About the Gallery

Lois Lambert Gallery first opened in 1987, using the name Gallery of Functional Art. It was the original tenant as well as the first gallery to open in the Frank Gehry’s Edgemar building in Santa Monica, California. Then in 1994, Lois moved the gallery to Bergamot Station Arts Center and opened as Lois Lambert Gallery. The gallery exhibits painting, sculpture, mixed media, and photography. In an adjacent space the Gallery Store also opened, featuring high design and artist-made objects. Then The Project Room was conceived, offering a more intimate space for additional exhibitions. Finally in 2017, the Upstairs Gallery was created as well, adding event more space to exhibit art.

Lois Lambert Gallery represents over 75 artists from the United States, Latin America, South America, Europe and Asia, and is dedicated to bringing thoughtful, sometimes provocative, and always original art to the public.
