About Agenda

About Agenda

agenda's founder, Jamie Wilson has been actively collecting art since the 1980s. In 2000 she opened her first gallery, Square Blue, in a tiny upstairs off-street location in Newport Beach, CA. The hard-to-find location quickly became a hub for some of the most cutting edge and experimental art going on in Orange County. Many of those then unknown artists went on to major gallery representation and museum collections.

Those early relationships have enabled the newest iteration of Wilson’s art endeavors to include some of the finest emerging and mid-career art available today. agenda’s main focus is educating collectors to become adept at spotting talent and engaging in the conversation that art exists within. You should never feel intimidated by questioning what art really is and agenda is comfortable having that dialogue with you.

Exhibitions at the gallery rotate about every 5 weeks and there are many other events that agenda participates in. Join the mailing list to be kept informed and to become involved.
