About the Gallery //

Distinction Gallery was created in 2004 to give beginning and established collectors a venue to purchase high-quality, cutting edge artwork. Distinction has hosted over 120 exhibitions since its inception featuring emerging, mid-career and veteran professional artists. The primary genres forwarded at Distinction are Contemporary Realism, Surrealism and Urban art with a focus on the figure. Our primary media focus is original oil and acrylic paintings; however, we occasionally display drawings and mixed media. Distinction’s artwork is available for purchase online to clients around the world, and most of our artists are available for commissions. Please feel free to contact us with questions.

In order to further expand our offerings to our community, we converted part of our location to ArtHatch, a non profit organization. Distinction donates a generous amount to ArtHatch annually. We host opening receptions on the Second Saturday of every month featuring open studios, Stone Beer, BK Cellars Wine, live music from San Diego and Los Angeles musicians, and plenty of engaging artwork.

ArtHatch is a 7,000 square foot building which houses Distinction Gallery: exhibitions changing monthly, “The Alley”, featuring 15 local artist, the teen room featuring artwork by 15+ teen artists, 16 artist studios, ranging in size from 150 to 500 sq ft, ArtHatch Escape Rooms, and Last Spot Art Bar.
