Welcome! The Artists' Co-op of Mendocino is located in the charming north coast village of Mendocino, California. The Co-op has been a destination for traditional and contemporary fine arts since 1988. We exhibit the work of 20 artist members and two guest artists.
Did you know we moved?
Our new location, since January 2016, is at the NW corner of Kasten and Albion Sts in Mendocino (formerly the Reflections/Kaleidoscope store).
Membership and Guest Artists
Are you an active artist and interested in applying for Membership or being a Guest Artist? We would like to meet you and encourage you to find out about our Co-op. Consideration is based on available space, gallery needs, and other attributes associated with a cooperative art gallery.
Although currently we have limited space, we are building wait lists for potential members and guest artists.

Our Co-op supports sustainable practices.
• Our replacement of traditional gallery lighting with LEDS has reduced our electricity use and bill by more than two thirds.
• Packaging we use for shipping art makes use of recycled materials.
Need a ROOSTER to celebrate Chinese New Year? David Cross has a few North Coast Roosters featured in his marine paintings and cards.
Suzi Long, for the third time, has been selected to participate in the Los Gatos Plein Air show June 13-19. She will join other juried-in artists in painting the town. Congratulations!
