Gloria Delson Contemporary Arts (GDCA) is a full-service contemporary arts gallery located on Spring Street in Downtown Los Angeles, in the heart of Gallery Row.
After serving as a private art dealership for more than thirty years, catering to private and corporate clientele, GDCA debuted their gallery space in March 2010, which is open to the public.
GDCA’s expertise includes a keen eye for emerging artists, a special relationship with established artists, and an enthusiastic interest in undervalued artists.
GDCA has access to a diverse body of works that include painting, sculpture, graphics, original prints, and photography.
We work with many artists. The artwork on this website represents only a fraction of the collections we carry in our gallery.

GLORIA DELSON has earned a reputation for her undisputed eye for talent. A former award-winning sculptor herself, Gloria has been an avid collector since early adulthood. Living in a NYC efficiency apartment just out of college, she used to store art under her bed for lack of room.
Having always had a particular interest in avant-garde, contemporary art – (no Flora and Fauna!!) – Gloria has traveled the world to seek out non-traditional works. This passion led her into a full-time career as an art-dealer more than 30 years ago.
Gloria still specializes in championing the new and untried in abstraction, and mentoring fresh, new talent continues to be a big bonus in her life.
PETRA WRIGHT grew up in Kassel, Germany; home to the Dokumenta International Art Festival, which launched some of the most provocative artists of the 20th Century. This ample exposure laid the foundation for Petra's interest in art, particularly the abstract and contemporary.
An actor by profession, Petra received her BFA in Theatre from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, while working professionally on stage and in independent film.
Ultimately, her career brought her to Los Angeles, where she connected with Gloria Delson, in whom she found a kindred aesthetic spirit. Since 2004, Petra has been Gloria's right hand, acting as Gallery Manager, Curator, and Talent Scout.
