About the Gallery // Distinction Gallery was created in 2004 to give beginning and established collectors a venue to purchase high-quality, artwork created by highly skilled artists. Distinction has hosted over 130 exhibitions since its inception featuring mid-career and 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 7,0000 arts complex to ArtHatch, a non profit organization, in 2011. ArtHatch rents exhibition and studio space to emerging artists as well as offers a free teen program. Additionally we have two escape rooms and an Art Bar (Last Spot) within our building.
