The Gallery at Hillcrest
Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley represent the homes of passionate and talented artists. These creators preserve culture and represent the rich history of many different backgrounds.
The Gallery at Hillcrest is an on-site showcase for residents to learn about the diversity of our area. When seniors think about what’s there to do in L.A. today, they can take a stroll through the art space. It’s one more benefit of a remarkable retirement community.
As a local non-profit, supporting artists and buying local community-made works is a part of our philosophy.
The rotating exhibits highlight cultural diversity and enrich our community with opening receptions, learning opportunities, and ways to spark conversation. Contact us to learn more about contributing to the local arts scene in La Verne, CA.

The watercolor selections of artist, Jim Stricks
July 3 – September 22, 2023
Daily 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
“These paintings and the title, Remembering, were chosen specifically for this Hillcrest exhibit. My thought being that here we are at the crest of the hill, where we are afforded views and a broader perspective of the treks we have made to arrive here. The images are not specific to my life, but are meant to be more generalized and metaphorical in order to evoke meaningful reverberations in the viewers. The elephant, known for its memory, was chosen as the symbol for the exhibit.” -Jim Stricks

“I’m driven by social and cultural inequalities. I express myself through a myriad of mixed media, including digital graphics.
