Los Angeles is one of the most important contemporary art centers in the United States. A wide variety of galleries and art resources are available for residents and visitors alike. If you want to begin collecting contemporary art or add to your collection these galleries will be glad to help you. This partial list of Los Angeles galleries and resources is an excellent starting point for interested collectors at all stages of acquisition. You will find additional galleries and more comprehensive listings in our section of California Gallery Guides. Most of the galleries listed below are in the primary art market--- they work with and represent living artists. Some of the other galleries specialize in the secondary art market ( i.e. resale of art works ) for contemporary art. You will also find a few other art resources to guide you in your art education. This is not a comprehensive listing, just one to help you get started in your search for contemporary art.

As always, we suggest that you support local art galleries, artists, art organizations and art museums whenever possible. And, please tell your art friends about and mention this guide in Social Media.
