The Transformative Power of Art

The Whittier Art Association formed in 1934, with the goal of bringing art into the growing community of Whittier.  The Association built the Whittier Art Gallery, in 1939, and began exhibiting the work of many of the most prominent artists in the Southland.  For over 80 years the Gallery has provided monthly art exhibits, at no charge to the public.  The Whittier Art Association and Gallery is a nonprofit 501 (c)3.

The Whittier Art Association and Gallery is now open regular hours, Wed-Sun 1-5 pm.  To ensure the health & safety of our community, visitors, and staff, COVID protocols are in place for everyone's protection.

We have opened opportunities to view and purchase works of art from our Present Exhibit page and the Gift Gallery page.  

Visit our Gift Gallery to find unique handmade gifts for family and friends.

Meet "The Guardian of the Garden"

The Whittier Art Association and Gallery is pleased to share with you our latest installation, "Guardian of the Garden" a sculpture by Gallery member, Dale La Casella. “The Guardian of the Garden” evokes the artist’s sense of whimsy and delight in the natural elements of the garden combined with a love of medieval lore and renaissance fantasy. He stands, or rather sits, as a totem welcoming you to the gallery on our Moreland Avenue side of the Gallery.
