Patricia Correia Gallery (PCG) was first established in Venice,
California in 1991. Since then, the Gallery has provided a forum for
artists who create contemporary fine arts and artists who work in
various media including painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking,
installation, video, and new genre. In 1994 the gallery was invited to
participate at Bergamot Station Art Center in Santa Monica, CA. From
1991 through 2003, the focus of the gallery was on contemporary fine art
originating on the West Coast, with a concentration on artwork from Los
In 2003, the director, Ms. Correia, refocused the gallery's
direction; staying within the focus of contemporary art, yet
concentrating on artwork by Mexican-American, Chicana/o artists
throughout the United States. Many of the artists represented by the
gallery during this project, participated in the founding of the
"Chicano Art Movement" which has been evolving over the last 40 plus
years. These visual artists have participated in public artwork, grants,
art biennials, gallery and museum exhibitions and museum collections
both nationally and internationally. This exclusive five year project
concluded in 2008. Within the gallery, Chicana/o art continued to remain
as a part of the gallery's curatorial focus.
In 2004, Rae Anne Robinett joined the gallery and became director of
PCG in 2005. Ms. Robinett was the director of FaufiTown Projects
(established 2006) and Patricia Correia Gallery. Upon creating Patricia
Correia Productions in 2006, Ms. Correia became Executive Director and
renewed her commitment to championing international artists. Patricia
Correia Productions sponsors both Patricia Correia Gallery, sister
gallery FaufiTown Projects, and Patricia Correia Publishing (publisher
of fine art prints by invitation since 2001).
