A little about us
Established in 2018, Loiter Galleries mission is to support local underserved artists by providing affordable gallery space, promotion, and general support even during the most challenging of times. We also serve the business community and our Long Beach neighborhoods by filling vacant store fronts with art and optimism. We believe that art is a powerful tool in the evolution of neighborhoods and cities. And that the accessibility of art is of the utmost importance.
Additionally Loiter Galleries fills a void. Mainly, serving the various needs of the underserved artists. The programs we develop assist both the business district and the arts community directly. For the artists, we supply affordable gallery showcases, marketing, supplies, meeting space, art business advice, and emotional support.
Conversely we aid local property owners by converting dark, empty spaces with art and positive activity. Artists finally have a venue to display their art and receive the support they need to learn how to be successful. The property owners sell/lease their spaces more quickly via the brightness, activity, and popularity of our projects.
Another core audience naturally, are art lovers and supporters. We serve them by presenting them with artists we discover and who are out of the mainstream. Although some of our artists are established, the shows they create tend to be more adventurous and push the boundaries. This occurs through our direction and collaboration. Many of our visitors have never been in a gallery previously.
