Phantom Galleries

It is the goal of the Aberdeen Art Center to help beautify the downtown district. One of the ways to do this is to create Phantom Galleries in vacant downtown storefronts.

Artists wishing to have their art displayed in a Pantom Gallery should contact Douglas Orr at 562-208-4226. Window displays will change out bi-monthly.

All Phantom Gallery exhibits include the art, information about the art and artist, and how the art can be purchased.


Our Phantom Gallery program was adopted from the similar program that we used in Long Beach California. The program was used in Palm Springs and Los Angeles as a means of blight control. Participating properties must have electricity to light the art and allow the store front to be cleaned and sometimes painted.

Classroom Space

Classroom space is available for one-on-one individual lessons or for multi-student classes up to 20. The 450 sq ft class room seats up to 20 at the work stations or more for pad or easle work. Special rates are available for on going classes. Class spaces are in close proximity to restrooms and sink area for clean up.

Artists wishing to offer art classes at the center should contact Douglas Orr for rental rates at 562-208-4226

The Aberdeen Art Center strives to provide local artists avenues to create, show and sell their art, and at the same time, help build a more vibrant and livable community.
