La Galería Gitana is proud to announce the newly formed non-profit* ARTreach91340. ARTreach91340 works closely with the gallery by continuing to bring fine-art to the City of San Fernando and provide space for artists to display, promote & sell their artwork.
Our first goal is to convert an area of the gallery into an art workshop that will bring specialized art classes to disadvantaged families through scholarships. Classes that are designed to inspire and provide fun, educational art experiences including the opportunities to display and sell artwork in a fine-art gallery setting.
