We are a vibrant and dynamic art space located in the heart of Benicia, California. Five years ago we moved from New York to California, hence the name, NY2CA.

Every seven weeks our exhibitions change to feature a different 2D and 3D artist or a solo exhibition. The medium(s) each artist uses changes for a fresh audience experience.

Our Mission is to provide artists with the opportunity to showcase a body of their work as well as their diversity.

Hope to see you soon!
