The Artists' Coop of Mendocino was established in June 1988 for the purpose of selling members' art. The first President was Warren Zimmer. The Co-op is owned and operated by the members, which number fifteen to twenty. Selected guest artists are featured periodically. The Co-op gallery was originally located on Main St. above the quilt shop, but moved to the present address in January 2016. We like our new location, ground level entrance, and landscaping options. Our current space was built originally as an art gallery, in contrast to being a residence that has been adapted for use as a gallery.
Guest Artist Exhibits
Lynne Butler's painted plates and other ceramics continue to be exhibited in our gallery. Her work is unique and very collectible.
Sev Ickes will return later this summer. Her "primitive" and joyful paintings are still available. These are "must haves" for your collection.
Several ACM members are also EcoArtists:
Debra Lennox, Pat Scott, Suzi Long, Karen Bowers

Issues and Options
The Artists’ Co-op of Mendocino focuses on “Issues and Options” in our June show. The central work is an Artist’s Book assembled by Mary Ellen Campbell from pictorial and text contributions by nine Co-op members and laid out across the “Featured Artist Wall.” Participating artists for the Book are Shanti Benoit, Mary Ellen Campbell, Marian de Gloria, Debra Lennox, Suzi Long, Pat Toth-Smith, Karen Reynolds, Lynne Whiting Robertson and Lynne Zickerman. The spectrum of concerns relates to political, social, environmental and other “Issues and Options.” Additional works by members and guests supporting the June theme are identified by special labels throughout the gallery.
The show is up June 6 – July 2. The Artists’ Co-op Gallery is located on the corner of Kasten and Albion Streets in Mendocino, and is open daily 10:30-5:00. Visit on your own or with a friend. Strike up a conversation about the Issues and/or Options with another person or directly with the Art, itself! We are living in interesting and challenging times. You are invited to the Second Saturday reception June 9th5-8PM with the Artists’ Talk promptly at 5:30. Meet our artists, ask questions, and share your own responses to the art.
