Distinction Gallery was created in 2004 to give beginning and established
collectors a venue to purchase high-quality, cutting edge artwork. Distinction
has hosted over 120 exhibitions since its inception featuring emerging, mid-career
and veteran professional artists. The primary genres forwarded at Distinction are
Contemporary Realism, Surrealism and Urban art with a focus on the figure. Our
primary media focus is original oil and acrylic paintings; however, we occasionally
display drawings and mixed media. Distinction's artwork is available for purchase online
to clients around the world, and most of our artists are available for commissions.
Please feel free to contact us with questions.
In order to further expand our offerings to our community, we converted part
of our location to ArtHatch, a non profit organization. Distinction
donates a generous amount to ArtHatch annually. We host opening receptions
on the Second Saturday of every month featuring open studios, Stone Beer, BK Cellars Wine,
live music from San Diego and Los Angeles musicians, and plenty of engaging artwork.
Tuesday - Friday: 11 am - 5 pm
Saturday: 12 pm - 5 pm
Second Saturday Receptions: 6 pm - 10 pm
