Best Art Shows in Downtown LA

1. Corey Helford Gallery

The vast space, the bar, the music, the vibe (and the art of course) all combine to make this gallery a monthly destination to see their latest exhibition.

2. Superchief Gallery LA

Stocked with plenty of Pabst Blue Ribbon, wine and daring art too, the shows at Superchief never disappoint.

3. Gabba Gallery

Okay, technically not in the middle of downtown – but close enough for a visit. Director/Curator Jason Ostro not only knows how to attract scenesters to his shows, he also knows how to attract scenesters that buy art. There are plenty of people and red dots at Gabba. Bar is stocked with beer, sometimes wine, and always a blended vodka drink.

5. Cactus Gallery

Cactus Gallery owner Sandra Mastroianni, just celebrated her well-deserved 13th Anniversary. These shows are laid back and the BYOB philosophy usually results in more beer than wine. This is the premier gallery to visit during the annual Frogtown Artwalk as well as their monthly exhibitions.
