MALIBU, CA –– Malibu Contemporary Art Gallery, a gallery featuring contemporary works exclusively by Southern California-based artists, is currently open online and by appt. due to COVID.


Located in the Malibu Lumber Yard, the gallery features 14 established and award winning So Cal artists.  Lori Mills a Malibu resident, is the owner of Malibu Contemporary. Lori also serves as Vice President of the Malibu Art Association and founder of "The Malibu Art Institute." Bobbi Bennett serves as Art Director.  She has curated and owned previous galleries in the last several years." Mills and Bennett are established artists and have curated exhibits. Malibu Contemporary spotlights pieces by Malibu artists in solo shows in addition to representing 14 gallery artists in the permanent collection.


“We’ve poured so much passion into this, and supporting southern California artists has always been the number one driver for us,” says Bobbi. “These collections feature contemporary works by established artists , who exhibit internationally and are in museum collections. We give a percentage of art sales to a local non-profit, to serve Malibu, both as a city and a community.”

“This gallery really is a labor of love,” says Lori. “It’s always been important to me to support local businesses and artists of all kinds. My vision is to enrich and expand awareness in the arts for individuals in the Malibu community.  This is a place for that. Malibu Contemporary is the center of arts and culture in Malibu - we are the spark plug - founding "Malibu Art Institute", (an enrichment program for emerging artists to stay in Malibu, paint with me, and show at the gallery) is an example of that vision.”

We are proud of our elegant upscale contemporary collection suited for the coastal homes we live in. We thank our many collectors for placing our art in their homes.
