Copro Gallery was founded in 1992 by Joe Copro, Greg Escalante and Douglas Nason as an entity to curate art exhibitions of emerging artists and publish the highest quality limited edition prints. Copro Gallery also became a base for assisting and curating museum exhibitions which it continues to do. In 1994 owner Greg Escalante co-founded Juxtapoz magazine and the gallery participated with the magazine to curate, publicize and be a media sponsor of many events inside and outside of the gallery and further promote artists. In 2000 the gallery founded a permanent location in Culver City.
In 2005 The Gallery moved to Bergamot Station arts complex in Santa Monica CA with Gary Pressman as Gallery Director and soon after Douglas Nason left the gallery. The remaining owner Greg Escalante passed away in 2017 and the gallery is now being Managed and Directed by Gary Pressman and still owned by Joe Copro.
The gallery, located at Bergamot Arts, is divided into two exhibition spaces, sometimes featuring a single artist but often two or three. Large group exhibitions are also featured often in conjunction with outside curators . In following with it's original mission, Copro participates in International Art Fairs and curates outside exhibits to help promote their artists.
Focusing on museum quality installations showcasing emerging artists, Copro also exhibits many established and master painters. Placing works in private collections throughout the world, Copro strives to assist collectors new and experienced in building the most exciting collections possible.
