Neighborhood: Santa Ana/Garden Grove/Stanton

Located in historic downtown Santa Ana, Nomadic Image is far from traditional. The gallery endlessly reinvents itself with a new show every two months. Past themes include Mardi Gras and red-light districts, and they have also hosted events dedicated solely to images by point-and-shoot cameras. The space takes on a new look that is unique to each show; the walls have been black, red, covered in newspapers or adorned with chain link fencing. The ceiling has also taken on various guises, sometimes composed entirely of exposed pipes and sometimes swathed in fabric. Nomadic Image is supported by an eclectic group of photographers who take more pride in creativity than marketing. Each image, from its content and technique to its presentation, is meant to invoke thought and appreciation. The best time to visit the gallery is during the Santa Ana Art Walk, which takes place on the first Saturday evening of each month.
