The mission of the Sanchez Art Center is to create community through art.
The art center provides exhibitions by emerging and established California artists; education and outreach programs designed to make art accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds; and affordable studio space for up to 30 Bay Area artists.
The art center has three exhibition spaces:
- Main Gallery - exhibitions by established and emerging California artists
- West Wing Gallery - Art Guild of Pacifica exhibitions
- East Wing Gallery - community and multicultural exhibitions by Bay Area organizations and children
Opening receptions are generally held from 7 to 9 p.m. on the first Friday of each exhibition. Galleries are staffed by volunteers and, during exhibitions, are open to the public on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m (except opening Fridays). Admission is free. Office hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 1 to 5 p.m.
