William Merrill established his gallery in 1985.  Merrill saw a much needed niche for fine contemporary and modern art in Orange County. He combined his love, passion and appreciation of fine art with his determination to create what is today, a successfully growing, internationally recognized gallery.

An avid collector himself, Merrill wanted to offer masterfully executed, contemporary/modern art and sculpture for a sophisticated and discerning art collector.  Our focus is on mid-career/ascending artists, most of whom already have museum acquisitions and are still aggressively pursuing their craft.

We offer a challenging monthly exhibition  program of national and international artists such as Paul Ecke, Dan Corbin, Cybele Rowe, Christopher McVinish and Donna McGinnis - all offering a unique and stimulating creative vision.

The William Merrill Gallery has placed works in the finest collections across the nation and overseas. The gallery boasts a client list of distinguished collectors, designers, architects and corporations.

We welcome the opportunity to share the enthusiasm of collecting with clients looking to expand or start acquiring fine, original works of art. Our goal is for every patron to experience a journey of light, color, texture, and artistic inspiration.


Join us for a glass of wine, conversation and our most current exhibition. Laguna Beach hosts Art Walk the first Thursday of every month from 6 pm - 9 pm. We rotate the exhibitions every month so you can enjoy a different selection of our 35 world class artists.
