favorite artist without this artist receiving the favorite picture award.

Gallery Policy


Paintings: 2 may be submitted.
Framed paintings must have braided wire and screw eyes. Saw tooth or other hangers are NOT acceptable.

There are many other things our members can do besides sitting the gallery.  We are looking for board help, people to volunteer with fund-raising and committees, our summer school program or teaching art classes, help with the newsletter or at receptions, etc.  We're always open to ideas and suggestions and want to encourage our members to be involved.
