Orange County Center For Contemporary Art - 45 Photos & 13 Reviews - Art Galleries - 117 N Sycamore St, Santa Ana, CA - Phone Number - Yelp
My husband and I had our wedding reception here last month and it was perfect!! If you are looking for something a little urban, and an open floor plan, this is your place for an event! There are 3 rooms to use, we used the main area for our tables, the DJ and our photo booth. The back room we used to set up a Wii, and we used their projection screen, the front was more a quiet room for people to sit and get out of the craziness.
OCCCA was very easy to work with, the price was great, and if we ever have an event again, I will do it here!
Really cool gallery! they have interesting expositions and renewed every month (maybe sooner, I'm not sure) I have been going there as a part of the SantaAna ArtWalk for years and it never have disappointed me.
Have been to several shows here, and most recently had my own work included in a juried show, "Body Language". Everyone at the gallery was polite and friendly at every reception and every step along the way for the show. Drop-off and pick-up were painless and easy, and my work was treated with care.
Very busy receptions, with lots of the OCCCA member artists in attendance and fun to talk to. The lectures I've seen at other shows (including the JPL show) have been fascinating and add quite a bit to the experience.
I would certainly show here again. The only thing I'd prefer is having the show's catalog published on time for the show- we've torn down already, and the catalog still hasn't arrived! Bummer!
My fiance and I chose to have our wedding here! Right when we walked into this gallery, we knew that this felt right. We wanted to do something un traditional, and we loved having this blank canvas to work with for designing our wedding. The night was beautiful and Pam was so easy to work with! It was OCCCA's first ever wedding, so they were a little hesitant, but I'm sure it will be the first of many weddings there! Thank you OCCCA!! -The only issue in using this place for your wedding is that you have to do pretty much everything on your own. You need to rent your own tables/chairs/linens/dishes etc. You also need to make sure you have people or hire staff to clean up and serve, and the biggest thing is that you will need to set up everything on your own, unless you have an event coordinator who can arrange that all for you! I hope this helps!!
Out of all the galleries we visited, this would have to be my favorite. The space is pretty big and I like its minimalistic feel where they don't pack a lot in giving it a claustrophobic feel. The current exhibit is entitled "Fashionistas" and showcases outfits made with different everyday items such as: Target grocery bags, clothes pegs, newspapers, the tape from cassette tapes, etc.
Innovative and highly creative! I think this might be one of those galleries where I may enjoy an exhibition no matter what it might be. I like contemporaryart!!! The staff who manages this place is very friendly as well.
I don't know the gallery as intimately as some other reviewers, having only been in once during a musical performance, but it was a good space and it was accessible and friendly. I love this part of SantaAna. The Artist Village is very quaint, with the older buildings and trees lit up with lights, and it makes for an enjoyable evening. I say, add these guys to your list of things to do. It's sure to be interesting.
"...and art too! The OrangeCountyCenter for ContemporaryArt is hosting a FREE event w/ art exhibits by artist: Kebe Fox, Stephen Anderson and Richard Towle. LIVE MUSIC by: Street Spirit, Center Cannot Hold, Tommy Spase & the Alchemists. Topping the night off is a dark couture fashion show by Shawk Stitches (Corset Show)."
The show itself was rather brief though highly captivating & creative. My only lament, not bringing my own camera though plenty of professionals flanked entire spacious layout. Highlight: sharing entire fun experience w/5super awesome, art-lovin, beauty-appreciating, fashionistas gfs.
Beautiful gallery. Just went there when I attended a work related event. It's a large open space with some great art, right in the heart of down town SantaAna, which I had also never visited. I would definitely go again and recommend that you visit, at least once!
I've only been here once, but it was one of the best experiences I've had at an art gallery. My friend an I came for a special "Siouxsie Sioux"/gothic-themed night where they had several great musical performances as well as a screening of a 1980s Berlin Siouxsie Sioux show. At that time, they had an exhibition going on showcasing a variety of really fantastic gothic artwork. The people running the gallery were very friendly and helpful, and we left feeling very inspired. This is a wonderful gallery that is a perfect spot to visit if you like creative, innovative, thought-provoking art.
You won't find a gallery as diverse and interesting than this. Each show is a different experience, and caters to a wide variety of artistic tastes. Also, opening night for a new exhibition is extremely fun and high energy! They take place on the first Saturday of every month, which just happens to be the SantaAnaArt Walk. In the area are dozens of galleries, and if you haven't been to one you have really been missing out. It is not uncommon that OCCCA has special music performances, dance performances and other special events monthly. You can check out the details for current and upcoming exhibitions at occca.org.
This is a cool gallery found within the SantaAna Artist Village area. I always go here as one of my gallery stops during the SantaAna artwalk, which happens every first Saturday of the month. Sometimes there are bands/ musicians that play in the gallery during the first Saturday receptions. It's pretty cool. They also occasionally have a call for artists, so you can submit your work and maybe it'll be picked for the show!
