Brooks Theater Gallery

Artist Open House at the Brooks Theater Gallery

A free event open to artists, families, art lovers and supporters, as well as the general public, the Artist Open House features live music, an artist working in the Gallery on their current art piece, refreshments, and a concessions bar open for purchasing beer and wine. 

As part of a new direction for the Gallery, the Artist Open House will be offered year-round at the beginning of each new Gallery exhibition at the Brooks Theater Gallery, located in the historic downtown Oceanside Sunshine Brooks Theater. While as a unique venue whose mission is to create a visual energy and connection with the live performances produced and hosted by the Oceanside Theater Company (OTC) on the Main Stage, the Brooks Gallery has long served as a favorite gallery for numerous local artists, previously the Gallery limited artist events to Oceanside’s First Friday Artwalks.

With this new approach, Alex Goodman, the Managing Director for OTC, and Carol Naegele, Gallery Curator, aim to make the Brooks Theater Gallery a respected art destination of the San Diego County art world. 

For more information about the Artist Open House, to be added to our Artist Mailing List, or to volunteer to play music at the next artist opening, please contact Gallery Curator Carol Naegele at
