In 2011 Yessíca Torres co-opened H Gallery + Studios in Ventura, California. As co-owner and chief curator of H Gallery, Yessíca’s contemporary and modern program was a clear break from the conventional art scene that surrounded her. Keeping focused on emerging and mid-career artists, H Gallery’s progressive gallery design and ambitious exhibition schedule were received with immediate regional success. As Yessíca’s artist roster and network grew to an international level, so did her aspirations.
With the revelation that art exposure should not be limited by physical location, Yessíca independently established Dab Art in 2014. This distinctive art company is dedicated to enhancing the contemporary art experience for artists, collectors and viewers in and outside the gallery setting. Dab Art embraces the relentless evolution of contemporary art by featuring experimental artists, highlighting innovative techniques and utilizing technological advances. Mainly focusing on mid-career to established artists, Dab Art’s current inventory of international artwork is available for purchase online. Our recent partnership with Arsty has greatly expanded our collector visibility, elevating the Dab Art sales experience.
Since it’s initial launch, Dab Art has expanded from standard gallery exhibitions to art publications, artist talks, panel discussions, video profiles, exhibition videos and now, documentary filmmaking; featuring our most remarkable and distinguished artists.
Yessíca still owns H Gallery, curated exclusively by Dab Art. Nestled between Malibu and Ojai, H Gallery is now one of the prevailing contemporary art spaces in the greater Los Angeles area. In addition to H Gallery, Dab Art curates for two satellite locations.
We are currently working on securing a new location in the city of Los Angeles. We anticipate a grand opening of our new gallery in January 2020.
