About the Gallery
The Thousand Oaks Community Art Gallery, owned and operated by the City of Thousand Oaks, opened in 1991 and hosts a wide range of visual arts, exhibitions, workshops, artist presentations and special events. It showcases the work of professional and emerging artists who present an array of original imagery, artistic techniques and visual styles. Original art may also be available for purchase. Individual artists and arts organizations may rent the Gallery.
Gallery Hours & Location
Gallery hours vary with each show's opening through closing. The Gallery is located south of the Ventura (101) Freeway at the intersection of Borchard Road and Michael Drive, adjacent to the Newbury Park Library. See map on the right sidebar.
Reservations are taken on a quarterly basis, by lottery, on the last Monday of the month, six months prior to the beginning of the desired reservation period, at 9:00 a.m. at the Grant R. Brimhall Library. For example, the lottery for reservations set to begin in January, February and March would be held on the last Monday in June at 9:00 a.m. in the main lobby of the Grant R. Brimhall Library. Reservations made after the lottery closes are accepted on a first come, first served basis. ** Due to the COVID situation, rather than an in-person lottery, the next opportunity to request tentative reservations for July, August and September, 2023, will be via email on Monday, December 19, 2022, starting at 9:00 am PST. Please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Requests are timestamped by the time received. Requests received prior to 9:00 am PST or to any other email address will not be considered. Please include the name of the organization, month / date requested and contact information.
If you are interested in reserving the Gallery, please download the forms and application [PDF]. The current rental fee is $700.00 per month plus insurance. Please arrive at the lottery with your completed application and a check for the rental. You will have 30 days to provide proof of insurance.
Renters requesting less than a full month’s rental will be considered at a prorated fee. For a full description of the City’s rental fees, policies and procedures, please see the City’s User Fee Manual or contact Debra Hoadley at email@example.com or (805) 480-7204.
