Once a railroad station, the five-acre campus now serves as a creative arts complex with more than 20 fine art galleries showcasing a variety of creative works from permanent and rotating artists. For fine-art photography and photo-based art, check out dnj Gallery, owned by acclaimed LA photographer Pamela Schoenberg. Meanwhile, Hillary Gruenberg — who creates vibrant works using collage, watercolor, pencil, and acrylic — will be featured at the Lois Lambert Gallery from January 11 until March 6. Don’t miss New York, New York! through March 14, an exhibit at the Peter Fetterman Gallery displaying black-and-white modern and vintage photographs, each of which captures a special slice of the Big Apple by a mix of photographers.

The largest artist residency program in Southern California isn’t just about creating art that looks good, but also that does good, serving as a think tank for a community of artists from around the world. Said artists share their works with the goal of creating dialogue and fostering positive social change. The Main Gallery is open to the public on weekdays, and special exhibitions take place at the center’s Airport Campus (just up the street at Santa Monica Municipal Airport) — most shows begin and end with a reception and a conversation with the artists. To mark Women’s History Month in March, look for Las Hijas de los Días. 7 Female Views from the Margins, showing from January 27 to April 3.
