    MISSION

The Pence Gallery's mission is to serve the community through offering high caliber art exhibits, supporting the development of local artists, and providing educational programs to visitors of all ages. The Pence Gallery fulfills this mission through museum-caliber exhibitions and educational programs. These offerings are supported by the Pence Gallery Association and guided by the Director.
The Association raises funds through memberships, gifts, art sales, and special events. Docent volunteers host the Gallery during open hours and assist the Director and Gallery Assistant with regular operations. Since its incorporation in 1976, the Pence Gallery has served as a leader in the visual arts of Northern California.

    HISTORY
1976
The Pence Gallery is a 501-c-3 nonprofit art organization founded in 1976.

The Pence Gallery in the heart of downtown Davis, California is a not-for-profit art gallery. Its name derives from the original benefactors, Joe and Hazel Pence. The building, once the site of Joe Pence's thriving dental practice, was gifted to the city of Davis by the couple to be used as a venue for the fine arts.

A hallmark for the fine arts, the Pence Gallery has been a member of the Davis community for over thirty years. Fine art exhibitions throughout the year are partnered with art lectures, Art Smart programs, and tours.
