Named for the historic arsenal Headquarters Building where it was originally located, HQ is an all volunteer run gallery that was granted nonprofit status in January of 2023. Our purpose is to support, mentor, and provide gallery display space for unrepresented and underserved emerging artists and to increase the public’s awareness and knowledge about various media, artistic styles, and artist processes in the visual arts.
Our programs include mentoring, education, and support of our artists in ways that include receptions, featured artists for our shows, and promotion on social media, the web, in printed material, and in the local press. We partner with other community nonprofit organizations, including the Benicia Historical Museum, Benicia Literary Society, Benicia Main Street, City of Benicia, and other galleries to provide educational and cultural opportunities for the public. We hope to expand our programming this year with artist demos, workshops, and creative gatherings for artists to network and share ideas.
We invite you to come and visit HQ Gallery. We are open Thursday through Sunday, 11 am to 5 pm.
