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).
