Our Mission

Mission & values

To provide art education and development of the visual arts for all ages in Stockton and San Joaquin County.

Our History

Established in 1936

In 1936, a group of artists met every week at The Haggin Museum to share their artistic talents. One of the group, Marcella Wood, conceived the idea to form an art club. Because of her efforts, the Stockton Art League was officially established in 1936 with Marcella Wood as president.
In 2001, thanks to the legacy and a generous contribution of benefactor Elsie May Goodwin, the Gallery opened its doors at 1902 Pacific Avenue, in Stockton’s Miracle Mile district, providing a permanent home for the Art League.
