El Comalito Collective

El Comalito Collective is an art gallery and retail space that showcases underrepresented artists through a variety of media that spark consciousness. Our mission is to create networks that build support and foster opportunities for marginalized voices through works that explore the intersectionality of (but not limited to) race, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, gender, and religion through a decolonial lens. This is a space for and by community.

El Comalito Collective promises to deliver programming for the community which will include workshops, showcasing of artwork, retail, and proposals made by the community.


El Comalito Collective is an art gallery and retail space that supports and builds community by showcasing underrepresented voices through a collective of works that spark consciousness. This is a space by and for community

El Comalito Collective was born out of the necessity to create a platform for underprivileged artists to be able to connect and build a network of support. El Comal (The griddle) serves as the metaphor for the platform for which the space was created as el comal is the platform that serves as one of the catalysts for heating up tortillas and bringing family together. In the past el comal was centrally located and its heat weaved the family together, much like present day kitchens do. Tortillas are made from corn which is indigenous to our land and churned, ground, and transformed into maza for tortillas which then get heated on a platform, the comal, to act as sustenance and food. El Comalito Collective hopes to serve as the platform that will create sustenance for the Vallejo community through art.

We hope to build, support, and foster opportunities for underrepresented voices through this community space.
