Carlsbad Oceanside Art League Mission

“We encourage artistic growth”, and open the world of art to everyone irrespective of their level of artistic or creative experience, or background, and provide accessible platforms, resources, and opportunities for artists to create, exhibit, and share their work.

We are a volunteer-based Membership and appreciate their valuable time in support of the North Coastal Art Gallery.

History of North Coastal Art Gallery and Carlsbad-Oceanside Art League

The North Coastal Art Gallery is managed by the (COAL), Carlsbad-Oceanside Art League which is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, formed in August 1951, by a group of 5 emerging and established artists who lived in the Carlsbad and Oceanside area. Their mission was to promote art education and cultural appreciation in the community, and whose primary purpose is to provide art enrichment to artists, and provide a place to display artwork.
