ERICA BROUSSARD GALLERY is pleased to announce its move to 1666 N. Main St., Santa Ana, CA 92701!

The Santa Ana Arts Collective is the first project entitled under the Santa Ana Adaptive Reuse Ordinance. Meta Housing will transform an underutilized, five-story, mid-century, high vacancy commercial building into 58 high quality affordable apartment units for working artists and their families. The development will also be ERICA BROUSSARD GALLERY’S new home. The new development will be located in the heart of Main Street’s “Cultural Corridor” in Santa Ana, making it the perfect place for artists to live and thrive. The Gallery is scheduled to open the beginning of 2020. Until then, our space at 404 West 4th Street is closed in preparation for our move and grand opening. We are still showing work at venues throughout town.

The Collective will feature a mix of studios, one- two- and three-bedroom floor plans, and will be constructed to feature a ground floor art gallery, ERICA BROUSSARD GALLERY. The Gallery will continue to showcase the work of historically underrepresented artists and in addition, the space will also serve as a Curators’ Residency to support and cultivate the work of emerging curators and art historians. There will be more news and information about our plans and programs as we move closer to the opening! Keep a look out and add yourself to our email list for updates. We are looking forward to seeing you in a our new space!

Officiallly ERICA BROUSSARD Gallery!

Dear Friends:

As of February 1st 2019, we are now ERICA BROUSSARD Gallery. This change reflects the business’s focus on personal relationships, and its growth beyond an art gallery and into an increasingly diversified entity which provides a spectrum of art related services (sales, curatorial, artist development, collector consulting, etc.). In alignment with the adoption of this new name, this website will become ericabroussard.com and the Instagram account will become ericabroussardart.

A little over two years ago, in a 98 square foot gallery, I started with the simple goal of providing a venue for underrepresented and historically marginalized artists to share their work with the world. Today, thanks to the many wonderful people who share my passion for saying, “have you seen that amazing Artist” rather than saying, “have you seen that <race/gender/etc.> - American artist” this undertaking has steadily increased its reach and ability to assist artists.

The choice to use my maiden name, Broussard, is a nod to my Father, an ardent, African-American entrepreneur and fearless gambler when it came to pursuing his passion. As we do now, ERICA BROUSSARD GALLERY will strive everyday to continue his spirit.

As always, thank you to everyone for your support. Please feel free to check-out our current exhibition.

Sincerely,

Erica Wall


We are very pleased to announce that Shasha Dothan was awarded the Israeli Ministry of Culture Prize for a Young Artist 2018. Congratulations!

אני שמחה וגאה לבשר שזכיתי בפרס אמן צעיר של משרד התרבות והספורט לשנת 2018. תודה לשופטות ולשופטים שבחרו בי. אני מקווה שבשנת 2019 אמשיך ליצור אמנות שמעלה שאלות מאתגרות ומייצרת דיונים .

Queens International biennial - October 2018

Established in 2002, the Queens International highlights the contemporary cultural production of communities in the borough. Organized by Sophia Marisa Lucas, assistant curator at the Queens Museum, and the New York–based performance artist Baseera Khan, this year’s edition will explore systems of knowledge production in the digital and analog realms. Taking inspiration from the historical emergence of the public library and its ability to confront cultural changes brought about by the internet, “Volumes” will focus on the role of artists as “professional non-specialists” who are able to encapsulate our everyday virtual lives.
